Nice & Quiet Weekend...

...the perfect way to describe it! We have been homebodies for the most part, with Josh working for parts of it. We watched the newest "Incredible Hulk" movie with Edward Norton and Liv Tyler on Friday night. We don't pass out candy anymore because our dogs just go nuts whenever the doorbell rings. So, unfortunately...to keep their sanity and OUR sanity, we close up the front and hang out in the back. Here is hoping one day these dogs calm down when the doorbell rings. It was a good movie and we really enjoyed it! On a side note- Friday morning I jabbed myself in the eye accidentally with my mascara brush. My eye hurt ALL day long, and by the time the movie was over- my eye just wanted to be shut. So, we went to bed early in hopes that my eye would feel better in the morning. Lo and behold...it sure did! The human body is truly amazing to me!

Yesterday we watched football (the Griz beat NAU soundly...whoot whoot!), I made some cards, and had fajitas for dinner. Without cheese and sour cream. (We SERIOUSLY need to go to the grocery store.) They were still good though! We set our clocks back...and were wide awake at 7am this morning. Hee hee! Josh has to work today, so I am just hanging out at home. I am going back and forth from my scrap room, to lounging in the family room. Love lazy weekends like this one!

I do have some cards to share with you today! First up, I did Carla's blog challenge to make a transparent card. I did my own thing with the card, but it still follows the premise of her challenge. Be sure to check out the challenge, and Carla's blog for some fabulous inspiration! She is an awesome crafter! (Just an FYI...the second photo is the inside. Transparent cards are not the easiest thing in the world to photograph!)

Well, that is about it for me. I know that some are still waiting on a football post...(wink, wink to my dad), and I will get to it. I haven't even had a chance to edit the photos yet, as I have had other stuff on my plate...and just wanted to actually relax and scrapbook this weekend! I might get to editing them today...we will have to see!

Hope everyone else has had a fabulous weekend!

Sunday came to quickly,

PS: Only two more days until this dang election is over. I will be so happy for it to be done...I SO need a break from political advertising. I haven't gotten one all YEAR LONG!
