This week is zipping by and before I know it, Friday afternoon will arrive to see us heading off to visit my family for FOUR days (we have Monday and Tuesday off - a wee 'fall break' from school added on to Remembrance Day)! Call me excited!
My husband will be racing the last two cyclo-cross events of the season on Saturday and Sunday, so hopefully, a bundled up niece and nephew will join their mega-bundled up Aunty C (should have seen me last weekend. I was a fashion statement indeed...of what not to wear, but I was much warmed than the cyclists sporting their racing kit. Snow and spandex...yeah, no) to cheer him on. I'm hoping to get a bit of shopping in (sweaters...I need sweaters!), and then spend most of Sunday helping my mom with a family supper preparations to celebrate by brother's birthday (from October) and my husband's (on Sunday). Of course, having Ms. T and Mr. C joining us is a 'must'!
I've been crafting mightily, any minute I can, to get cards ready for the Christmas Bazaar at the seniors' residence where my mom volunteers. A few are ready to go, then once back home, I'll be working frantically to get them ready for shipping (my husband will be the delivery man, as he has a meeting in Edmonton) on Dec. 2, in time for the Dec. 6 event. Cards, and the Advent Countdown for my niece and nephew, will be my focus, soooooo...hope I don't bore you to tears with the abundance of Christmas you'll see for the next bit.
Today, three cards to share. The first two are heading to CAS(E) this Sketch #98
and this one, as well as the one below, are off to City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #236~My Deer
Although I didn't get my reindeer cards done in time, I was inspired by MUSE #91, where the talented, creative Michele, invited us to use designer paper to make a set of three cards; same theme, different formats. I do have a third, but it's a 'little secret' for now. I'll be following her suggestion as I continue with my Christmas-only diet (and maybe three will become fours, or fives...).
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
