*Ya, Not So Much*

Happy Saturday morning!  I'm not sure where our sunshine went, but at least it's warmer than a week ago and the snow is melting.  We received more snow in two days than we would usually see for the entire month of October!  It's way too early for snowpants and winter boots!

I am hoping that there are still some flip flop days in our future!

Had a good time with the CalGals (see the sidebar) last night.  Plans changed relatively last minute as Shannon just got back from Regina, her hubby just got home from a long business trip and Shannon ended up with a nasty cold as well...  so we met at my house again instead of moving to Shannon's to make life easier on baby Hailey (and Mommy!).  We ordered pizza and had a great night of crafting.

I managed to make 3 cards plus the first of 6 identical calendar pages for a calendar we CalGals are putting together for ourselves.  I will share my CalGal challenge (provided by Diane) tomorrow.

For today, you get to see my take of this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches (#15).  (the link for their blog is in my sidebar)

I am not at all in love with this card.  I love the teal with the cocoa colour, but that's about it.  There is just nothing that screams at me with this card.  I might have to try the sketch again this weekend if I find the time...

Items Used:  
*Sketch:  Tuesday Morning Sketches #15
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla, Taken With Teal, Close to Cocoa
*Images:  Stampendous
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Close to Cocoa classic and Taken With Teal marker
*Tools:  Big Shot; Sizzix Embossing Folder; Stampin' Up! 1 1/4" square punch

Yup, just not pleased with this one at all....
