WSC109: We Three Kings


Weekend Sketch time. Right now I’m just focused on the weekend, and I’ll be moving into that as soon as I can this afternoon. Not before I stop by and see what Beate, Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn, Laurie, Mary Jo and Sharon have created with the sketch.  They always make everything look so pretty. 🙂

It’s the middle of deer season (it goes on forever in some fashion – bow-youth-rifle – the days just drag on). It really can make for stressful times on the home front, but last Saturday night, I packed up some jammies for the girls, took them to grandmas and stopped into my LSS, Stamper’s Ink to pick up My Favorite Things Kim and Ms. Cat’s Pajamas herself, Alma. Before we left the store, I was oogling over both of their display sample boards with beautiful cards that their design teams sent to them. I had seen a card here and there, that made me love this set: Penguin Christmas. (Amy & Joanne have that affect on me!)

After I checked out their stamps and samples, I loaded them into my car along with cute Megan Lock, and took them down to the Country Club Plaza for dinner. We chatted and laughed for over 3 hours. It was just what I needed to escape the deer season madness. I’m so glad they squeezed me into their busy KC schedule.

It’s been a long, long week here. I switched to a new computer about 2 weeks ago when my laptop died at Denver International Airport. I’ve had a few learning curves and software bugs to work out. Three hours on the phone to let technical support tell you that you are the first in America to report a glitch in a major software company’s recent upgrade that prevents you from a mainstay function for your job wasn’t really fun. I didn’t get a prize, not even an alternative solution while I wait for the world-wide download update to be released, goodness knows when. Not really fun stuff for a non-techie like me.

At any rate, I’m looking forward to a warm weekend with my family and our annual Thanksgiving Dinner at church on Sunday. It’s all good.

Have a great weekend!

  11. I can sooo relate to your deer hunting “madness”, if you will…read my Sat post for a giggle. I hear ya: bow-youth-gun…and if I remember correctly, we can go right back into bow after the gun season is over, blech! Anyway, enough commiserating!

    Ok, so I love the your wise-penguins, they are perfect with the sketch, and the star is perfectly placed! I have yet to ink up this trio and want to do them the justice they deserve, so thank you for the inspiration.

    I’m so excited for you that you got to hang with miss MFT and TCP, you lucky girl! Hugs to you!

  12. Love this! So simple and so elegant! I need to get a sewing machine! Your stitching is just perfect!
