Wow, its Friday already. Where has the week gone? Last weekend my grandson's gymnastics team had their awards celebration for the 2009/2010 year. It was so nice to see all the gymnasts in their dressy clothes. These children range in ages from 6 to 18, competitive levels 4 to 10. The three highest awards that the gym gives out are Most Improved, Coaches Award and Gymnast of the year for the girls team and the boys team. What a wonderful surprise for us; my grandson received the boys team Gymnast of the year award. Can I brag about him a little bit? He entered the world of gymnastics in March of 2007, in June the gym invited him to be on the competition team. He competed that season as a level 4, age 6. This year he competed at a level 6, age 8. They have moved him up to level 7 and he will compete as a 9 year old for the 2010/2011 season. His future goal is to go to Stanford and be on their gymnastics team.

I made two cards yesterday. I had loaned out the Cricut cartridge that I wanted to use for the sketch challenge card, so ended up using my Slice. The owl isn't quite as cute but I had my heart set on using an owl. I had the hardest time coming up with something for these cards. Here are my cards. I used the Slice to cut out the owl and the word "dream".
For the card on the right, I use a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The stamp is Hero Arts. I simply love and use this stamp the most.

I look at blogs and they all look so pretty and neat. I can't seem to get the "neat" part right. I will work on "pretty" when I get "neat" fixed. I upload my pictures, but can't move them around. Where they land is where they stay. I did manage to move the cards down from the top, but can't even them up or word wrap, or whatever to give some consistency to the post. They are the way they are now strictly by accident. I lost the "dream" card and had to upload it for the 4th time. I am going to format the text and post this before I have to upload something else again. There has to be an easier way.
