Happy Saturday, everyone! After a week of cloudiness and too much rain, we actually saw the sun yesterday. SHOCK!! It dried things off just in time for our 12-year-old to participate in our local Relay for Life yesterday afternoon through early this morning. It was her first time in the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event. She relayed with a team from her youth advisory board at our public library, so she wasn't there on her own, but she was a little nervous because she didn't know what to expect--and none of the rest of us were involved. Turns out she had an awesome time! She walked nearly four miles, had a blast, and even got a few hours of sleep overnight at her team's campsite. And luckily, no rain. Whew! We'd been sweating that one. We are SO proud of her--for trying something new that was a bit outside of her comfort zone (or maybe it was just outside of Mom's comfort zone?) and for the awesome fundraising she did in preparation for the event. She ended up raising $220 for the fight against cancer, which we think is just fantastic. Go, go, my sweet daughter!!
This morning I want to share a "classic" project that I'm submitting for the Flashback Friday 11.0 Challenge. Our challenge this time out is to post our first wedding card. Now I have to admit that I don't have much of a need for wedding cards these days--all of our friends are already married and everyone's kids are still too young to start off down that path. But I did make this card in February 2010. It is my first white-on-white card. I intentionally made it with no sentiment to keep it versatile, but while making it I thought it would make a great wedding card and added it to my stash with that idea in mind. It's still there (see? I told you I don't have much need for wedding cards right now!), but I know that's how I'll use it at my first opportunity. My original post for this card (in my SCS gallery--it predates my blog) may be found HERE.
Thanks for dropping by today. May your day be filled with bliss!!
