Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hi there!  Today would be a fun day to have some Mexican food (and margaritas) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  I will refrain in hopes to get caught up on things around here after spending five days at an out of town retreat with friends.  It's always great to reconnect with these ladies at our retreats.  We do whatever - scrapbook, make cards, watch movies, TALK (really? a room full of women talk? lol), laugh a LOT, eat a LOT, enjoy nature and the occasional wildlife (we saw five deer this time!).  We are there to have a relaxing, good time... and maybe complete some projects.  This year marks our 11th year of these girls getaway retreats!  Originally our getaways started out just twice a year for the weekend.  Now we go quarterly for 4-5 days.  Each person (or team of two - depending on the number of ladies we have attending) is responsible for either a lunch or a dinner meal - preparation and clean up.  (Everyone is on their own for breakfast.)  This system works well for us.  The best part is that you only have to cook once and the meals are awesome!  We have some great cooks.
So between the power outage due to the recent storm, the retreat, and spending time with our granddaughter (had to see her when I got back!), blogging has been nil.  I hope to get back on track...whatever that may be! lol 

I'll be posting photos of projects that were either forgotten or didn't have time to post.  To begin, the following card was made for a friend from the retired Stampin' Up! set "Crab & Co".  Isn't that little crab just the cutest?  Too bad it's retired.

Stamps: Crab & Co
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Pacific Point
Ink: Black
