Don't forget to post here for a chance to win a $31 gift certificate from one of my favorite online stores!

Okay I finally felt like creating today and it feels good LOL! I was so inspired by Dawn's first card on this post I had to make one of my own. Thankfully I just had lunch with one of my old co-workers who I find oh so dear to me. It was such a blessing yesterday that I can hardly stand my excitement. The saddest thing is it has been so long that my cord I use to download my pictures went missing LOL! I had to go and purchase a new one. How sad is that?

I saw this challenge from Color throwdown and I knew it was perfect for the card I was thinking about. Then when I saw the finally friday video from Kristina and the challenge to use birght colors I was in like flint LOL!
Here is my card
Didn't that turn out fun? I made this for my good friend Ann. We just had lunch and it was so good chatting with her. I love when everyone takes the time to connect with old friends. I have to share her fabulous idea. She and her husband Jim are going to be taking each of their grandkids when the reach the age of 10-11 on a one on one trip with them. How fun is that? They get to pick anywhere in the continential united states. I passed this on to my parents and I can't wait to do this with my grandkids one day as well.
Onto the card. I loved all of the bright colors and decided to do some embossing with this card as well. The sentiment, background dots and the background on the red are all embossed. I really liked the touch it added to the card. The other two pieces are stamped with darker colors on the lighter colors. I decided to through in some fun buttons, ribbon and a punched corner to finsih off the card.
Izzy has a princess birthday party to attend later today and we still have to make the card for that as well. Hopefully we will get it all done.
It's a good life!
