Catalog Inspiration

Good Monday morning, Friends! I am guessing that the working people have today off, too? I have heard that since the holiday fell on a Sunday, then Monday is considered a holiday as well to give people a day off. So if you get another day off today, congratulations! I know that my dad does. And I have heard of others. All the days sort of run together for me during the summer since I don't need to keep track of that anymore. Well, today is our first game of the All Star tournament! We are all meeting this afternoon at the ball fields to decorate our cars and then caravan over to Montrose for our first game at 5:30. The coach gave the boys a curfew of 10:00 p.m. this weekend. We only missed it by 30 minutes. But he will sleep in and I think it will be fine. Wish them luck! And the weather will be a little cooler. Yea!!

Today's card was inspired by the new catalog. I used the Halloween card on page 24 to help inspire this one. It's not my favorite. It didn't turn out quite like I had envisioned. My friends and I were talking about the new catalog and how we really hadn't found any cards to "CASE". And my friend Sherry said that she was waiting for Deb to do something. Well, I took that as a personal challenge to try and come up with something to "CASE" from the catalog. I did make a few this weekend. This was my first one. One that I came up with is going to be my convention swap so you won't get to see that for a few more weeks. But I have been happy with the others. Thanks for the challenge, Sherry!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
