Raspberry Suite Challenge #8 {again} and a sweet find

TGIF darlings! I love a friday...especially when it's the last day of school for my 2nd, now 3rd GRADER! Wowsers! Final day of school = class party and a thank you for a wonderful teacher! Thus, the coordinating card to yesterday's gift box! Keeping in theme with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Challenge #8. Literally, this is card casserole, AKA all pieces from my desktop reworked into a sweet little card.

the challenge:

my card:
and the combo of yesterday's triangle box and the card casserole card :) Check out the details and the GIVE AWAY I am hosting with Kelleigh Ratzlaff HERE. {click}
And just to share something random, check out these smashing aluminum tart pans/jello molds I scored a a thrift store in Ukiah, CA! I LOVE them and I especially love that they were 25 cents. I just have to think of the PERFECT thing to do with them!
Have I confessed here in blogland I am a thrift store junky? I AM! And the junkier and cheaper the thrift, the happier I am. I LIKE to buy crafty stuff for a 5 cent price tag...it makes my day in fact. I have more thrift scores to share in future posts that will eventually make their way into the crafting and home dec ideas I have rolling around in my head. OK, I am blabbering...it's getting late and I need to wrap this up and schedule it.
I am SO glad you could stop by today! I am honored that you share your day with me :)

Love your card casseroles, Dana!! You rock at making your scraps sing. I always forget to do that with my scraps. I really should because I'm not a fan at putting my scraps away and will procrastinate it to death. Love the little white dots at the scallops around your latte and of course, that MS border punch!! :>

Cute card! Love the foam on top! My son is also going to the 3rd grade this year, how neat! I too love thrift stores and yard/garage sales. You can find so many cool things to make from there!

Gorgeous card! I am sure you will find something great to do with those tins! I have been itching to go do some yard sale/thrift store shopping myself... just have to find time to do it without the toddler! :-) Can't wait to see what you come up with!
