STAMP SOMETHING INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

Happy Friday all!! Whoohoo!! I am super excited today because it is time for another Stamp Something Challenge and my good and fabulously talented friend Melissa is sponsoring this week's challenge with an awesome inspiration challenge!! Love this piece - it is gorgeous!!! I decided after drooling all over the picture (seriously, is that not the cutest bag EVER??!!!) that I would focus on the colors, stripes, and polka dots and make a fun card using my new Just Jawing set - I love it, it makes me smile!! So this is what I came up with! I hope you like it, it was a really fun card to make and I know EXACTLY who this is going to *wink* - it's perfect for her! Now that you have seen the beautiful inpiration piece (I gotta get one!) make sure you pop on over to the Stamp Something site and check out what the rest of the gals did - it's a crime there is that much talent in one place, lol!!! And, make sure you upload your take on this to the site and get entered into the drawing - whoohoo!!!! Gotta love it! So, today I am finishing up DT work for Coconuts (can't wait to share!) and packing for a weekend away with one of my best friends!! Liz and I have known each other FOREVER and she is currently stationed in Norfolk Virginia so obviously I don't see her too much. Well, she found out this week that she is going to be in Monterey CA (three hours from me!) for the next two weeks so I am going down to spend the weekend with her (well 1.5 days because Tony has to go out of town) so I am excited!! And believe me, after this week, I NEED the break - not a good week, folks!!! But anyway, I will leave you with the recipe and yes, there will be posts all weekend so don't worry *wink* I wouldn't want you to forget about me - HAH!!! Have a fabulous weekend - I am leaving straight from Kayla's soccer game tomorrow morning - whoohoo!!
