We are sponsored this month by the inimitable Vera Lane Studio, home to really quirky images. Our randomly-selected participant will win one set of images. I used mine last week, and they were really fun to color. So be sure to get your entry in!
This week I chose a Make It Crafty image for my Christmas card. It is called Christmas Eve Countdown. He is an odd Santa, but perfect for a CAS card. I printed him on X-Press It BC and colored him with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Trim/Hair: T0, T1, T2, T4
Suit: B34, B37, B39
Chimney: E08, E09, E18, T1, T4
Belt/Boots: T2, T4, T6, T8
Goggles/Ascot/Sack: T2, T4, T6, T8, YG41, YG45
Watch/Buttons: T2, T4, T6, YG41, YG45
I added a bit of DecoArt Glistening Snow Writer, MFT Fishtail Flags Stax die cuts, and Tim Holtz tiny staples. My DP is from the Docrafts Christmas in the Country collection; my CS is from Stampin' Up. And my fun sentiment is from Create with TLC.
NFL update: we went to the 49ers/Cardinals game on Sunday. So. Much. Fun. OMG! Can you tell we won? Yup, and our little section in the rafters was very happy at the end. I will say, you really get your money's worth if you attend a Cardinals game these days. We are 3-0 right now and are having a bye week. Which is a really good thing, as several of our players are already banged up. They need the time to heal up. And the Cards head to Denver for their next game. Gary wanted to go up there for the game, but I really didn't. So we will watch from home and go to the next home game on October 5th. That gives me time to recover my voice, doncha know. (I am still one of the main screamers in my section. And I wear ear plugs so I can't hear myself. Hardeharhar. I do feel a wee bit sorry for the peeps around me, but they could wear ear plugs, too. So there.)
Things are moving very slowly on the pool front. But at least we got a really good appraisal and we passed our termite inspection. Yay! Still have not picked a pool builder, but are narrowing the selection down. We are currently looking at travertine pavers in lieu of acrylic lace decking. Of course, that's another luxury that we may not opt for. Will post here when we have decided on the main features, other than water, which is seems a bit necessary.
I have almost finished book seven of the Outlander series. I think I will settle down a bit after I finish it. Maybe not read for a week or two. Hmmmmm, so says the addict. Best laid plans and all that. I only have a bazillion books downloaded to my tablet--I keep getting the free ones. I think I have become an ebook collector. But at least they don't take up space in my house or need dusting. There is that.
Hope you all check out the fabulous creations by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, Kathi, and Laine. And then play along with us--easy peasy with an AG challenge! Looking forward to what you create!
We are headed to our older granddaughter's track meet tomorrow. She is doing so well in distance running, and it has been really good for her! Go, Kelsey!!! Then Gary will finish out the Diamondbacks season tickets on Saturday and Sunday with his friends. And I get to do whatever I want. Wonder what kind of trouble I can get myself into...
Have a wonderful weekend!
