LOVE


TGIF! It's time for a Fast Friday card! This card's colors were inspired by K. Werner's color challenge. I have not used my Cricut in a while and I was determined to use it. I decided to use my brand new Home Accents cartridge. Although it's really not brand new, I have yet to use it until I made this card. Now, I feel better!

It's a super simple card and once the die cuts are made, the card pretty much falls into place.

Today, we also find out the Top 10 Gallery Idol finalists. Can you feel the butterflies in my stomach? I can't wait until later this morning until the finalists are revealed! These past few weeks have been so exciting for me. I really am enjoying creating a card each week for the contest, but really viewing all the cards on Monday mornings to see how each finalist interprets the theme. It's really amazing to see people's styles shine through a card.

What's in store for your weekend? Mine is blank! By that, I mean we have nothing planned. We went a few weekends with photography sessions back-to-back, so I'm happy not to do anything. I'll be watching Mac process all those photos! Then, I'll make a photo album for the happy couple! :) Can't wait to select the top pictures and show you all too! Of course, I'll get crafty here and there too.

Next week is another Girl's Night Out event! I'll be there along with many other vendors selling handmade jewelry, handbags, clothes, and body creams. There will also be pampering services such as make-up, massages, manis + pedis, and eyelashes. Lots to do for a lady on a Friday evening! Come join us in on the fun at Washington DC's National Harbor. Here are the details:


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
