Happy Friday...

Hi there...popping in this evening with a quick share and a peak at my first ever published card!  I mentioned a few days ago that I was published for the first time in CARDS magazine this month.  So...how fun, when I got a marketing email today from CARDS/NorthRidge Publishing and it had my card as their marketing image.  Did a little happy dance and then of course, wanted to share it with you!
I also wanted to pop in and share my card for the current Wee Memories Challenge.  The sketch challenge this week was a lot of fun.  I love the scallop at the top.  And of course, pulled out one of my favorite sets...PTI Fancy Flourishes. 

I hope your weekend gets off to a great start.  I popped out of work a few hours early today after a meeting and surprised Jonathon by picking him up from school.  We came home, changed and went to Barnes & Noble.  Jonathon picked out some "non-fiction" books on Walt Disney, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. He's already started Abraham Lincoln and is filling me in on all kinds of facts.  We then stopped in the B&N cafe for some hot chocolate and a gooey Oreo stack cake filled with Oreos and cream...yum!  We then headed over to karate.  So nice to have one on one time with one of my guys.

Hope you have a fabulous relaxing weekend!
