Pretty Cool Huh?

Happy Memorial Day! Hope you are having a wonderful Holiday for those celebrating. It's a busy time of year and only another week of school for my littleun!

I finally cut into my TGF Roll Call kit. There are so many adorable image, can't wait to play with them all. I am joining in a couple of challenges this week. Inlinkz is doing a boy birthday card challenge with a color challenge. I followed the sketch at A Crafty Little Place. My friend Carisa participated in the Operation Write Home challenge and so I'm joining in this wonderful cause and going to send this card and many others to this fun group that sends cards to soldiers to write home with. And Quixotic theme this week is embossing.

I did a little Memorial Day weekend shopping and got some fun new things :) How about you? Thanks for stopping by today!

Very cool!!! There are some images I wanted on the roll call but not enough to justify the cost.

Yours is adorable! I love how you combined the star with this sweet image!

Blessings,

Hi Jacilynn,

Happy Memorial Day to you! Unfortunately for me just a normal working day... well, normal... had to bring my guy to the hospital this morning, 'cause he got injured with tennis Thursday..First they thought it was just a small injury, but this morning it turned out to be a broken enkle... So, he's now in the cast (is that the word... ;-) and has to stay in for six weeks! Wow!!! So much for our walking long weekend next weekend... too bad! Hope he will cure good and that he'll be up and walking again asap!
I love the colors of this card you made! 'Pretty cool'! Love the way there are stars all over, great job!!!
What did you shop for this weekend? Crafting items? If you did, I'm looking forward to the new things you will make with it!!
Big hug,
Wendy
