1. Okay, I always know we are approaching the end of summer
when it's time for our town's annual Corn & Apple Festival
Sage and I took Lucy for a walk yesterday afternoon and watched
as Stephen Street was being set up for the fun and exciting weekend.
We'll be enjoying the rides, food, parade and running into friends all weekend long!
2. So, my week started off with this fabulous news on Monday:
I was the grand prize winner of the third session of Camp Create at MFT stamps!
I still can't believe it!
Since Sage participated along with me, she gets to pick out a set of stamps
(& then maybe she won't grumble so much about my collection -- LOL!)
3. I got my haircut on Wednesday:
She cut off quite a bit and I'm loving it!
A nice, fresh cut for fall.
Sage took this photo of me and I returned the favour:
Isn't she lovely?
And look at that tan -- she spent a lot of the summer in the sun!
4. I mentioned earlier this summer that I was playing slo-pitch
(& then keeping score when I sprained my wrist).
Well, for the past two Wednesdays, I also got to do some umping.
That's me in the white hoodie.
Sage took the photo -- she sat in the stands reading her book while I umped.
And she got this action shot of me displaying my catlike reflexes as
I got out of the way of the runner. ;)
In other sporting news.... I was asked by my instructor
last night at taekwondo to become Assistant Instructor for our club!
5. And lastly, because I love sharing my cards on my blog...
A friend recently requested some thank you cards and
said she loved feathers, so I made her four of these cards,
using my MISTI and the ColourQ Challenge #356:
Here's my card:
I stamped the feathers from PTI's Feather Finery using Altenew Coral Berry,
MFT Plum, PTI Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse & Ripe Avocado.
I stamped the sentiment using a Simon Says Stamp stamp set.
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for looking!
