Sunday, Sunday! And the Sun is Shining!

Today I am combining 2 challenges in one. I use to grumble when "others" would do this. But now I realize it is fun and on days like today, when the sun is shining & it's the day before my 13th Wedding Anniversary, I simply don't have enough hours in the day today!

First, the sketch. This is a wonderful sketch from Jen , She posts a new sketch challenge every week. I LOVE this one! So much you can do with this and I knew what I'd do the second I saw it!

I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use the Great Friend stamp set from SU! since I got it. One problem...a lot of people have it and use it A LOT! It is the quintessential perfect set. Great image, cute frame, & words. Simply Perfect! If you don't have it, think about getting it. You will continue to go back to this set for many different occasions!
I hope you enjoy this card, and I had a really fun time using my "new", old set :)
Paper: SU! Basic Black, Mellow Moss, Whisper White
Embellishments: SU! Black Grosgrain, Pearls
Stamp Set: SU! Great Friend
The second challenge comes from Dawn, If you ever want a really good tip on taking photos, color combos, or want to become a world traveler I'd first check with Dawn!

Dawn has created the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. This week was great as I SO LOVE these colors together, but very few appreciate them together. Yea Dawn for being a courageous leader for the less thought of colors:) lol~

Well, gottago! Making a special dinner for tonight since we are both working tomorrow. Shrimp, oysters ;), steak & baby bellas, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Should be a great night with my beautiful family!
