Friday is almost here...

Happy almost end of the week!!! Things are finally starting to slow down a bit and get into a routine both at school and home.  I am hoping that means a little more time to get crafty and then share on my blog!

 I just wanted to stop by and share one of the cards I made last weekend!!  I can't remember if I've mentioned this here or not but I've agreed to make the cards for all the birthdays and events at school this year.  This card is for a gal's new house!! 

Do you ever finish up a card and think WOW that's one of my favorites ever?? Well I have to admit I did that with this one. I just love the color combos and the LO turned out well too!! 

I used the papers I received in the Taylored Expressions August 2011 kit. I have to tell you I absolutely LOVE getting these kits because they make combining colors and DP so easy!! The image is from the {ippity}'s Devoted set.  You can see this and lots more wonderful sets of {ippity} images from Aletha's sales blog

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges -
Crafty Ribbon - Anything Goes
Hanna and Friends - Anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Anything Goes

Don't forget the Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge #6 Button or Bow or Bling Oh My!!  is going on.  

As always, I am so grateful to those of you who follow and leave me some love. I know I haven't been out and about much but hope to change that.

Blessings and Hugs,
