Five for Friday

Five things I'm looking forward to this weekend:

1. Traveling with 39 women from my church to Minneapolis.
(We actually left yesterday -- it's a long weekend!)
I get to be the hostess for the trip: make introductions, review our agenda,
lead games, pull names for door prizes, etc.

2. Shopping at the Mall of America and the outlet stores
with my best friend.

3. Going out for meals -- read: no cooking!

4. Attending the Women of Faith conference
on Friday night and Saturday all day.
Then, we'll board the bus to come home.

5. Driving to St. Francois Xavier on Sunday afternoon
to watch Austin perform in the Central Manitoba Youth Choir.
It should be a wonderful concert!

And before I go, here's the card I made for our bus driver:

I stamped on a Songbirds leaf diecut with PTI's Brushed Off stamp set.
The sentiment is from SSS's Many Thanks stamp set.

A trio of buttons and twine finish it off.

Thanks for looking!

Love this card, thanks for sharing! With a color change, it would be great for sending at Thanksgiving. Sounds like an awesome weekend, especially that your best friend is sharing it with you!

A fabulous adventure, Leigh...and once again, I'm in awe at your incredible thoughtfulness in creating a card for your bus driver. I can picture the look of delight and gratitude on his face when you gave this to him. So heart-warming!
