World Card Making Day


October 2 was World Card Making Day, so in honor of this I decided to spend some time making cards this weekend. It's the perfect opportunity to share one of the cards that I made because I originally created this blog to showcase cards and other paper crafting items that I create. I happen to know several friends and relatives celebrating birthdays this month, and while the card shown in the photo here has a general "autumn" theme to it, I was able to modify this design slightly and turn it into a birthday card. So as not to spoil the surprise, in case you are someone with a birthday this month reading my blog, I decided to post a photo of the seasonal card.
I hope that you have had a nice, relaxing weekend. I have enjoyed my weekend thus far. The weather was perfect for taking a couple long walks, which included an eight miler with my friend Zeva at Sawyer Camp Trail in San Mateo (photo below). I've also gotten my "sports fix" this weekend, between watching the Giants take on the San Diego Padres, the 49ers vs. the Atlanta Falcons and the Oregon Ducks over the Stanford Cardinal. The fun continues on Monday night when the New England Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins - can't wait! I've also been busy in the kitchen whipping up the following dishes: Tortilla Soup with Black Beans and Pumpkin Blondies. I love cooking and baking, especially during this time of year. I'll be sharing the Pumpkin Blondies with my co-workers on Monday.
Wishing you a wonderful week.

The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
