New England vs Pittsburgh

This Sunday the Pats are playing the Steelers. Probably going to be a tough game for them! I am posting about it today because tomorrow I am off to Cleveland. My friends and I are going to watch the Cleveland Browns play the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. We are going a day early to party it up in Cleveland! Should be fun. My first NFL game! Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone! I dont have anything to share right now. I just wanted to pop on here and wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are heading over to my mom's to spend the day there. And I have to be nice to everyone today. Apparently I must be the family complainer. My mom and sister both called me and told me what was for dinner and told me they expected no complaining from me. I guess I admit that I do tend to complain when the whole family gets together. but heck, they get on my nerves sometimes. :) But I will do my best. I hope everyone has a great day!

My Silly Sense of Humor

So recently Ami recently annouced that she was on the design team for Pink Papery Studios. She showed me a card that she made using one of the girls from the Simply Sexy set. I just had to have it! Why? Cause not only are the images cute, I have a silly sense of humor and started thinking of the cards I could make. Ami also had a sentiment set that I borrowed from her so I could make this card. I think its called Twisted Sentiments but I cant remember where its from. I colored the image using my Copics. The saying on the card? It says "Wanna Bone?" Ami thinks I am tacky. :) I think I'm funny. :) Who gets the card? I dont plan on mailing it out to anyone. :) I think it turned out pretty cute!

New England vs The Jets...

Sorry you crafty ladies, you just have to deal with the New England updates too. Some like to see them. :) Well at least one. :) So last Thursday the Patriots played The Jets. They were both fighting for first place in their division. New England in my opinion played a very good game. They came back from a big deficit to tie the game and go into overtime. Unfortunately the Jets won the coin toss and were able to kick a field goal first. So they wont 34-31. I hate sudden death overtime! They should get to play the whole 15 minutes! So that puts The Jets into first place in the AFC East and The Patriots in 2nd. But there is still time for them to take over that position. Lets hope that the jets lose this week and New England wins to put it back into a tie. :)

Is it Tuesday again? Where do the weeks go? Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving? That means the year is almost over!! It also means that I am just a couple weeks away from going to my first NFL game! I am super excited about that. Even though I dont get to see the Pats play. I get to go watch Cleveland and Indy.

Anyway, this week was my turn to come up with the sketch. I was going for simple which I think this was except it took me awhile to come with something for the rectangles. But once I did, it came together pretty good. Dont forget to check out the other template tuesday girls to see what they came up with. Ami, Melinda, and Maria.

Another Christmas Card

I am still trying to figure out what to do this year for my Christmas cards. I made this card using the Snow Swirled set from SU. The cardstock and ink is Poppy Red from PaperTrey. I embossed the tree with glittery red embossing powder. Its a flat card with no lumpy embellishments which makes for easy mailing.

Aura Technique

The challenge on the CTRU yahoo group from November 1st was to make a card using the Aura technique. Pretty much all that is, is you stamp your images and the highlight around them with chalks. Pretty simple thing to do. This is the card I made to send to my partner.

Basketball Season Begins

Chantelle's basketball season started a couple weeks ago and last night was their first game. They played Wyneken. They lost the game 26-15. If they would have played like they wanted it in the first half like they did in the second half they just might have won. But they went into the second have with the score being 19-1 so it was a long shot. But I can say that Chantelle scored that 1 point with her free throw. :) This is her shooting a free throw in the second half.

Template Tuesday

Welcome to Template Tuesday yet again. This week our sketch comes to us from Melinda. She wasnt very pleased with her sketch but I like how my projects came out. I made both a card and a scrapbook page from it. YAY, I made a scrapbook page. Does everyone realize how long its been since I completed one? Well I dont know for sure, but its been a long time!! I decided to use this sketch to start scrapping the pictures from Haley and my Nashville Extravaganza back in April.
Dont forget to check out Ami, Melinda, and Maria's blogs to see what they came up with for the sketch.

Seasons Greetings

So I am still trying to decide what to make for my holiday cards. I saw this idea on SandiMac's gallery on SCS. I loved the elegant look of it so I just had to CASE it. Its a quick, simple, yet elegant card. Plus is flat with no lumpy embellishments so it will be easy to mail. I dont know if I will mass produce these for Christmas but its another idea. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

YAY! They won!

Here ya go Ami!! They won!! 20-10 against the Bills!! That makes them 6 and 3 and tied with the Jets for 1st in the AFC East. Not doing too bad without Brady! And speaking of that man. Where is he? He should be on the side lines rooting them on!

New England Patriots vs The Indianapolis Colts

Well tonight is the annual face off between The New England Patriots and The Indianapolis Colts!! Its a face off that is normally a huge game. Last year boths teams went into this game undefeated. This year is a whole different story. The Pats are 5-2 and the Colts are 3-4. And the game wont be the same without Brady and Manning facing off. And wouldnt you think I would root for the team from my own state? Yeah, no! I thought for sure at the beginning of the year when Brady went out that this game was going to the Colts. But with the way that team has been playing, the Pats have a chance. So GO PATS!! Beat the Colts!
