Today started with a parade of red, white and blue in the middle of downtown Arlington. Folks from all over gather on this rather mild day to watch the floats and introduce the little ones to the joys of celebrating.
Not only are there the parades but the food is absolutely delicious! That's the best part; tasting from from all cultures and tastes...whew talk about throwing calories to the wind! Well for me it starts with a light dinner today because I know tomorrow after I travel to visit my grans there will be more food to eat and lots more sugar splurges...no diet this weekend.
With all the celebrations, fireworks and food surrounding me I still found a few hours to retreat into my craft room to play with a couple of new toys. I like getting new crafting tools but I must stay on budget and purchase only two items per week, which comes out of my weekly allowance. It seems to be working so I'll try to stick with the plan. It doesn't count when there is a special even going on though.
So this week I have two new cards to share with everyone.
Charisma Cardz - Challenge "Lace"
Crafts and Me - Challenge "Anything Goes"
