Five for Friday

1. This has been a busy week!
Mostly due to the fact that we've been having VBS every morning at our church.
I'm volunteering as the Crafts Station Leader. :)

2. I have some very exciting news to share....

I've been asked to stay on the Chickaniddy Crafts Team for another year!
I was so thrilled to be one of the four team members who were asked to stay on the team--
my kids can testify to the happy dance I did when I got the email. LOL!

Click here to see the names of the talented women who make up the new team.

3. I was so thrilled to get my new Chickaniddy Crafts goodies in the mail,
I couldn't wait to start playing with them!
So, I made this card, which I linking up to this week's
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

This card using supplies from the new Chickaniddy Crafts Scrumptious line:
patterned paper, stickers & stamps.
The dies I used are Papertrey Ink.

4.  We've had such a great summer and I'm so sorry to see it come to an end.
The kids start school next week & I imagine I will be starting back to work shortly after.
It's a good thing there are some fun things planned for this fall to look forward to.... ;)

5. I have a card to share that I made for Tag You're It Challenge #5
where we're being inspired by this lovely tag by TYIC Designer Donna Mikasa:

I was inspired by how Donna die cut her flowers & leaves from coloured card stock and then stamped on them, so I made a card with a tag  using the same technique.

I use one of my Pretty Pink Posh tag dies, which I die cut from vintage cream card stock.
I die cut my Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals from spring moss, sweet blush & berry sorbet card stock
and stamped on them with the coordinating stamp set.
I stamped my sentiment in sweet blush and berry sorbet, using Papertrey Ink's Wet Paint stamp set.

Visit the Tag You're It Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's takes 
on the challenge and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Wednesday, September 10th to link up your project.

I'm also linking this card up to this week's
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking!
