A Trip to Gillette Stadium

Welcome back to my blog,
Sunday was the Christmas card Bonanza at my house and I wanted to say thank you to the ladies who attended. We had a nice time creating and talking with each other. It's always a pleasure to spend time with them. 

 On another note I went to my first Pats game Friday night at Gillette Stadium. I have never been and it was exciting and lots of fun. It is quite the stadium, it was a beautiful night and the Pats won.! Wohoo! I got to see Tom Brady play for the first part of the game. I would love to do it again some time. It was crowded considering it was a pre season game and we missed the kick off because we were tied up in the security line. It's ridiculous, no pocket books or bags at all, the security guard even took away a nerf football from a child because they weren't allowed to bring it in. I felt sad for the kid, he probably was hoping to get it autographed or something. Couldn't even take water bottles in. Just heads up if you are planning on going to Gillette Stadium this year.

  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day, til next time

Card three and four of Christmas Card Bonanza

 Welcome back,

   After a week of helping my older son get a new used car, I finally got some time for some card making. These two cards we will be making at the Christmas card bonanza that is coming up on Sun, There is still time to sign up if you would like to join us.
    The first card I decided to use up some DSP that retired with this new catalog coming out. This is The Be of Good Cheer DSP. Also the Cherry Cobbler tulle that has retired with this catalog. I combined some of the retired supplies with a brand new one which is the Expression thinlits. I don't usually make these kinds of cards, it is on the busy side but I really wanted to use up the retired paper. 
Stamps: none
Inks: none
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler and Gumball green, and Be Of Good Cheer DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle ,and the thinlit Expressions.
      The next card I cased from Diane on stampin Connection, thanks Diane for your sharing!
Love the colors of this and the fact that it can be used as any occasion pretty much in the Winter as well as a Christmas card.
Stamps: Festive Flurry, and Greetings of the Season
Inks: Pool Party for the big snowflake and Versa mark
Card stock: Whisper White, Pool Party, new DSP paper called Winter Frost Specialty paper and the new Silver foil paper.
Accessories: Big Shot, Festive Flurry framelits, Northern Flurry Embossing folder Silver Embossing Powder, embossing Buddy, heat tool and rhinestones.
        That's it for today trying to get my Christmas Cards started, it's never too early to make Christmas Cards especially when you do this kind of crafting. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed. Have a great day. Til next time!
Happy Stamping:)

An Exciting week for the Family

     Welcome back friends,
It's been quite an exciting week here with the family. 
     About a week ago my younger son K.J and his girlfriend auditioned for American Idol at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. They went back and fourth for two days. The first day was for registration and the next day they auditioned. Got a quick glance at Ryan Seacrest.  Niether one of them made it but they said it was a great experience and they felt good about themselves. It was pure craziness.
     Saturday my husband and I finally got to take a day at the beach. It was a beautiful day. We went to Ogunquit beach in Maine. We ate at a restaurant called Jackie's too and got to sit right by the water, it was soo relaxing. We walked the marginal Way which always seems to amaze me at the scenery along it. Sooo beautiful.
     We ended this wonderful week with a play off game that my older son Paddy was playing in. It was for the championship. It was an exciting game with a pitcher's duel and a tied score of 1-1 up to the 7th inning and then they had to go into extra innings, talk about stressful, finally at the bottom of the nineth the Lunenburg Phillies which my son plays on, scored the winning run. Both teams worked very hard and both teams really wanted it they proved that, unfortunately only one team can win. Congrats to  the Lunenburg Phillies!
       Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Have a great evening, til next time!
