In the Mood …

… for a sketch (Get Sketchy’s GS#66) and another Christmas card. Peace on Earth_Nov 2010

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and New England Ivy cardstock; Mistletoe Level 2 paper packet; New England Ivy and Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distressing Ink stamp pads; Peace on Earth stamp set; Gold mini brads; Red Sparkles; Piercing tool; Stampin’ Up Piercing Guide & Mat; Martha Stewart Snowflake punch; Stampin’ Up Metallic Gold Cord; Sponge distressing tool.

A Slice of Life: I found out today what it is I want/need for Christmas – a sled with shock absorbers. This afternoon Marv and I joined Cam, Sarah, and the boys at the sliding hill behind the National Guard Armory. My intention was to take some photos, which I did, capturing smiles so bright you can almost hear the giggles that went with them. Then, someone suggested I take a trip down the hill. Lacking the common sense of most people my age and still wanting to be part of the fun, I selected a lime green saucer as my vehicle of choice. Once I was in the sitting, cross-legged position required to ride on that small, concave plate, Marv gave me a push, and I was off, flying (literally at times) down the hill. Great fun. Tonight, however, I have a kink in my back representative of every bump I encountered, which were numerous in quantity. But really, what did I expect? Providing I can walk tomorrow, it was worth it. LOL.

That was my excitement for the day. Are you all geared up for the coming week? After four days off, I am ready to go back to work. I hope you had a great Sunday, and I’ll be “seeing” you again soon. Thanks for stopping by.
