*Quiet Weekend*

WOW, what a quiet weekend around here. I didn't do a darn thing that was productive yesterday other than make peanut butter cookies with Matthew after dinner. I didn't craft, I didn't read, I didn't start the laundry... I didn't even leave the house. Why on earth did I bother to get dressed?? LOL!

Again, I felt like crafting... but I sat down at my craft table and did nothing. I just couldn't get in the right mood to put ink to paper. Sad, eh?

I don't know what all today holds, but I do know I will be leaving the house to go to bowling tonight. I'm having a lot of fun being back in a league (it's been 20 years!). I am doing better each week, but of course am no where near where I was 20 years ago. Thanks to all of us improving with each game and our "ringer" Trevor (who consistently bowls 200 or more -- this is 5-pin FYI), our team was in second place after week 2! Woot woot!

I've also been craving apple pie so I might do that today too. And I have the laundry started.

See... I've already accomplished more today than I did yesterday LOL!

On another note... today is Miikka's anniversary! We brought her home a year ago today. She didn't turn into the cuddly cat we had hoped for.... instead she is mischievious and aloof... a true cat. But we still love her...

I finally remembered about the High Hopes stamps I had ordered with the CalGals ... out of sight out of mind in my world. I might have to go back and order some more soon as back in the spring I refused to buy winter stamps! And there were several that I thought were adorable.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black
*Patterned Paper: Upsy Daisy
*Images: High Hopes
*Ink: Memento Black; Copic Spica
*Tools: Big Shot; Nestabilities


I created this card following a SplitcoastStampers Sketch -- SC240

The weather is a lot cooler here in Calgary than it was a week ago... but I refuse to bring out long pants and shoes.... you'll find me in capris, flip flops and a sweater LOL!

I really have to go shopping for some shoes or I'll end up going shopping in the snow with my flip flops on!
