Sunday - Where Did it Go

Why does the week end always go so fast - here it is almost 5 p.m. - and I have not accomplished anything yet. No - I did get groceries - I did laundry yesterday so I think (think) I have clothes to wear to work tomorrow. Funny weather here - it has been summerlike so hard to wear a sweater to work. It is suppose to cool down this week - have to dig out the light weight sweaters.
I went to a rugby game yesterday to watch my nephew play - I know absolutely nothing about rugby - I still know nothing about rugby but I am amazed no one was hauled off the field dead or broken. A little further down the field were teams playing LaCrosse - another game I know nothing about. But hey - what about those Brewers - yeah - thank you Marlins for beating the Mets. Not so good news for the Packers.
Did some paper playing this week end. I have many birthdays in October so trying to get this started. I try to send my Mom a card every day of her birthday week so that means Saturday I need to put my first card in the mail. I guess I had better be productive this week. Maybe I will just do every sketch that comes along.
Speaking of sketches - this card is from the sketch posted on Card Positioning System. I flipped it on its side. I am also going to use it for the challenge on Creative Corner - which is Colored Stitching - I do believe brown thread qualifies for that.
Doily - was white - but I dipped it in some coffee to give it a creamier color
Paper - October Afternoon
Twine - May Art
Rub On - Crate Paper
Big Cream flower - Bazzill
other flowers - Sizzix die cuts
Buttons - from the button stash
Everyone enjoy your week - I do hope I am back with more creations this week.
For some fun - I participate in a small card forum - the community is very creative and a wonderful online family. We are celebrating our first anniversary starting this week - we have a month of fun activities planned - please stop by Cococat's Cardmaking - share your creativity and become a part of our family.
