The one I forgot


This post is for you, the one I forgot in your packet.  BTW, saw the video and LOVE it!  Especially the part where you say hi to me twice. :)

Edited 8/24/11 to add: 
Moxie Fab World is featuring some  awesome  sketch challenges this week.  The sketch posted today (shown below) is the sketch that inspired me to make this card.  I think I orginally thought of submitting it to the magazine but didn't.  I decided to give to my friend Tirzah, which I still haven't done, shame on me!  I promise I will!!!!  So since I didn't submit it then, how about doing so now for the sketch challenge. :)  I have another one from this week that I did too and hope to get it up today.

Thanks again for stopping, hope you enjoyed.  TIB I WILL GET YOU YOUR CARD AND THEN SOME- PROMISE! :)

A few months back I saw some advertisements for the MS Walk in Seattle.  I thought to myself, I should do that.  A few weeks went by and I didn't sign up but then I saw that it was MS awareness month and was reminded.  Finally, I signed myself and my family up as a team.  I have MS and thought to myself, "if I am not going to fight for my cause, who will?"  We only had a few weeks to raise money, so I made our initial goal $250 dollars, not much, but it seemed do-able. 
Now I want to tell you what we actually raised...$2,430!!!!  WOW!  What a generous group of people I know!!!  Can you believe that?!?  There is actually still time to donate if you are interested, check out our Team Website here
What is even better is that I had about 5 friends sign up to walk with myself, my husband and my daughter.  They were willing to take time out of their weekend to walk with us for this great cause.  So kind.  When the walk finally came and I showed up to meet with my team, I was so suprised to see ~20 extra people there with Team Katie shirts on!!!  Of course I cried, I couldn't believe the love and overwhelming support.  I can't imagine being so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life!
I've only made about 45 (2/3) of the thank you cards I intend to make so I have a ways to go, but I want all of those people who donated and/or participated to know how thankfull I am.  Here is a look at the cards and a picture of team Katie.

Thank you all so much!!!!

Did you know it is National Grilled Cheese Month?

Me either!  But I was thinking of grilled cheese today and when I went downstairs for a sammy the sign told me it was National Grilled Cheese Month and offered 15% off the grilled cheese!  How's that for serendipity?!  I was pretty excited.  Sometimes it is the little things in life that get you through.
If you are wondering what that has to do with anything, it doesn't other than that my posts are often "cheesy"....get it?!  I know, I know, dumb! :)  Oh well...
It also makes me think of one of the many stamp sets I want.  From Lawn Fawn.  I want Say Cheese and Say Cheese Too (Hubby if you are reading this you can note this under birthday ideas).  I just love the old school polariod camera!  Anyway, check it out.
What does that have to do with today's card?  Nothing at all except some cheese is orange (or yellow) and so are pumpkins.  I know, a stretch is a card I made a few weeks back for a Papercrafts call for halloween cards.  it didn't get selected which is why I am showing it here.  REJECT! :)  But I like it and it was fun to make.  Greeting Card Kids from SU! is one of my fave stamp sets and I enjoyed using the Tim Holtz die that you see at the bottom.

Happy Friday to you!
