Five for Friday

1. It has been absolutely beautiful here this week! Our snow is melted and today, it's 16 degrees Celsius! Lovely! I went for my first bike ride of the season on Wednesday (ah, bliss!) and we're going to go for another one this afternoon.

2. I got a happy email today requesting one of my cards for publication in the Sept/Oct. issue of Papercrafts magazine!

3. This week was reportcard/parent teacher conferences which went well.

4. Tomorrow, Austin & I are going to be attending a black belt development day with our taekwondo club, which should be interesting. It's Austin's first one.

5. I wanted to share a card that I made for Leah's Papertrey Princess challenge to use the negative of a diecut on a project. I also used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Coloured Kissing.

I used PTI cardstock (fine linen, stamper's select white, sweet blush), stamps (beautiful butterflies, turning a new leaf, pretty peonies) & dies (beautiful butterflies, mat stack #5).

Thanks for looking!
Enjoy your weekend!

Congrats on having a good week, and on getting a card published. I always look at the cards in the magazine and go crazy when I see people I recognize, so I'll look for you. Also, great card. I love die cut negatives.
