Enjoying the Weekend!!

Here is a card I made quite a while ago. The flower paper is from a pack from Archivers that they gave us at the last scrap. The back of the paper is peel and stick. Pretty cool, huh! So, did anyone find any real bargains yesterday that was worth getting up at the crack of dawn for? Not me! I was not about to do that and fight the crowds, not to mention the cold at 4 a.m. However, we did go to this cute little town, Geneva, Illinois. It has the best little specialty shops. If you are looking for something different I'm sure you will find it there. The best part of the day was when I came home and all the ourside lights were up. Normally I do that and don't usually look forward to it. So that was a nice surprise. Now off to put up the tree. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Well, here is the first Christmas card of the season I made. As a matter of fact, my friends were over last night and I made 30 of these and 30 of two other cards which I will be posting in the next several days. I made this original card at a Stampin' Diva night get together several weeks ago and I was waiting for now to post it. The little bling I used are just plain clear crystals and I use my markers to color them. Clever, huh! Anyway, now all I have to do is to be sure to send them out. I have become quite a card hog. I tend to make cards and forget to send them out and end up with a ton of cards. So, I vow to send these on their way(soon)! On another note, how was your Thanksgiving? I feel like I could just roll into bed and sleep for the whole winter. I ate enough to hibernate until spring. But I'm sure I'll be hungry (again) in the morning. Today started out with getting up at the crack of dawn and going downtown Chicago, Casey's band was in the Chicago Thanksgiving Day parade. Man was it cold down there! It was a blast though! Once we started marching you forgot how cold you really were. I can't believe the amount of people who also get up early to go see the parade. I sure hope her band does it again next year. So now I am off to bed and getting ready for some fun shopping with my scrappin' friends. Have a wonderful, long weekend and thanks for stopping by!! Gobble, Gobble!!

A picture's worth a thousand words! How true! This picture is of my son and his teammates. Danny is number 44. His team was awesome this year. They didn't lose any games all season, they won their first playoff game and then lost the next playoff game and couldn't play in the championship game. That was a killer. However, the other teams were awesome too. It was his best season yet and being his eigth grade year and last grammar school year to play it was amazing. I really hate football because I don't know a thing about it but I really learned to like it this year. Hopefully he will play in high school and he does want to. As I write this now, he is at a football practice for an all star football game this Friday. His teammates voted for 3 boys to go and represent their team and Danny and number 4 and 20 were voted in. So one more game this weekend and then on to baseball. Anyway, thanks for looking and listening to me brag a little bit. Have a great rest of the week!!!

Howdy, Partner!!

Another great stamp from the TAC company. They have some really cute ones for kids. I used my cuttlebug folder for this one and the Howdy stamp came from a MFT set. So, I hope everyone had a great Halloween. I can't believe the costumes kids wear now a days. Nothing like we did when we were kids (as Casey says, "Back in the Day!") Parents really go all out with the costumes. My favorite one was the cave man. It was a riot!! Anyway, on to Thanksgiving. Casey is marching in the Chicago Thanksgiving day parade, so of course I just had to volunteer to help out. It's so much fun being downtown Chicago at the parade on Thanksgiving day. As long as the weather holds out it should be a blast. Plus, that way I don't have to cook that day. Yippee!! So, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
