created by courtney challenge...

Good morning everyone! It is another fun Created by Courtney Challenge day and today Courtney has challenged us with a sketch. I had no idea what I was going to do but I pulled out my new SU! sport sets and got to work.

What I came up with is this fun card to give to one of my four sport loving boys! Okay, three young men and one old man (teehee!). My middle son is in IBA and this might work well if they end up having a good season. This is pretty self explanatory too. The base of the card is PTI's Select White Cardstock, then a Riding Hood Red layer, topped with some My Mind's Eye patterned paper . Four punched circles with accompanying green layers and an all star sentiment finish the card. Very fun, very boy. Love it!

I got a good start on sending out our Christmas cards yesterday. Unfortunately I just don't think I'm going to get them out to everyone that I'd like. I'm not sure what my problem is this year as I usually have my cards out the first week of December.

Todd and I are busy planning for a Christmas party that we are having on the 23rd. I'll be making some Tastefully Simple foods along with mini quiches', yummy meatballs,and a veggie tray. We are anticipating lots of people so it should be fun!

Hope all your Christmas planning is going well! See you tomorrow for Belli Challenge day!

Very cute Lorie! Have fun with planning your party! Our Christmas kicks off on the 23rd as well! That is when my siblings and I go to my parents and we have our Christmas as a family there...seeing how there are so many places to go during Christmas (grandparents, in-laws) so it's a nice relaxing night...with just my family! We love our tradition!

Well, I know which bundle you got! ;) Actually, you probably got all of them, didn't you? hee hee. I didn't get any. :( I was going to get the family one, but it was sold out by the time I decided to order. Ah well. Not like I don't have enough other stamps, ya know?
