*thank you*

Sweet, sweet Friday is here! Avery finished her first week of kindergarten and is sad she can't go to school tomorrow (I need to video that and show it to her in high school, hee!), Andrew and Katie are napping and I actually finished stamping something and the sun is still shining! I don't know what to do with myself...

Today's card is inspired by Taylor's cupcake challenge {no cupcake necessary} and I broke into a new packet of paper - Maine Blueberry - isn't is fun? Stampin' Up! has various packets of paper in this catalog with the same print but different colors. I chose this one so I can use it for boys or girls, isn't that so nice?

Have a great weekend (a long one in the US) and I'll see you back soon.
