Ride done, we stopped at the front desk to check on a couple of items I'd ordered prior to our trip and *fist pump* YES, they'd arrived! Welcomed into my little collection: L'il Inkers (stamp set, connected circle die and chevron die, with more on the shopping list, awaiting the stock to be replenished) and a variety of Paper Smooches stamps - Reflections, Calico and Christmas sentiments (too cute to resist) - and dies - Speech Bubbles and the Power Rays. Tickled pink!!
After some recuperating time (for me, that is), we headed out to shop for a bit. In one of the local bike shops, my husband commented to the lady tallying up his purchases that finding this particular brand of cycling socks in Canada was like finding hen's teeth. She asked where we lived, he told her, and imagine the collective surprise to learn that her daughter lives in Canmore, a competitive cross-country skier! Small world...and side note: the price of his socks reinforces I need to have a whole lot less guilt about buying crafting stuff!
Okay, enough of the travel-diary and on to my card I had a chance to make last evening. It's a bit of a hybrid, drawing inspiration from two designers: Jennifer M, from Day 1, and Julie E, from Day 3 - and the third sketch of Week 2's choices. Bonus: I finally used some paper from a pad that's been sitting idle! Yayyy!!
My card wouldn't stand up properly for its photo shoot, so down it went, with the edge of a cuttlebug plate holding it closed, so you'll see that on the corner, along with a rather shabbily cut edge on one side. Grrr...my little cutter must need new blades. Oh no, that likely means a trip to JoAnns *grin, grin*
(Thanks is from my new L'il Inker set. Cuteness!
Hmmm...I wonder if it needs some different sized ink dots to jazz it up a bit. Seems a bit plain-ish...)
And, a 'something' that I don't often do: a bit of an inside greeting...
Today is Race Day 1 - 74 mile road race starting from and ending at Mt. Bachelor. I'm nervous; my husband is not. Go figure!! He's out there at 1:30, during the heat-iest part of the day. Hope my passing water-bottles to him in the feed zone is in good form!!!
Thanks so much for dropping by; please let me know you did! Your comments add sparkle to my day!
