Saturdays are my favorite

Happy Saturday to you. I love the weekends. Spending time with my boys is something I look forward to every week. Especially now that football takes up most of the day. We are a football loving family. I'm not really happy that my oldest is now a Crimson Tide fan but it does give it some excitement. Maybe my youngest will decide he wants to be a Gator fan with his Mama. We shall see.

Last night had a bit of drama to it. Caleb (my oldest) went to a Friday fun night with his friends. It's held at a gymnasium and they have inflatable slides along with all the gym equipment. Chris, Noah, and I went to Panera for dinner and then we were headed to Michaels. Yes, I have a husband that will willingly go to that store with me. I am a lucky girl. Unfortunately, as soon as we pulled in the parking lot my phone rang telling me that Caleb had been hurt. He had fallen off the slide and landed on his arms. I was bummed that I was so close to Michaels but my first priority was making sure he was okay.

After picking him up and calling our on-call nurse line through our insurance we made sure that he was pampered. I'm thinking he forgot about his pain once we administered Motrin, ice pack and some TLC. Dad even bought him some chocolate glazed doughnuts to help him push through the pain. His brother was also by his side to make him feel better.

I couldn't get Noah to actually look at the camera and smile. He would do it for a split second and then look away. He ended up thinking it was a game which was funny. The picture really was about Caleb.

After I got him settled and Noah in bed, I decided to take a few hours to do some crafting. I found the mother load of challenge blogs and wanted to try and complete as many as possible. It has been so much fun!!

The challenge that I participated in this time was with Pals Paper Arts and the sketch looked like this:

There were not specific colors that I had to be used but since I am in the Fall mood I continue to lean toward my Sweater Weather DSP. I also continue to find myself using Gorgeous Grunge as my go to stamp set. Originally when I first saw that set I couldn't see myself ever using it. I was proved wrong!

This is the card I made:

All products used are from Stampin Up with the exception of the sentiment and leaf stamps. Those are from Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday Celebrate Fall set.

Hope this inspired you to make a card yourself. If you have any questions about the products used, just ask. You can also visit my online store at My Stampin World.

You can also get my updates via Facebook, following my blog and receiving email updates all located on the right side of my blog.

Thanks for looking today. Happy Stampin!
