Winter in Wisconsin....

Wow - let me tell you something: winter in Wisconsin can be a real booger. It was 65 degrees on Tuesday afternoon....IN MARCH....and the snow was melting rapidly. Talk about puddles! We had some big ones. Last night (Thursday) we got about half an inch of snow. This is crazy country we live in.

To top it Christmas Cactus is blooming. It has fuschia blooms, and is it ever pretty. So, to commemorate the occasion, I took a couple of pictures. My friend Peggy (SmallPigPig for you SCSers) is having a photo contest on HER BLOG to win some Blog Candy. The Contest is to take pictures representing spring. I took the Christmas Cactus outside on the deck, and this is what I came up with. I'm not a photographer, by any means, but at least I gave it a shot -- HAH!! PUN INTENDED!!!

I hope you have a great weekend. I have a Stampin' Up! workshop on Saturday. The hostess is expecting 24 people. SO, I am off to create cards for that. Catch ya later, dude!!
