*Everyone Is Healthy...*

... at least for now.  Alex went back to school this morning.  He's still a little tired, but otherwise he seems to be doing well.  I wonder how long until the next one of us gets it?

I was watching the morning news on Global Calgary this morning and they had a reporter and camera out in front of the H1N1 Clinic that is in the NW quadrant of the city...  I thought I saw someone I recognized, so I hit rewind (I LOVE the PVR and the pause and rewind live TV feature!)...  Yup, pretty sure that it's my friend Bonnie's son... so I called her on her cell phone and yup, she is there with her son and Mom (Dad couldn't take the time off work today and the daughter is home sick).  After I got off the phone, I pressed play again and ended up rewinding a few times again... just a couple of people behind Bonnie is another Mom I know from the neighbourhood, and a few people behind her was Bruce's cousin's husband and their daughter.  I know Merlie took the girls yesterday and waited in line for 6 hours to get their shots.

I am looking forward to a day alone in the house...  cuz I've said that, I've probably jinxed myself and Matthew will call later this morning saying he's sick.  He was fine this morning, but it will be just my luck LOL!

I did some crafting yesterday afternoon which was awesome.  I finished off two challenge cards from the last few days.

This is the card I created for Mojo110, and it happens to use the colours for an SCS Colour Challenge.  It was hard to use only coloured cardstock instead of patterned paper on this card...  I thought, at least in my opinion, that there was a lot going on to be adding pattern to it.  Instead I have a lot of white space.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo
*Images:  Stampin' Up! Best Yet; Verve Floral Whimsy
*Ink:  Memento black
*Tools:  Big Shot; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder; Nestabilities
*Embellishments:  ribbon from Michaels; Bling (in the centres of the flowers)
*Challenges:  Mojo110; SCS CC234

During the dinnertime news last night, they were reporting that there was a "special weather statement" for the City of Calgary... a possibility of 5-10 cms of snow overnight.  Sigh...  Thankfully we woke up to a dusting of snow in the grass and wet (and probably slippery) streets.  No 5-10cms.  (that's about 2-4 inches).  It's still too early for snow!  I think all parents hope it holds off until after Halloween!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Pretty card. I love the white space, it makes all the other elements of the card really stand out!

Glad Alex is feeling better. Merlie is crazy to wait 6 hrs...not me. Still haven't decided if we are getting any shots. But I am not doing it anytime soon...those line ups are crazy!! :0)
