thankful..

Happy 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!

This week our sponsor is:

Here's the fun sketch for today:


I had the opportunity to play with the Pumpkins image by The Character Cafe...

I decided to really make the image pop so I just used one of the pumpkins...it really spotlights the image which I paper pieced with Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie and River Rock.

I hope that you'll play with us over at 365 Cards! Show us how the sketch inspires YOU and link up!

♥♥World Card Making Day♥♥

How was your WCMD? Of course, I like to call it World Card Making WEEKEND:)

I spent a big chunk of time out on the water yesterday:) My brother bought me tickets for the Queen of Seattle, Paddle Wheel Cruise. It is the largest steam powered paddle wheeler west of the Mississippi.



I took lots of pictures but this is the 'readers digest' version...one of the most famous Seattle iconic symbols...the Space Needle:

I can assure you that we totally lucked out on the weather...it was overcast but warmish for us...this time of the year our Seattle uniform is Gore-Tex rainwear:)

Do you guys recognize these houseboats? Yup, the one on the left is from Sleepless in Seattle...

I took my Momma with me...we had a ball and afterwards went to a GREAT kaiten sushi {conveyor belt} place called Sushi Maru. Do you all remember that I don't eat raw stuff...neither does my Momma....we still found tons of delish stuff to feast on...

So that was a majority of my WCMD...but I'll be crafting all day today inbetween a soccer game:)

    The riverboat ride sounds like a lot of fun. We have one of those here that goes down the Mississippi River and through the Locks. I have yet to go so maybe you will inspire me to go next summer.
