*Beautiful Sunday*

Good morning all...  going to be a beautiful (albeit kinda windy) day today....  temperatures up in the teens (in Celcius) which means I will have my sandals on!  I love days I can wear sandals!

I had a great time with the CalGals on Friday night.  We missed Shannon and Dianne but Tracy, Allison, Merlie and I had a good time together.  I managed to get three cards done on Friday night!  Go me!

After I played with the challenge Allison provided (which I will share in a few days), I played with the current sketch over at Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  I haven't done one of Mercy's sketches in a while so it was fun to play.

This card uses a colour combination that I fell in love with after getting a card from a stamping friend of mine named Irene.  Hers used a gorgeous patterned paper, but I didn't have that... so I had to make my own.  I really like this card....
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum
*Images:  PaperTreyInk Beautiful Blooms; Lizzie Anne Designs Say It In Script
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Pale Blum, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
*Embelllishments:  Stampin' Up! grosgrain ribbon (I didn't have Old Olive so I coloured the white ribbon with an Old Olive marker
*Challenges:  MTSC66

We've had a good weekend... Bruce and I ran some errands yesterday, had dinner with friends last night and then went to another friends' house to watch the UFC Fight (well, the guys watch the event, the girls chat and some of us watch the main event).  Today we are off to a birthday celebration for Bruce's two younger brothers (they are twins).  Matthew has a "jam session" with his band at 3:30 and tonight Bruce and I have bowling.  I also need to fit some laundry in today and tomorrow so that the kids and I are ready to hit the road on Tuesday morning to go see Mom in Regina.

And that, is what's news in my world.

Enjoy your Sunday!
