Celebrate Everyday!


Happy, happy Friday to you!  I'm popping in with a bright, cheery card for you!  Not my normal color palette at all...but when I saw this week's Runway Inspired Challenge I new I had to try to go for it.  Bold and beautiful, right?  I was inspired by the damask and bright colors.  I added a bit of stitching too.  What do you think?

And...how is your weekend kicking off?  We're having cousin weekend at our house.   Our nephew, Will, is going to stay a few nights with us.  It will be fun to have one more little guy in the house and sleepovers are always very exciting!  Then Monday night we'll add my niece, Olivia, to the mix...I think we'll spend some time in the craft room together...we don't get to do that often enough!  What about you?  What's up for the weekend?

Pink is such a bright color, brings happiness, I think!
Great sentiment: celebrate everyday, together with your great boys, Lynn! Blessed to be a mother to four little men!
Enjoy your weekend with your nephew and next week will start right with your niece. Happy crafting together!

We enjoyed my birthday yesterday. Tomorrow I will have some time with two girl-friends. We intend to visit a hobby shop.
Sunday church and family-time. The weather will be fine, I hope. The sun was shining the whole week!

Wishing you a great time with your family! Judith

Working on catching up on some blog header designs and a stamp design, so I think my weekend will be busy! Good thing it is supposed to rain so I don't feel bad about missing the weather. Hope you have a great weekend. Your card is so cool, different from your usual, and still awesome!

Cristina said...

Yes, yes, yes! LOVE what you did with the sentiment!

Love when you use those Beautiful Blooms! I like the way you did the sentiment too.
Tomorrow will hopefully include some carding, a swim for the boys and baking some S'mores cookies for a friend!
