2 Sketches 4 U, Week 3

For some reason, my immediate thoughts went to Christmas when I saw the sketch for this week at 2 Sketches 4 U. I think it is because I have tons of these sweet vintage images from Crafty Secrets, and they worked perfectly with the sketch! Here is a link to the sketch for this week...be sure to check it out!

So, I got this card done last night, while having an 80's dance party in my scrap room (tee hee hee CPS girls...you SO know what I am talking about here!). Did you know that on the 80's channel on XM radio they air past Top 40's with Casey Casum? Well, last night they aired the show from 6/28/1986- it was awesome. I may have only been 6 in 1986, but I had young and hip parents in the 80's. I can so sing along with most of the 80's pop music!

And in keeping theme with more winter oriented holidays, these are some Thanksgiving cards I did for the November Cards Magazine call that didn't get picked up. That's okay...now I already have some cards to send at Thanksgiving time!


So, what do you have planned for the weekend? Tonight I just want to hang out at home. Get some cards done, hang out with the pups....start on laundry, because I have A LOT to get done. Tomorrow I want to go shopping for a few new summery skirts and tops to wear to work. Now that we are finally having summer weather! :) I have church at 7pm, and then I want to book it up to Evaro to watch a firework show that I was invited to by a co-worker, and her husband is the one putting on the big show. In Montana you can buy fireworks and light them outside of city limits, so we get fireworks stands all over the place. One of the biggest stands is in Evaro, and before the big fireworks show on Saturday they are going to give the viewers a preview of the different types they can buy. And then we get the big show. I love to watch fireworks, not light them...so I always love to see a show! No plans for Sunday, except some house cleaning, and hopefully some time on the back deck in the sun!

Have a totally rad Friday (sorry...still basking in an 80's glow from last night),
