I'll also be officiating at a cyclo-cross race on Saturday; my husband has just returned from a three day epic bike trip, so he won't be officiating at all, but plans to race on Sunday, energy-level depending. A belated birthday celebration for my mom is on for Saturday evening. Ms. T has a 'surprise party' totally planned (even though it's at my parents' place...): she and I are in charge of the cake (she's going to teach me how to use sprinkles), and everyone else - Mr. C, her mom and dad, Grammy and Grampy, Poppa (my dad) and Uncle Andy (my sister and bil are on holidays) are in charge of balloons. Of course they are! If Bacia (my mom) happens to 'see' us getting things ready, we're supposed to run, hide (not sure where, although behind the drapes might work...), then jump out and shout "SURPRISE!!"
Sounds like an easy-to-excute plan to me...I'll be sure to zip away from the bike race as soon possible, so as not to miss my cake-decorating tutoring.
In the midst of giddy excitement, I've made a card using some NBUS: Merry Dots, by Memory Box and my first EVER My Favourite Things (sorry...Favorites is spelled wrong...must upkeep my Canadian spelling *grin*) die-namics die, Dispersed Dots. Headed down the Christmas card route, creating a card for Merry Monday#127~Bingo Game, using the first column of 'sparkle, die cut and red',
"Mental gymnastics" required for the tag; I'm sure an easier way exists! The red is my shimmery Joy paper, as is the grey of the snowflakes and background dots; hard to photograph, but in real life, it glimmers prettily.
Since no stamps were used, I'm heading off to Keep it Simple #49~No Stamps
I'm also joining Marina's My Perfect Life Festive 48-Week 37 blog...so far I have three Christmas cards as compared to her 37! Better get crackin'...
Off to do some packing...
