Cherry On Top

I just have a quick card to share today. I promised my son we would go for a bike ride so this will be quick. I made this for a family member. I am sending out pictures and couldn't just send the pics in an envelope. Nope, that's too easy. So I am frantically working on bunches of cards. This is for the Weekend Sketch Challenge hosted by Beate this week.

Not a big fan of my card. I'm having some MOJO difficulties lately. I think it's because I feel so rushed lately. Being gone all the time, entertaining children and rushing to football every night is draining the creativity right out of me.

Speaking of football, it's been awhile since we've had a "Dose of Dalton" as I like to call it.

My son got to get his pads for football last week. He then proceeded to the table where he was to pick his number for his jersey. So there, surrounded by 3 people from my church, my son loudly announces that he would like number "69." Out of probably 50 numbers left on the sheet that is what he picks. What are the chances...really? Now I realize to an 8 year old this means nothing. I know that it is just a number. BUT, I plan on taking all his jerseys from every sport and creating a memorable quilt for him. Yes, THAT would be VERY memorable. However, I shook my head no and the nice lady recommended another number for him. He will have #65 now and we will be able to continue going to church...I think:)

Back to the card....
