A thank you, a peek and the Friday Freebie!

Hello friends! That title is a mouthful huh? Well, lots of juicy bits to share this morning so I am so glad you stopped by!

First a HUGE THANK YOU to Dawn McVey for choosing my card to be In the Spotlight for this past week's Raspberry Suite Challenge! Definitely made my day to see my card nestled among such wonderful card friends :) I am in the letter "D" spot below! Yay! Such an honor! Thank you Dawn! This spotlight was made extra special to share since my dear sister in law, Traci Garzelli, is featured in the "O" spot!!! Love her and love her masterful use of the clean and simple with always THE *perfect* touch of something special. Yay Traci!

Next up is a peek for the My Time to Create Challenge team color challenge that will go live tonight at midnight EST. This inspiration for this challenge will for sure bring out the happy and cheerful in your creations. Join me here tonight to be color *inspired* by Lauren's color choice this week!

And one more piece of news that might make your mouth water! I have been spending alot of time stalking The DigiChick Boutique as of late and have been *ehem* a bit hooked by the whole concept of digital papers, hybrid projects and all that you can do with just one kit, let alone combos of a couple kits. And remember, I am no techno wiz, I do all my hybrid stuff with Microsoft Word so you don't have to go totally high tech to enjoy beautiful digital papers. Check out my Word tutorial at the bottom of this post {here}. And speaking of beautiful digital papers.....
Run on over to the DigiChick Blog and grab these lovelies for FREE today. Even if you do nothing more than open them and print them as a full sheet of paper to play with, you will not be disappointed! Elise Hansen does amazing digital kits and this friday freebie is no exception!
OK, that's it for now. Back at midnight with my color challenge card. See you then!!!

I saw that you and Traci made it into Dawn's Spotlight late last night....I wanted to say Congrats right then and there, but suddenly I realized I my head had fallen asleep at the wheel (literally....there's a gaming steering wheel on the computer desk for the boys!!) and so I dragged myself to bed. So Now... CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I'll bet that put a smile on your face. :> I enjoyed your card the first time I saw it and now I've had the fortune of enjoying it some more! :> Looking forward to seeing what you made for Lauren's challenge!
