*Happy Saturday!*

I have had a great weekend so far. I had a lot of fun yesterday afternoon with my boss Crystal and her granddaughter Victoria. We went out shopping for food for the Members Only Event happening at the Scrapbook Pantry tonight. Victoria was a lot of fun and I totally loved that she liked me enough to want to hold my hand! I don't get to hold little hands much anymore.

Bruce got home around dinner time last night and surprised me with a new iPhone!! I did a little research on it on my own on Tuesday but couldn't get one on my own as the account is in his name. On Thursday he made excuses as to why I wouldn't be getting one... and then he surprised me last night. He got each of us one. What a neat phone! I have so much to learn.

Last night we spent the evening with some of our closest friends playing cards. We got a late start and then didn't get home until about 1:30am. And then of course I wanted to play with my iPhone some more so I didn't turn out my light until closer to 2am! What on earth was I thinking?

So far today has been pretty light with a trip to the mall to find a case for our iPhones. I am now just chillin' before I get changed, head off to get some photocopies made, and then head to the store for 5pm to start preparing for the festivities tonight.

Tomorrow will be a little less fun as I need to start cutting paper for a Christmas Card class I am teaching at the store on Tuesday morning (and again on the evening of the 25th). This is the first in a series of 3 Christmas Card classes I am doing at the store... in each class we will do 5 different Christmas cards. If customers take all three classes, they will have 15 completed Christmas cards when all is said and down. I have to do up a total of 22 kits for this first class, 5 cards each... for a total of 110 kits. I'm going to have one heck of a sore back I think! I might have to move operations to the kitchen counter.

The card I am sharing with you today is one of the cards from the upcoming class. I found it a little tough to start making Christmas cards in August, but once I got going I did OK. I currently have October's class designed and need to start thinking about cards for November.

All of the patterned papers are by Imaginisce as is the beautiful rub-on sentiment. It's hard to see but there is a beautiful sheer patterned ribbon on the left side of the card.

I am off as the boss just called and wants me early to help out.... have a great evening!
