Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams

Happy Monday!  I thought I'd pop in and share a few links for a variety of things today.
  • Need a laugh - Oh how I appreciated this post from Susan.  Very timely since I had just made purchases at PTI, Verve and SU...don't tell :)
  • This card from Laurie is gorgeous.
  • I love all the tags on this card.
  • And a few sites for helping out friends: Meal Train or Take Them a Meal or Lotsa Helping Hands.  I thought these sites were very timely given my post from Saturday.  Thank you so much for all your kind words.  I can't thank you enough.
My card today is inspired by this week's Play Date Cafe Challengee.  I love the colors.  I made this card for my dear friend, Barb.  Next week she will be finishing up her PhD.  She is one amazing mother, wife, friend and advocate for food safety. I am immensely proud of her.  To read more about Barb, click here.  We'll be celebrating her achievement next week!
Ingredients:  Verve Words of Wisdom Stamps and Dies; Stampin' Up Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade and Crumb Cake Ink

PS It is going to be CAS week on the blog this week!  I had lots of fun creating over the weekend and just about everything I made is very clean and simple!

Love what you have done with the new set. I adore the sentiments in this one. I am eagerly awaiting mine in the post. It takes a little longer to head down our way. I am looking forward to having a play.

I agree with Be(e) - you rocked the colours! Love those little arrows too. Susan's post cracked me up. That's exactly how I always feel! :)

Love the way you used these colors, Lynn! Thanks for the great links too!

Ohh, love your take on these colors. I also created over the weekend using these colors and came up with something completely different. Definitely like your version way better. So clean and simple and to the point.
