congratulations to you...

Hello!

I'm still trying to used my neglected goodies...I was suppose to be on a buying freeze but that didn't happen for very long...more on that in a smidge.

Today's card uses PTI's Friendship Jar with some new October Afternoon Goodness:


I've had a couple Friendship Jar ideas brewing....I picked up the October Afternoon 5 & dime from Cassie's Paper Issues Etsy shop over the Memorial Day weekend.  Oh how I adore October Afternoon....and Cassie too:)

I wanted to keep the card semi-clean but really draw the eye to the star-filled friendship jar.  The card has been loaded up with SRM stickers...did you notice the tiny zig zagging?  There's something about a smidge of goodness from The Twinery...make sure you check out the current Flashback Friday challenge...the sponsor is Jay Gee's Nook and there might be some goodies from The Twinery as a prize!

This is going out to a gal that graduates high school this year..quite frankly I can't believe she's graduating...I remember when she was born....such a smart cookie...she'll be leaving her nest and heading to the east coast to attend an established private college...I'm so excited for her...she will continue to do great things with her life, I just know it.

Have you heard about Gallery Idol?  Are you joining in the fun?  What do you have to lose?  

Today is the start of the newest EAD Designs Color Challenge!   I'm the hostess with the mostess over there and would love it if you'd leave me some of that fantastic bloggie love...



It's loads of fun and remember this:


Thanks for poppin' by!
