Wheww! Lots to share tonight! First here is a couple pics for you. The pics are of my project for Art Bytes at The Stamp Art Shoppe. Sandy is celebrating her anniversary of the store by hosting these fun mini classes. Mine is an accordion card for the holidays. You can put at least 3 pictures in it and write a little note or two to special family and friends. It is great for families to share pics and catch up. It will fit in a regular A2 envelope although you might need extra postage to mail it. I will be teaching two classes on Saturday November 7th one at 2 and one at 3. I hope you can join me for one! The classes are under $15 and will be 45 minutes or less.

Call Sandy at Stamp Art to sign up (916) 773-4378. You can also check out the website for more info on other classes. There are so many to choose from! They are filling up really fast so don't delay if you think you are interested.
Okay, enough business. My Varsity football guys are undefeated! 7-0 and they were televised on Comcast Sportsnet last week! It was a nail-biter! Tomorrow we play Oakmont at home and it should be a good game as well. Go Thunder! Our dinner went well last week. I think the boys enjoyed the enchiladas and the treats we made for them. I couldn't resist making a little candy holder to cheer them on to beat one of their rivals! They really appreciate those little things. My son told me that he had an awesome dinner this week as well - lasagne and garlic bread! Mmmm! Wish I was there!
Well, I must say goodnight. It has been a long hard week and I must rest so I can be at my cheering best for tomorrow's game!

Pretty Papillon

Fall is most certainly here today! We have been hit with a huge storm! Unusual for us this time of year to have one so big! We have received over 2" of rain in our area! It has been a wee bit chilly at night and in the morning, but nice during the day until yesterday. The house felt sooo dark today while it was storming. It makes me want to turn on all the lights!

Okay so my dear friend, hosts a "Paper Play" group at her house once a month where my friends and I go to make cards and other projects. Last month she gave us a beautiful napkin and challenged us to use it on a card. The colors were so neutral and beautiful! I love how mine came out! I started out with a general idea of where I might put the napkin down and that was it. I was sure it would turn out lame. But I have to say once I got the papers down something kicks in and ideas just came to me! Note to self: Trust yourself! I love the new Rock Candy Distress Stickles that I used on the butterfly. So yummy! Enjoy the photo!

On a more personal note... We are heading in to week #6 of football season and we start our league games this week. I am very excited because we are 5-0 and our offense looks unstoppable! We have scored over 40 points every game! Go Thunder! Next week we host all 65 players and coaches at our home and with the help of four other families we will feed this brood! We are playing one of our rivals - Granite Bay. Wish me luck! I may be a bit quiet until that is behind me!

Well it is time to hit the hay and catch up on some missed sleep. I hope your week is filled with lots of stamping and paper crafting! I know mine will be!
