So did you all have a wonderful weekend? Mine was really fun, but at the same time, a bit alarming. Alarming because so many Arizona Cardinals got hurt in that horrible preseason abortion, (more commonly known as a loss), that was played Saturday night in Glendale. Oh, my stars, we were so looking forward to being there. We really expected a good game, a win, and lots of highlights. Not. So. Much.
More like a baaaaad game, a loss, and lots of low-lights. Plus, we lost our first-round draft pick for the year due to a broken leg. Ugh. And our new running back got hurt, as well as a wide receiver, a defensive lineman, AND our tight end. At this rate, we won't be able to even field a team after the third week. Preseason can be very deadly. Sigh...
I did have a wonderful time at Distrito on Friday night with our dinner club. Had a really yummy Margarita, some fabulous guacamole, and superb diver scallops. Oh, my. And then I finished my meal with a cup of Mexican hot chocolate. Who needs dessert? That was dessert in liquid form, and the best hot chocolate I have ever had. (If you ever go there, be sure to get the hot chocolate. You won't be sorry.)
We had many laughs, got caught up on the latest happenings with the group, and ate wonderful food. Who could ask for anything more? Well, apparently one of the guys could. He wants to be in a Fantasy Football league this year, so Gary volunteered to set one up for our dinner club. And guess who got roped into joining? Yeah, that would be yours truly.
Gee, whiz, that makes four leagues I am in. Whaaaaaat? How in the heck did that happen? I must be out of my ever-lovin' mind. I don't have time for that many leagues. I won't be making any extra cards this fall, that's for sure! I'll be too busy managing Fantasy Football teams. (Too bad I don't get paid for the time I put in. I could be rich and retire. Wait. I am retired. Never mind.)
Sunday we had our draft for The Deli league. We went to Cogburns, which is basically a neighborhood bar. I expected the food to be "meh", but what I had, (a grilled turkey & avocado on rye sandwich with coleslaw), was really tasty. So there was that. Of course, I didn't get all the players I wanted, because that never happens. But I got a team that looks OK on paper. And, our daughter, SIL and grandgirls were there, too, so it was nice to see all of them.
Hope your weekend was good as well. And now down to business. My card this week is another Christmas card. I chose Bugaboo Candycane Critters Dog as my image, printed it on MICBC, and colored it with my Copics:
Dog: C0, C1, C2, E40, E42, E43, E44, E47
Candycane: C0, C1, C2, R81, R83, R85, R89
I chose sketch #50 from Friday Sketch Challenge for my design.
My DP is from the Memory Box Yuletide collection. It was paired with Stampin' Up CS. My sentiment is from Create with TLC. My die cuts were made with the following dies: Cheery Lynn Christmas Knick Knacks, Whimsy Corner, and LaLa Land Crafts Folding Banner. I added some SU ribbon, a bit of twine, and a charm to finish the card.
Here's wishing each and every one of you a wonderful week ahead. Do stop by and check out the rest of the creations by our DT. And please play along with us. The more, the merrier. (Except in Fantasy Football.)
