Lovin your polka dot project Lisa!! you know I'm over the moon for the little round ones myself,but alas I have no paper smooches to play I'll just thoroughly enjoy yours! If I don't get a hair cut soon, I think they'll send out the national guard for that strange fuzzy creature in Ohio LOL!! I go every 4-5 week and it's been almost 8 ~YIKES!!!

Hey, Lisa! Remember how you said you hadn't gotten enough snow last week? Well I think I found your missing snow! We are under a blizzard warning to start tomorrow and it looks like we could get 18 to 24 inches! Jealous? I'm not sure I want all that all together at once! Anyway love love your polkadot card. This is so sweet :-)
