We Can Beat This Starburst

Coffee of the Day - Buttered Rum

It's Friday! wooo hoooo! always a happy day, regardless of whether you are still in school or not. there is just something so special about a Friday, don't you think?!

I wanted to play along in the Unity Friends with Flair Friday challenge, but also saw a fun sketch over at The Stamping Boutique today. add that to the Outlawz Paper a la Mode challenge of pink that ends tonight, and I was in a hurry to get a card made today! :)

I have a box of cards I need to get out to MD Anderson in Texas to their cancer center, so thought I would add one more to the mix before packaging it up this weekend. this is the same place all cards for Hope You Can Cling To at Split Coast Stampers are sent. since my previous oncologist moved over 1 1/2 hours away from me, I no longer have a card box to add cards to. my current oncologist is at our local hospital, and they don't do anything like the card box I had set up before. so I need someplace to send all of my cards!

I have a big dr. appt. on Monday and start up tests & scans next week. not looking forward to that. you won't see much of me .....

stamps are from the Unity Angie Girl set, 'Cure Girls.' papers are from the Basic Grey Highline collection. starburst die is from Taylored Expressions, leaf flourish die is Cheery Lynn, and die for main image is Spellbinders.  the sentiment banner is actually attached with pink staples. I love these, but save them for very special projects! flower is Prima and sequins were just scattered over the card. I glued them down where they fell. love the random look!

will see you back here tomorrow! enjoy your weekend! :)
