Gina K. Challenges.

Happy Monday my friends!. Did you enjoy your weekend? I hope you did. Is it the weather really hot where you are? Well, there has been really HOT! This weekend we got 104F on Saturday and 100F on Sunday, eve nthough DD still having allergy problems, sometimes really bad ones, she wanted to be outside and enjoy the pool, so we did!! It feel so good!! I really wanted to stay in the water the whole time, refreshhhhing!!! On the other hand, DH didn't have a good weekend, he started feeling a bit congested on Friday morning, Saturday morning we did yard work (very early, we started at 6:15 am), after that he told me he had a migraine, then he slept for long time, I was concerned, Sunday, he wasn't feeling good and sleeping most of the time. Considering that DH and I,both have asthma and allergy problems, I am doing pretty well, thanks God.

Anyway, this weekend, I had some stamping time, yahoo!! Did you remember the owl card I mafe few days ago? Well, I won a Stamp Set from Gina K. Desings!! I chose Year of Flowers, Awesome, so I decided to participate in the Challenges posted on SCS.
