ok....so one of my FAV races to watch....BRISTOL!!! So, i ran all my errands this morning, put dinner in the crockpot and settled in for some racing! Well....less than halfway in...my day was rained on....sort of. Mikey had a tire go down and had to pit under green. So...that helped him get 2 laps down i think....then there was some sort of lug nut problem with the pit...so back for round 2 of green flag stops...THEN...i hear something about a speeding penalty in the pits....so when this is all said and done....i look up to see mikey 5 laps down! At this point, I figure it is un-recoverable, and am bracing to hear on my scanner some UGLINESS. BUT! This is my favorite part...Mikey actually is POSITIVE! He actually thanked his crew for the adjustments they made on the car, and says they will just have to keep on going and hang in there! Holy CRAP! I was SO PROUD to be a Mikey fan at that moment! When the chips were stacked against him...he kept his cool and was positive! Sometimes...that is the way to go! I mean, yes....finishing 32 isnt' the best...but a positive attitude goes a LONG way! We'll get em next week!
Now..on to the cards....LOL...its all about the cards..which i made some while watching the race actually! 3 more to 'unveil' for 365 cards! I actually am very excited about todays sketch (day 22). I used a set I have had for along time and haven't used yet. It is called Make it Count, by Close to my Heart, and has clocks! Not sure why I haven't used it yet, but I got it out the other night and SWORE I was going to use it....and this sketch was perfect! It helped that DT member Gloria used it as well for the sketch....just the push I needed! thanks!!!!!
My next card is for Day 5: thankful thursday. This is a card that is supposed to be easy to reproduce! I used another ctmh set..but this one, well....i use it ALOT, because it ROCKS! It was septembers stamp of the month last year, 'treasure life' and i'm PRAYING it makes anotehr appearance in the catalogue this year, it is fabulous!
Last but not least, well...maybe it is least, as it didn't come out how i pictured it..LOL! This is for Day 4: ad inspired challenge. I was inspired by the colors and the tall flowers. Like I said, this isn't how I envisioned it...but....here it is!!!
Now...off to make some more cards!!! Have a great week everyone!
