A Jam Packed TGIF!

Good Morning Everyone!

TGIF!! Hold on to your seats gang, we got a LOT to talk about today!! First of all here's my entry for this week's Color Inspiration. For those of you who don't know, Kristina has decided to keep the Color Inspiration; but will no longer be doing the Round Up. To me, that's fine. I do it to be inspired and to check out all of the other great entries. Mr Linky makes it so easy to do that, so if you haven't had a chance before to check out the other entries, try to make it a point to do that sometime over the next few days. The colors this week are Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Basic Grey and White. Easy peasy, classic combo. Although I used Real Red instead. I also added a bit of Brilliant Blue, since there was a smidge of it in the photo. Anyhow, I knew I wanted to use my Paper Pretties "Sending you my love" Stamp; but I also knew that it would be cutting it close to send it to anyone for Valentine's Day. Then I received wonderful news from a dear friend who just found out she's expecting again. This is her third attempt. The first one she miscarried early, the second one was a 2nd trimester miscarriage, leading to a preterm birth that resulted in a stillborn birth. I swear I cried for days after I got that news from her. So, I'm sending all my love and best wishes to her with this card today.
Ok, what's next? Oh!! You must must must check out Cambria's Blog. Our Craft Lounge has released 28 new sets and she is giving opportunities to win them all. Be sure to check it out and read the rules for the game! There are so many fantastic sets. Good luck picking out your favorites. I finally narrowed it down to two: Oriental Gardens and Boys Toys.
Moving right along...(I told you we had a lot to chat about) It's my understanding that Beate is returing today with her weekend sketch challenge, which is fabulous!! I've missed doing them. I don't think she's posted it yet; but be sure to keep checking her blog so you can jump right in and get creative. I will be working on my sample as soon as I can.
I think that's all for now. I will, however be back again today. Hopefully, maybe even twice!! Once for Beate's sketch and also for GH chatter Friday. Have a good morning!
