Fun Weekend!

We enjoyed a fun weekend - that was badly needed! Rest, fun and some "down time" - along with yard work and the weekly laundry!

Friday night, the whole family enjoyed the Childress Production of "Wizard of OZ" - WOW! What talent we have in our small town! Here's a link here to get more info! Each member of the cast and crew did a superb job - making a great show for all to enjoy! We recommend it to anyone thinking of going!

Saturday was our 3rd annual 4-H Family Fun Day - we had face painting, a pumpkin walk, horse shoes, Red-neck golf, a fishing booth and a lunch of Nachos - all for FREE! Giving back to the community - was the objective. This year we had fewer attend, but we still had a great time! Here are the boys with their pumpkins!

Also attended Aric's last flag football game - here's a pic of their #1 fan - the "ging" along with her posters! She made two posters to cheer on the team! Sam the Coach did awesome with his group of kids (4th-6th graders). We had a great time watching this organization play. The Steelers had a great season - next year, he'll be playing as a CJHS Bobkitten! Argh!

Here are some card challenges that I was able to complete also!

"Baby Girl" for the
Requirement is to use copic markers and create a card for a baby!

I used some pastel print designer paper scraps, hearts, pink ribbon, pink rhinestone bligs on a white base card. SU's "Happy New Baby" stamp - coloring with RV21 & Y08 copics.

The next challenge is a "Case a DT" on the StampTV Free For All Friday Challenge -
Cat wanted everyone to "case" one of Donna Baker's card projects and add their own twist to their
project. This challenge was intimidating because Donna B. is awesome. Here's her project to the left.
Mine on the right... My "twist" included the same GinaK Design stamps - but paper pieced it, used designer paper and card stock from the "Falling For You" stamptv kit - embellished with hemp twine and gold dots.

Next card is for a challenge sketch at The Sweet Stop Blog SSS #31 Challenge that is using sketch #69.
The sketch is to the right - and my entry is to the left. The other requirement is to use PINK - for Breast Cancer Awareness. Used some digital paper "Neapolitan" from Gina K Design in the freebie section, a HOPE metal medallion, pink ribbon, pink rhinestone, pink & sand cs along with white!

The last card project is SNOW for the Anything Goes Challenge
I've been stuck on red, black and turquoise for a couple of weeks now in a color scheme! It works well together - The requirement is to use "Lettering" in the design of the card. SNOW is my word of lettering (cut with a/cricut) along with red and turquoise snowflakes stamps & color scheme. Cuttlebug "Snowflake" folder used for the embossed background - "Let It Snow" GinaK Design stamp, glitter, and black ribbon.

We have a 10% chance Wednesday night for Snow - LOL! Yeah, right...

Hope you had a FUN WEEKEND also! Thanks for stopping by! Remember to hug the ones you love the most - until next time...
