For You

Time for a double challenge today...I made this monochromatic card using lots of Hero Arts yumminess...two of my favorite sets - the banner set and the French script...love them both.  To make the card I stamped the script on the vanilla paper and then used the distress ink around the edges.  I stamped the banners, cut them out and adhered them with dimensionals.  I tied knots in the twine and adhered with glue dots. The For You sentiment is with stickers from the My Minds Eye Stella and Rose collection.  You've seen a lot of that paper on my blog posts lately!  I thought it would be fun to enter this for both the Wee Memories Challenge (Free Your Creativity) and the Hero Arts Birthday Challenge.

Ingredients:  Paper Company White Cardstock; Stampin' Up Very Vanilla and Basic Gray Cardstock; Hero Banner and French Script Stamps; My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Stickers; Ranger Distress Ink Pumice Stone; Twine from The Twinery

Now...I thought I'd share some pictures from our bowling outing on Saturday.  First things first...I was the winner (I never win in bowling!)!  My score was 157...I even achieved a "turkey".  In bowling terms, a "turkey" is three strikes in a row.  Now that I've filled your mind with bowling trivia there are no pictures of me bowling.  Pat took some pictures of me, but they were a close up of my rear end...no need to share that with anyone!!!

Here are some much better pictures...first up is Marcel...anytime he would knock down some pins would turn around and show us on his fingers how many.
Next up is Ally (don't you love her curls?) who had this patented move everytime she made a good shot!
This picture absolutely cracks me up.  If you look closely you can see our niece, Erin, pointing her finger at her dad...and her dad,  Mike, saying, "I'm not saying a word."  Erin is very competitive and she was not happy that she didn't have bumpers.  Bowling without bumpers is hard...and she didn't like  that she wasn't doing as well as some of the siblings and cousins.  She had taken her dads advice on how to bowl and when she didn't do well quickly turned around and told him not to say another word.  We were laughing our heads off..true Erin style!  That competitive drive serves her very well...she is an amazing gymnast! 
Here she is a little happier with her dad!
Nana and PopPop treated us to the bowling outing...PopPop was checking out the scoreboard.
PopPop with lots of concentration...
And to finish off...Marcel and Laura relaxing while waiting for their turn...
