Nobody Does it Better than Jellypark!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice :)

for the winners of the Jen's Sunshine blog hop, please go down to the next post.

Today starts a new challenge at Jellypark Friday Friends, 'All About the Children.' We want to see projects that showcase our kids, especially since most of them are now back in school. Let's celebrate them! :) We also have a new guest designer for the month of September - the incredibly talented and VERY sweet Tracy MacDonald. please stop by and give her a big welcome!

My card is hopefully already at its destination - our son Mick's college dorm mailbox! :) He is in a big longboard competition this weekend in Michigan and of course Mom thought he needed a card of encouragment! if you aren't familiar with longboards, they are a type of skateboard. Mick is pretty good with his, I must say. He had it specially designed just for him, and he is constantly tweeking it here and there.

The wonderful image is brand new to the Jellypark store. it is called 'Skateboard Oli' and is one of the special Little Haven charity fundraiser images. Claire drew it based on the idea of the winner of the last Jellypark Junior challenge. isn't that the coolest thing?

Papers are from the Basic Grey Shine On collection, twine & washi tape are from Etsy, wonderful arrow tag is from the monthly kit at Freckled Fawn, flair button is from Evalicious, notebook paper sticker is one I made, and buttons are October Afternoon. arrows were die cut from cardboard and then sprayed with Mr. Huey white. same Mr. Huey white was misted over card base in addition to dewey Mr. Huey. well, gosh, that was fun to type! tee hee!
sentiment is from Create with TLC. little itty bitty senti is from a Smash stamper. it reads 'that deserves a fist pump'.
