Good Ol' Friday

I'm retired. I was rather blessed to be able to retire quite early. So Fridays for me are just like any other day of the week, but there is still that sense of excitement when a Friday rolls around. That 'ahhhh...' feeling. It's going to be a fun and filled up weekend, which I plan enjoying to the max. Hope your weekends are perfectly wonderful as well.

By the way...Did you hear about Geri Greening from Manitoba Stamper? Oh yeah, she rocked it. She's the woman. She's the bomb. She made it into the Gallery Idol Top 20!!!!! Is that cool, or what?!! Be sure to stop over at her blog and give her a high 5. Way cool.

I'm playing today, over at TAWS Be Inspired challenge. They've got an awesome color palette, and I just had to play. See for yourself:


The treats don't look too bad either! Wouldn't they make the most yummy treats in school colors for a graduation party?!....Hmmmm..I'm throwing one next weekend....anyway....enough of my meandering.


So. I'm not sure what the blue base is, it was just in my jam-packed blue cardstock paper drawer. The red graph piece is from Pebbles, and the scrap of red polka dot is from SU. All stamps are from TAWS Awesome Blossom set (love that!), a random button, and some twine from my scrap box. The inks are SU-red, and Memento-blues. That's about it. Happy dances everyone.

Retired and know when Friday is? You are doing well. I also retired early and if it weren't for the computer, I might not even know what day it is. I love your colorful card.

WOW, Bev - Love. this. card! You've showcased your TAWS blossoms awesomely, and your 'take' on the sketch is clever! I'm still staring and pondering, with nary an idea emerging. As for Fridays - YES! This weekend, no road bike races, only mountain bike. Now, if only the rain would stop. Enough with the rain! Thanks for brightening my evening!!

I LOVE it!! The "bunches" of flowers and leaves in each panel are absolutely charming! Thanks for joining us at The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired challenge!
