Fox CARDS Magazine Challenge

The weekend, yay!

Is anyone else out there already experiencing the fall weather and colder temperatures? Yep, I am. I can't wait to see all the leaves change color. That'll be really pretty to see.

I am so bummed that the gym took the the 9:30 Saturday morning 1-hour spin class off the schedule because of low attendance. I hope they consider bringing it back soon, maybe when the colder temperatures set in. Even though I didn't go to spin, the other parts of my Saturday routine happened: going to yard sales and hanging out with friends. My yard sale find of the weekend was the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire DVD for $1, woot.

Towards the end of the work week, Robyn, Meg, and I quickly planned a pot luck at my place. I'd take care of the main dish (I decided on lasagna), Robyn would bring salad and bread, and Meg would handle desserts (brownies). This pot luck plan all started with Meg sending out an email that said that Thor was now out on DVD. I went to go pick it up from the nearby Redbox. I was cooking up a storm and had the lasagna ready in the fridge for when I had to put it in the oven later on. The recipe that I followed was this one. Yum yum yum! Oh, and yes, Thor was just as good the second time around.

Meg noticed my pink/black zebra nails at dinner, and she asked how I got them done. I showed her the Konad kit and she ended up going home with pink and navy leopard print on her nails :)

I went to the 9:45 1-hour spin class this morning and make a pit stop at my parents' house on the way home to pick up some of my clothes. My mom wants to start moving some of her things into the closet in my old bedroom, so she was nudging me to figure out what to do with all the stuff that's in there. I came back to my place with a bunch of clothes and as I was approaching my place with a very fully laundry basket in my hands, one of my neighbors saw me and wanted to say hello and introduce himself and shake my hand. Yeah, this was not really the most optimal time to be doing that because I had so much stuff in my hands and I was stinky from spin class. I probably didn't make the best first impression. Sigh.

Here's my fox-y card for this week's CARDS Magazine challenge. I followed this origami fox model tutorial and put the finished fox in the center of a few die cut circles. I didn't want the fox to be floating in the middle of the white circle so I created a nature scene with some grass and butterflies. The finishing touches were the sentiment and white faux stitching.
