Card Patterns #99 and Papertrey Ink

Happy Friday my dear sweet friends!!! I am so happy today is Friday!!! It's been a great day, but a little taxing on my brain. The computer techs are still working on fixing our Library Software and in the mean-time we are having to adjust for all the discrepancies when checking out books. For the most part I have been enjoying the challenge. I have had to learn where books are located by the Dewey Decimal System rather than relying on the computer. Today however, we checked out a ton of books and we had a lot of steps to follow to make sure we have record of patrons and books alike....whew!!! What a day! Let me just say, computers aren't fool-proof! You always need a back-up plan!

Thank goodness for crafting! I can lose myself in the art of creating and I can relax and let my brain recover! Ah...creating is a balm to my soul!!!

Today I thought it would be fun to take part in the Card Patterns Challenge!!!
