WOW - it had been a while!

Hi All!!

Sorry for the extended absense......all I have to offer for that is the same old same old......life keeps me on my toes, to say the least.  ;)  I do have a bit of eye candy for you today though......not the ususal type of thing I share, but something I felt I needed to make and get out in the mail.

Do I have you confused yet?  Just a bit confused??  heheheheeee.....

Well.....I will start way back on Friday, October 29th at 4:00 in the evening.  My cell phone rings - it is my husband's set ring on my phone - so I know it is him before I even answer.  He asks me if I am sitting down......This can't be good news, right?  I say no, I'm not....what is it?  He says I think you need to be sitting down.  OK  -  I am about in panic mode about now.  So he proceeded to tell me he gets a call from work (he is a truck driver) first thing that morning.......OK - now I am really nervous........And let me tell you....my husband is a slow story teller.  He repeats things over and over and stumbles around the point......I am like just spit it out!  He then says to me - They called to tell me my name was drawn for Steelers tickets for Sunday's game - You know the game - Steelers wiped the floor with the Patriots - lol - I was like - NO SIR......You are lying.  He said Honestly - I did.  And then the story gets better and better......Our ticket package is a Legends Package.  HOLY CRAP!!!!!  He proceeds to tell me in our package in his mailbox at work will be a parking pass for the parking garage, seat tickets in the Legends section of Heinz Field (Which is actually at field level......we had to go down to the field to get our seats!!!)  And that our envelope would also contain tickets to get into the Legends Tent for a pre-game dinner with Steelers Legends Players - DOUBLE HOLY CRAP!!!!!!  This was my first Steelers game and it was done up right, let me tell you.  OH MY......

Wondering where I am going with all of this?  LOL......I just wanted to get this info out there.....hehe....no really - I do have some cards for you to see today.  I wanted to make a Thank You card for the company owner, and the two office men that were really hospitible with us with a little tailgaiting before we went to the legends tent - but I knew that just any ordinary Thank You card wasn't going to cut it.....So I came up with this:



A hoot right?  I used the thank you sentiment from Curly and Cute and then made my own template for the three inverted circles of the Steelers logo and cut the corcles with my circle scissor plus.  I thought they came out cute - and the entire office is absolutely Steelers CRAZY so I think they will like them.  Hope they will like them because a card can't thank them enough for the experience we had that day -

Well.....that about sums it up - Oh wait!   Wanna see one of the legends we got to see that day?

My husband was in awe of Rocky Bleier - and he was super nice and we could tell he really enjoyed being around the Steelers fans!

WOW!! My dream come true! We are also HUGE Steelers fans! Haven't been up for a game this year though. We usually drive up once during the season. The past 2 Super Bowls they have been in, we have gone to Pittsburgh to watch the game at a bar - paying $100 for a table. Our friends think we are nuts!
