You and me

It's FIRDAY!  Whewww, for me this week has flown by because I've been so busy and had some exciting things happen. *wink* Later this morning the Kindergarten class is throwing a Mother's Day Tea Party and my 5 year old insisted I attend. So I've taken a few hours off my work day to participate.  But I've also got a super-scheduled weekend ahead of me with volunteer work and a huge function at the kids' school. 

Todays card is actually a mistake of sorts. *smile* I originally had another image panel on the card, but when I dropped it, it fell off and I decided I liked it better without it! Do things like that ever happen to you?

Here is the original.




It's nice too, but maybe a bit too fussy...?I don't know. You can see I moved the sentiment. I just love this sentiment! I thought it was perfect for an anniversary card for my hubster, so I'm going to put this card away and keep it until August.

So did you see the news yesterday? *squeal* I am officially a Design Team member for Practicing Creativity Designs! The uber-talented and super sweet Courtney Baker picked lil' ole' me to be on her DT.  Check out the incredibly talented team: CourtneyAlice, and Paulina.  I just know we are going to have lots of fun.
I wanted to thank all of you who showered me with sweet comments yesterday. *blush* I felt so uplifted by everyone's congratulations. I love what I do and don't need accolades, but man is it nice to be "pointed out" occasionally! *Smile* You all raked in the good karma yesterday for sure! I hope you'll stick with me on this new journey...where would I be without all of you?

Thanks for stopping by today friends! Hope your weekend is stupendous!

Dana, congrats on all your new adventures in the land of DTs. So excited for you! I knew you'd be picked for the Practicing Creativity DT. You do amazing work! I really like both of these cards. I don't think the original is too fussy. Love the way you did the ribbon.

I know what you mean. Often my most creative ideas are solutions to problems/mistakes!
Great cards!
