on this special day...

**T*G*I*F**

Yahooooooo for Friday:)

Here's my craftiness for today:



I had a ton of fun playing with some October Afternoon 5 & Dime that I picked up over at Cassie's Etsy shop, Paper Issues.  I did some fussy cutting with the blooms...and that SRM fit perfectly...the interior says "Congratulations!".

I was inspired by the latest Cardabilities sketch:
I'm also entering this into the Gallery Idol 2011.  Have you check out the fantabulous entries?!!!  There are 374 members and 950 entries...950 peeps!  The most entries by one person is 19, this card of mine will make my total 8:)

My job involves a ton of paper...a ton...sigh...no getting around it for now...I happened to catch this corner of my desk the other day and thought I'd snap a pic because my sweet non-bloggie friend sent me the lucky bamboo my first week of work...and although you can't tell, it is still alive and growing...{says the black thumb}.  The card and the paper weight are from some former co-workers that I miss dearly and the Keep Calm journal I bought for myself...how could I resist?


Okay...that's it for me....I'll see ya tomorrow with my last Card Patterns sketch...I can't believe my time is almost up with that fabulous groups of gals...I've soooooo enjoyed my time with them!
