Countdown to a Celebration!

Please Scroll Down for the

Hello !

I'm back again with an uber-quick post.

I didn't have a chance to share the card I created for the current
challenge over at The Play Date Cafe due to a minor accident
involving my husband Paul last Wednesday evening.
I chatted with several of you over on Facebook, but long story short . . .
We were at Home Depot searching for some finished wood to use
as a base for our brand new 60-gallon freshwater aquarium.
The clerk asked Paul to help him move a few of the sheets
and on sheet #2, Paul lifted his head and cut it open on a metal
bracket above.  Needless to say, stitches were put in and the
evening got away from me.  Well, the rest of the week into
the weekend got away from me.

He is doing well now and I thank you for your kind
thoughts, messages and prayers, both on facebook
and via email.  It is always such a blessing to know I am
in a community of caring folks.

So here is this week's challenge

and here is my interpretation

I love this new paper from Prima's Rondelle collection.
As soon as I got my 6x6 pad in from,
I knew I wanted to use it for this challenge.
I created my frame using a Spellbinders die & matching
pearl Nestabling from Want2Scrap. I used a fab tiny print
stamp from Glitz Design and stamped it on the diagonal.
The sentiment is from PTI.

I really hope you will make plans to join us this Thursday, October 18th
as The Play Date Cafe celebrates it 3rd Anniversary.
We will party for FIVE days with . . .
