Well here it is the weekend. Game day in Gainesville and in Jax. The weather is great for all the ball games. You can even feel the festivals coming soon.

"Just Cards" walked in the door for all you ladies that have been patiently waiting.

Next Saturday is National card making day. We will make a card every hour, so sign up early.
The cost will be $1.00 per card. You will buy tickets for how many cards you want to make.

I'll be working my paperwork tomorrow.

Have a great weekend.

Hello Fall!!! It was so wonderful this morning. My temp. gauge on my car read 65 degrees at 8:30 a.m. The cooler weather seems to make everyone feel more festive. You feel like being out and about. The wind rustling the leaves is such a wonderful sound. You need a nice comfy swing and some hot apple cider to sip.

Prissy keeps greeting people as they come in the door. But she really starts the fuss when it is someone who brings her treats. I have to make sure she does not put on too much weight. I think her energy will keep her from plumping up. Frank clipped her nails for me this week. I tried a week ago and the first nail I clipped too close and bless her heart she gave a little squeak. Well that did it for me. I put the clippers away. Frank said next time he would do it by himself because I kept telling him he was going too far back. Boy after that little adventure I had to take a break but Prissy started running around and having so much fun. When she starts running you can not catch her. She is curled up in her little pink bed sound asleep.

Today new magazines from Stampington & Co. arrived. They are the Stampers Sampler, Somerset Workshop, and Somerset Life. Cute altered pumpkins are in Somerset Life. I caught those on a quick breeze through. Yesterday, we received some new leaf punches. There were a couple of those new 3 1/2 inch Giga punches. New stickle colors from Suze Weinberg. These have more "Glitz". Tim Holtz distresser is back on the shelf.

I will post a new recipe later tonight. Ge those favorites turned in so I can post them on the blog.

Today I received the cutest purse from my nephew, niece, and great nieces in Missouri. It has beads, dragonflies and of course ladybugs. I just love it. I will have to give them a call tonight.

Gotta go. See you tomorrow.

Well, here it is Monday and I missed posting this weekend. I was busy yesterday working on all my paper work. We had several wonderful showers throughout the day. Today really started feeling like Fall. I even wore my jeans and long sleeve shirt today, but it did not take long before I was down to my t-shirt.

We received some cute word books today. The words are Gator, Tiger, and Pumpkin Patch. They are made of chip board and are very sturdy. So many cute possibilities.

Tomorrow we have two card classes (they are both filled). We will make a Christmas card. You know it is not that far away. If you are signed up for the class bring a mat knife and a self-healing mat. We will be cutting a cute window in our card.

The one hour layout with Lucy is on Thursday night this week. I will get the page posted tomorrow.

Have a good night.

I was thrilled to step out and feel the cool air this morning. It put us in the mood to put out our Fall decorations. Emily helped me hang the flags and pumpkins. She is quite the little helper. Her favorite job at the store is to empty our waste baskets. But if you hear her say the can is full, you better go check it out because it means the paper is overflowing.

On the way into work I saw some wild turkeys crossing the road. It is such a thrill to see all the wildlife we have in our area. It makes the trip back and forth to town such a pleasure. You never know what or when you will see something.

We had our one hour layout class this morning and everyone did a great job. Tonight we are having our crop night. What fun!!!!

We have a new tool in our arsenal. Today we purchased a twelve inch Cricut. Boy can we do some fancy cutting. So look out for some new experimenting.

Have a great weekend. See you tomorrow.

The air was a little cooler this morning. My thermostat read 70 degrees at 8:00 a.m. Maybe we really will have some Fallish temps next week. I know as I was looking at my long sleeve shirts this morning and thinking "soon". I know we wish for cooler weather then we wish for warm weather. Go figure.

I think I have finally figured out why my little Prissy does not like going into the back yard at night even though there is plenty of light. She sometimes begs to go out and then wants to turn right around and head back into the house without any stops. I sometimes will close the door and force her to "go be quick." At first I thought her hesitation was because her buddy Rhett was not there with her. Then I reasoned maybe the grass was too high. Next was she is having trouble seeing. But!!! this morning as I let her out I spotted a big yellow cat sitting in the 4 wheeler seat out beyond the fenced area of Prissy's domain. But I know cats can do some climbing. So I now think that is what has Miss Priss spooked. But I feel as though the big yellow cat keeps the varmints away so Miss Priss will have to get over being skittish.

Let me know if you try the recipe I posted yesterday. Everyone tells me it is so good even the kids will eat it. I will post a new recipe each Wednesday so if you have a great recipe pass it on and we will share with our Scrappy group.

I am a little behind with my posting. But hopefully I will get better and be more consistent. These card classes are just keeping me going. I have now added a night class on Tuesday night and it is getting full. If we out grow that class I will try to squeeze in another night. Or maybe I will add a Saturday morning class.

Have a good evening and we will see you tomorrow.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Prissy and I were off yesterday but I did not stay home. Frank and I went to Ocala and then took the scenic tour home. Boy their sure is a lot of woods between here and the coast. Several rivers and creeks were pretty full. On our journey we passed several cute little shops but I refrained. Frank went to a couple of craft stores with me so I thought it only fair so we went to a tool store. The longest stop was at Sam's. Man that place was busy. And of course when we go out of town we have to eat at a restaurant that we do not have in Lake City. So we ate at my usual spot ---- Chili's. I love their mushroom jack fajita. I like mine without the tortilla and guacamole. We were gonna have a pit stop for coffee but needless to say the woods were bare. We had our coffee after we got home.

Things are kinda quiet here at the store this morning and I am working on the card for tomorrow. Remember to bring a watercolor brush to the class.

Well, see ya later.
