Card Organizer

I finally got around to making one of these after seeing it on Dannie's blog. And again, once you can actually read and get the measurements correct, they really are easy! I'm not sure what my trouble is lately...but I kept scoring one of the pieces at 10" instead of at 10.5" and couldn't figure out why nothing matched up!!! Finally I sat down and read her measurements and new exactly what my problem this was the 2nd attempt...the first one hit the garbage. I think I'll be making more of these real soon. Oh ya and the measurements and a video tutorial are on her site...go check it out!! There may be other tutorials out there too, but this is the one I came across first and it's wonderful.
I got some ribbon from Taylor a while back and this is the first time I have had a chance to use the twill...let me tell you, it is absolutely wonderful to work silky and ties perfect:-)
It is crazy how much snow we have here...we attempted to go to the bull sale today, but turned around and came home. The snow was up to my thighs!! Nuts for the 19th of April!! It has been blowing and snowing all afternoon...hopefully it will stop tonight and clear up tomorrow, but who knows whats in store for us.
Kirsten is enjoying her sleepover with Auntie Bee (that's what she calls my sister Kim)!! We are going to wait and see what the weather is like tomorrow to see when she'll be coming home!! She may spend a night back at my Mom and Dad's if it is blizzard like out again...we'll see.
Landon is definitely enjoying the one on one time with Lance and I, but at the same time, he definitely knows Kirsten is not here...he also knows that she's at Auntie Bee's!
I think Lance and I are going to watch Knocked Up! I recorded it on the satellite DVR a while back when it was on TV so since there is not much on TV tonight and the Flames don't play again until tomorrow night, I think we'll watch a movie.
Have a wonderful evening and I sure hope you don't have 6" of snow where you are!
