Card of the Week & Fab 5!

Aaaaah the last week of Summer Vacation lies ahead and I am not even halfway into my Summer Fun to-do list.  I have scheduled something different for each day next week so it is going to be a good one!   I have a few crafty things lined up that I am working on so all in all this Summer has been great and I can confidently send the little ones off to school knowing that we are all ready for Back to School *wink*!

Thanks to all of you that played along in our Gallery this week :) It was fun visiting your blogs and catching a glimpse into your lives - some celebrating Summer along with me and others feeling Old Man Winter's fingers slowly loosening his grip.  Thanks too to Tiffany from Tiffany Doodles for being our Sponsor this week.  We loved working with your product and we hope you consider joining us here again real soon :) The winner of their own collection of Tiffany Doodles digital stamps is:

Card of the Week 

I could not hide my enthusiasm when I first saw this card.  Although detailed with a lot of product Lauren has managed to keep it uniform with a simple color palette and open spaces amongst the embellishments.  I love the whimsy and flow.  The surprise factor is another fun element on this card.  First you see a banner (no wait there are two) then flowers, crowns, bling, strawberries, shoes and palaces....oh my! Such a treat and a great take on the sketch - Awesome job Lauren!
If you are one of those people that enjoys a good read and chuckle while being inspired by gorgeous art work then you will love Lauren's blog:

Email me your deets Ms. Lauren so I can get your goodies to you :)

Fab 5!

Tomorrow Laura starts your week off with new sketch, new Sponsor and our whole design team working their brilliant magic.  See you in a couple of hours
