The inspiration for this card came from Clean & Simple Stamping where I just used misc. paper scraps, a $1 stamp and some Jolee's boutique stickers from my stash. I am also sharing this card for week #22 challenge over at Scraps of Color. I also linked this card up to Old Back Porch for her 52 card pick-up challenge.
Its the start of the holiday weekend and I'm looking forward to a little rest and relaxation. I hope you have a safe and blessed Memorial Day!

The Scrapin Diva is always sharing different sites and ideas. When I saw her card posted using this sketch from Feshly Made Sketches I decided to give it a try She created a beautiful card for Teacher Appreciation Week using the sketch. It was sketch number 84 on their blog. Have a great Wednesday!

The first challenge was hosted on the Cricut message board by a group of wonderful Circle crafters. You can head over to Around the Block with Scraplette where she hosted a Tic Tac Toe game. My card uses the three elements in the last column; a cuttlebug folder, bling and ribbon.
Secondly, I'm sharing this card for this month's challenge over at Mema's Crafts where this month's theme is Anything Goes with a suggested Mother's Day and or May Flowers theme.
I'm working on several other projects that have posting deadlines today so I may be back. Thank you for stopping by and have a great week.

Why has it taken me months to put such a simple LO together, I started on this LO for Black History Month and just never completed it. This LO is one that I completed last night as Tiare hosted and scrapbooked live on Spreecast. We had lots of fun chatting, putting our LOs together and just hanging out. She provided us with a sketch and page kit list for inspiration, you can see her post on her blog.
I still need to add the journaling on this LO as I need to confirm the actual date with DH. This LO includes pictures of my DH when he met Steve Pemberton author of A Chance in the World. Pemberton came to the University of Mary Washington to speak as part of their Black History Celebration. He will also be the keynote speaker for their undergraduate commencement next week. Pemberton penned his life story as a broken boy, his desire to establish his identity and how it shaped him as a man. My husband also learned that he and Pemberton are members of the same fraternity. It is a good read and of course DH had him to sign a copy of his book for our daughter.

Two Paper Divas; I just love when post like this arrive in my inbox! So this is one that I'll be using again and again since I've got a million scraps! I just used strips of paper for the present, twine for the bow, a little pearl embellishment and a stamped sentiment and I was done! Take care and have a great day.
