An Overdue Thank-you!!!

Last month a sweet crafty friend of mine (KelliJo) surprised me with some snowflake dies that I have been wanting, but they were always sold out.  I feel so bad that I'm just now getting around to making her a card with the snowflake die to thank her for her kindness...thank-you so much for your big heart KelliJo!  You are such a sweetheart and are always thinking of others!  Thank-you for RAK'ing me with such a sweet gift!!!

I started off with a Perfect Plum card base, Die-namics Let it Snowflake, SU Square Punch, SU Noteworthy, EP Winter Wishes and a Rhinestone.  I used CTS#15.

On Saturday my friend Barb and I did the Cityscape Adventures Race.  It's like a mini version of The Amazing Race.  We had to take a picture of each task we did, we had to stay together (we couldn't divide and conquer), we could walk or use the city bus only, and had 5 hours to complete the race.  We had so much fun!  Below are a couple of pictures from the race...

Barb and I before the race started...

We had to go to a Fire Station and play leap frog...

Have other people play out "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil"...
Well, they're a lil' outta order, lol!!!

Find someone wearing a U of A shirt and do a cheer with them...

Find the Tiki Guy downtown and do the hula in front of him...

Make a human pyramid with at least 6 people in front of The Children's Museum...
(The little girls were so excited and asked us if we minded their dad taking a picture with his cell phone so they could show their mom.  They kept thanking us, it was so sweet!!!)

Barb and I after the race, we were dead tired! 
We finished in 3 hours 8 minutes.
Came in 68th place out of 102 teams.
 82 teams finished...not bad for our first time!

If you're still with me...
Thank-you so much for stopping by!
Have a great week!
