I nearly forgot that I had these to show you. I entered this in a card to crop contest. When you join TAC, you are eligible to compete in monthly contests for a chance to win $75 worth of free stamps. I think that TAC is specTACular (thanks Heather Scott love the way you spell this word). I'm pretty sure that I entered this one in the November contest. I can't be sure. Anyway, I know that it didn't win for November.
Above you see the card portion of the contest. The diamond shaped design is actually what was leftover from my June calendar. It was one of my first posts. You can see it by checking out the blog archive.
Here you see the crop portion. This is a favorite picture of mine. My boys generally fight constantly. So, when I see them together like this, my heart melts. Those are the days that remind you it is all worth it. This is a picture of our first trip out on the open ocean. I have to tell you that I'm not much for open water. I love the river but out where I can't see dry land. UGH! Can you say Dramamine?
Finally, here you see both projects together. I was rather fond of these and disappointed that they didn't win. What can you do?! I'm really not sure what the judging criteria is. It's not really important. I keep entering every month. I'm going to have to get busy for the next contest.
I hope your Wednesday was wonderful because mine certainly wasn't. Sick kids are just wearing me out. I'm hoping that the visit to the ENT on December 2 will make a huge improvement in the health of this household. I'm taking steps here. I can't wait until December though.
Hope your Thursday is the tops!
