just be exactly who you are...

TGIF My Friends...TGIF!

Things have been so very busy for me this week that I'm soooo looking forward to the weekend {okay, there isn't ever anytime that I DON'T look forward to the weekend}...Going to try out some new crockpot recipes and hope that both of the kids love them..makes it easier on their momma:)

Okay, okay....onto some craftiness....

This is a fine & dandy kind of card with a smidge of homespun chic:)


My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy....love it....well, I love everything MME slings out there...but seriously, could this card get any happier...there is something about suns and clouds....they always make me smile. All the pieces are chippies...the sentiment is from the the GCD Homespun Chic line:

just be exactly who you are

Gotta love those wise words...both for the young and the old...

I was inspired by the sketch over on the MME blog:



I really love it and can see using it over and over again...


Next up is a cupcake'licious card...



All the paper is Hambly...their stuff rocks....


The banner and sentiment is ala Lawn Fawn...the banner is stamped on the 'backside' of the kraft cupcake paper so that it matches p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y....

Hambly and Lawn Fawn...who does that remind you of?

Tiff!!!!

She started up a Sketchy Sunday feature on her blog...check out her first sketch:



**Reminder**


Pop on over to the NEW Flashback Friday Challenge blog...7.0 is posted....you don't want to miss it!!!


I'll be back tomorrow at 8 am PST with the new Card Patterns sketch & sponsor...you will want to join in the fun!!!
