What A Fine Weekend!

The weather was just beutiful here in Thunder Bay, ON. We had dinner at the waterfront on Friday evening where we sat in the shade, looking out over the harbour admiring all the lovely sailboats and power boats anchored there. The breeze from the lake was like a whisper and just enough to be comfortable. Pure magic.
The remainder of the weekend was spent in "relax" mode, which for me, includes plenty of time for crafting. Not only did I complete several cards, but I did some reorganizing. I separated my stack of patterned into groups, ie. Christmas, Halloween, Baby, Toddler, Masculine, etc. so it would be easier to find. Then, I made labels for the spines of my CD cases which hold my unmounted stamps. At last count, I have about 75 - 80 cases. Thank goodness they're clear; easier to camouflage that way so DH doesn't see them all in one huge stack! I was surprised so I can't imagine what his reaction would be.

Now, it's time to resume the Bingo game. There were plenty of submissions this weekend and today I'm happy to say we have nine (9) numbers to call. Get your cards ready, ladies, here we go:

G49 Saturday number
I17 Sunday number

B11 (courtesy of Heather)
I21 (courtesy of Tami)

Thank you, ladies, for your cards. It makes the game so much fun.

I'm going to throw in a colour challenge now. Make any card you like using the following colours: green, pink, brown. Here's a card I made using these colours.


The specific colours in this card are Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive, but you don't have to use SU colours. And, remember, the sketches are still in play as well.

Good Luck and have a great day!

Love the butterflies, Barb, and the "squiggly/doodle-like" background each rests on. A beautiful card (also like the vertical dimension). Great color challenge; a lot of awesome cards will come from it, I'm sure. Glad you had a great weekend; it sounded relaxing and productive (and reminded me that I should organize my patterned paper).

Okay...I hope someone benefited from all the those numbers, because I got ZERO...I guess that means I should do better on the next draw! Great card Barb...I also love that BG stamp behind the butterflies :)
