friend...

Happy Thursday!!!

Today's 365 Cards Challenge:

One stamped image
One stamped sentiment

That's it...no embellies...no pattern paper...no cosmo cricket {lol}....

This was a GREAT challenge for me...forced me to ink up my sadly neglected PTI Friends 'Til the End set. Clean & Crisp on top of a fabulous Fabriano....Green has to be one of my favorite colors...most of my friends say it is my signature color :)

Talking about friends....let me introduce you to my "New" Best friend:


I admit it, I'm getting older...LOL...this summer is actually my 25th High School Reunion...sheesh that makes me feel even older! Anywho's, as time goes by, my memory has progressively gotten worse. I'm notorious for writing myself notes {then forgetting them} or even yes, writing on my arm...can't write on my hands because I wash them so frequently....After talking to my friend "k" over the weekend, she told me she went back to a day planner. So I visited my local Franklin Covey store and took the leap. I'm so going to make it fun...color coding, rub ons...you name it...

Okay, back to being crafty & today's 365 Cards challenge...show me what you got!!

  33. super cute card Amy and I love that dayplanner . . . I am a calendar girl myself . . . everything gets written on a giant calendar in my kitchen although I still tend to forget a few thing LOL

  34. Fabulous CAS card!! I started hyper-ventilating at the thought of no ribbon or buttons though! lol!

    This summer is my 25th class reunion too! I know just what you mean about forgetting, it sucks! I told my mom awhile back that "I actually had to write things down to remember them now"! She was like, "Poor you, wait until you're 60!" lol!

  35. Super great friend card- clean and simple! I love your planner too dress it up now! :)

    But not for me...it would hold incriminating evidence on what sales were coming up, what I bought, what's on order, etc etc. No way for me on the planner!

  41. I love this card. Your simple designs are always my favorite.

    Welcome back to the world of paper. I love my FC day planner. I've used almost all of their sizes and designs over the years and have settled on the spiral bound compass (pocket size, week on 2 pages).
