Happy Friday, Shares, and Random Stuff!

Happy FRIDAY!! Oh my I am READY for the weekend.. been so busy here.. and still not done... :) I did get all my thank yous done! YEAH! NOW to fill them out.. I made them all different this year.. because I had so many things inspire me.. I sorta liked doing them that way... Hoping to have them out next week... gotta get Amandas done.. and mailing at the same time! Saving mother earth.. using only ONE envie!! :) That is my yeah I am late for mine.. but doesnt that sound so good about one envie.. so lets PRETEND that was my plan all along! :)

I have a couple shares for you! Gonna start with the sweet card Amanda made for our friend who is in the hospital :( ... I love it... she LOVES making cards.. that makes my heart happy!!! :)

Here are the final 2 thank yous of mine.... I am in LOVE with Kraft CS again!! Love the look of white on it!! Stamps, Ink, and the CS (except the kraft paper) are all from PTI I stamped my flower with lemon tart.. but wanted it to stand out a bit more so I used my yellow spica pen around the petals!

and finally one more share... I made this for myself earlier in the week! Used one of my flowers I shared last week.. I have wanted a cute paper holder, and fun stamped paper.. never sat down to do that just for myself.. well the other night I did! Probably shouldnt have done pink for the flower, BUT that is my favorite color, and the blues/green/yellow work well with the color in the kitchen.. so that is why it is a mixed color treat! LOL!! :) Again using one of Laurens templates LOVE them!!

So that is about it.. I have some randomness stuff! If you have time you MUST check out the PTI Senior Design Team Challenge that they did.. oh my!! Links HERE on Nicoles Blog I LOVED everything they shared.. I LOVE the idea of stamping on background paper that Michelle did! .. HELLLLOOO I have that paper and stampset.. so gonna give it a try!! I really LOVED everything the team did.. I wont link them all.. since I shared the main link above.. but if you want some BEAUTIFUL spring inspiration.. take a peek!!

I am off now.. I must get my walk in.. then home to get stuff done.. then get the kiddos (early out day today) Amanda has her build a bear event.. the brownie group is building a bear each for a child in the hospital... she is excited.. and I think buying a gift for her friends birthday tomorrow is almost as exciting! :)

have a GREAT day.. thanks for stopping by!!!!
