busy weekend

I spent the majority of my day on friday cleaning out my mess. I have admitted here before that I'm very messy about my creative space. I achieved my goal of a clean room for World Cardmaking Day on Saturday. So, Saturday arrived and I had visions of stamping the entire day away. My family had other plans, they wanted me to go shopping and to the movies and out to lunch. Normally a great thing, but not such great timing. So, I spent the early morning finishing up samples for my class in a couple of weeks to deliver to the shop in the same area as lunch and shopping. It's an altered game pieces class. Here is a pic of the sample board:


We had a nice afternoon out, and I ran to my craft room as soon as we returned. I made a small pile of cards for my friend Lesa's new endeavor. Lesa is a breast cancer survivor who is paying forward the kindness shown to her during her treatments and recovery time. She started Little Life Preservers to send cards of encouragement to women diagnosed with breast cancer and going through treatment. Here are the cards I'm sending to her today:


And in between all of that I won a drive-by prize at Stamptoberfest. It's a mystery set of stamps. I love a little intrigue in the day and winning is always good. The challenges at 2peas are going on all week, so you can still play and so can I.

Our winter wonderland card crop at SNR was a huge success. Lots of beautiful cards were uploaded and lots of happy stampers won prizes. I loved the whole idea of focusing on getting those holiday cards rolling. Stop by and stroll the gallery for some inspiration on your holiday cards. My new favorite holiday color theme is light blue and kraft tan because of a fun color challenge we hosted. Here is my card that I made for that challenge:

All in all a great weekend even if I didn't stamp like I planned. Oh and if you need an action fix check out Eagle Eye at the theaters or Iron Man on video. I loved both movies, but I was exhausted from all the action and holding my breath waiting to see what happened next.

Your weekend sounds really busy but FUN! Look at those great samples for your class- that Elvis card is wonderful! Thanks for the reminder about Lesa. I really need to get some of them done for her too!

Love all your cards!!! The ones you made for Lesa are so cheery and fun! She's gonna love them! My weekends always seem to go the way yours did.....not exactly as planned, and NOT enough time in my stamping room. Oh well. So is life. Looks like you got quite a bit accomplished anyhow!!

You had a seriously busy weekend, didn't you?! I love the 'feeling blue' cards - Bravo to you both!
Thanks for seeing the funny side of me... it's all too rare, sadly!! ;-]

These are both very cool. Love the sentiment on your "get well" cards. That Blue Christmas card is just too kitschy!
