Wonderful Saturday...

Wow...the weather today was like a special order day. The sky is clear and beautiful, a bit of a breeze blowing, and about 78 degrees. Absolutely heavenly.

DD, Shirley, and I left here about 10 this a.m. We started out over at Sue B.'s house for a fun hour of Stampin' Up Open House festivities. We shopped the retired table, placed our orders, and headed down the highway to O'Dear's, a super scrapbook shop, and picked up some things we needed there. Last on our agenda was a trip out to God's country (really!!!), where we went to one of the local wineries that was having an art show. A lady that used to work with me, and stamp with Shirley and I had a display of her paintings and jewelry there today. We went mainly to support her! The views off the back deck of this winery were breathtaking, and the weather delightful! Sigh....all too soon, it was back to the real world where we could do some 'chores'....

When we got home, DD and I had yesterday's leftovers for lunch. She had fixed us homemade salsa, black beans, cheese, and whole wheat chips. Oh my goodness, it was delish!!!

I checked out the challenges, and came up with the quick card above to meet three of them:

365 Cards challenge was all about layering. We were to "layer" our stamps!

The challenge at Papercutz was to use something on our creation that "flies"!

And...the Lots to do challenge was to "use paper on our creations"!

Oh, baby - these were great for me! I reached right for my TAC Script Background stamp and the Beautiful Day set, and voila! The stamping was done with Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Peeled Paint, and Old Paper. Stamped on K & Co. CS., onto DCWV CS.

Now, it's back to my announcements! Hope your Saturday is as wonderful as mine has been! My DH and DS are hitting yet a third Cardinal game tonight, again in San Diego. I hope my beloved "Birds" do better tonight!
