Smiley from Good Saturday morning! I hope your weekend has started off with a bang Smiley from . . mine sure has! Today I finally get to tell you my big surprise . . . . I’m the May Guest Designer for Crafty Secrets! I’ve been talking with Sandy for some time now about guest designing, and we finally got it all together. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to be working with Crafty Secrets for the next month.

All week long Crafty Secrets has been celebrating National Scrapbooking Day and even though I’m coming into the game late, I wanted to play along with the Design Team today in their Photo Challenge. Vicki, Heidi, Linda, Melissa, Michelle and Flo will all be posting $50.00 Crafty Secrets Giveaways and you just need to leave a comment to be entered (and an email address in case you win).

I used a photo today from the Girlfriends Images & Journal Notes for my card.


And then the inside.

Old Friend Inside

A perfect birthday card for one of my mother to send to one of her friends!

Once I had this card together, the left top looked a little bare to me so I went searching through my button collection. I love it when I find old buttons with the thread still attached!

That’s it for my big news today . . . what a great adventure! I hope you have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by! Remember, life is short . . . . Enjoy the adventures that come your way!
