Thought for the day -

Good Monday morning to you all! How was everyone's halloween? We had a pretty busy weekend. Jordan is in cub scouts this year and they had big halloween bash Friday night. Greg & Jordan went as Darth Vader and a clone trooper. Greg works nights so he misses the cub scout meetings but took a vacation day to go to the party with Jordan. They had a ball! Then, of course, Saturday night they went trick or treating. This is the 1st year Greg was home for trick or treating. I stayed home to hand on candy. It was a pretty quiet night. I think we had maybe 15 trick or treaters. We don't have many young children in our neighborhood.

Yesterday Jordan and I went to see the Michael Jackson movie "This is It". I was a fan back in the 70's and 80's- yes I am dating myself here! hehe. I must say the movie was very good. Despite all the negative's about Michael, there is no taking away from the fact that he was hugely talented! Watching the rehearsals and all the behind the scenes stuff that goes into putting on one of his shows was pretty amazing. It's a very sad loss.

Ok now on to my card. This is my entry for Sunshine Monday. I have no other challenges-this was just a quick card and I'm afraid not a very great picture. My camera's batteries were low and not another one in the house. I usually keep a stash but am out.

I actually used last weeks sketch from Friday sketchers that I never got around to using for their challenge. I love the simplicity of this sketch.

My image is, of course, from Sunshine & Giggles and is called All I Want Is....
I used my cuttlebug snow flake folder for the background and a few strips of scraps I found in my stash. This is a great sketch for using those left over pieces . My cardstock is from Stampin Up, green ribbon and the image is colored with my copics.

Be sure to check out the other sunshine girls creation.

Absolutely fabulous card! You did great without a challenge.

You should post pics of Greg and Jordan. I want to see them in their costumes. Huge Star Wars fans live in my house.
