I am in shape....Round is a shape!

At 3:30 this afternoon I decided to do the CAS challenge. thumping is not something I am particularly keen on, but I did it anyway. Of course the bg I chose to do it on doesn't show it up at all, so you'll have to take my word for it. I have had this image for a long time, and finally inked it to go with the sentiment that I think is funny. The silverware is actually silver, and I can tell she's a lot like me, except for the curly hair. I am always ready to have food put in front of me!!! I think I will send this off in the morning to my Mom, who will get a kick out of it. She didn't join us this weekend to see the grands, and she's probably feeling a little alone. A card should perk her up. When she gets one, she calls right away, and we have a chat about it. That's it for me. Seeya tomorrow.

Happy Snowman

I just love this snowman image from Holly Berry House!! He's so jolly! Even though he's a pain in the **** to color, I always love the results. Today he is bright with markers, and the RED really makes a statement, don't you think??? I had fun doing the new Easel Card technique, and it's so easy, I'm sure I'll make more of them. I'm getting a good dent in the number of Christmas cards I need to make.......when we go to NH in November, that's the only stuff I'll take with me.
We had a wonderful day yesterday, watching three of our grandchildren perform. John and Tommy play Pop Warner Football. The day was bright and sunny, but chilly with a pretty good wind. At eight and nine, they are so cute in their football pads and helmets with these little bottoms in spandex pants! DH took lots of pictures. I'll have to post those later. Granddaughter Erin, who is 12, had a cheerleading competition at Assumption College in Worcester. It was fascinating to see what these girls can do! Her team got a first place Trophy!! It was in the gym, so it was pretty loud (and so was the guy I was sitting next to!!!), but I could see everything!! Such fun!!

Today is R & R time. It's chilly here, leaves are changing quickly, and I dread the winter ahead. I think I'll just focus on today. Have a great one, and thanks for joining me here. Hugs.
