TGIF, my friends! What are your plans for the weekend? Good times ahead I hope!! Or at least some stamping time!

Sometimes things are meant to be: I had to come home a couple of days early from vacation, but the same day that I came back a package came in the mail from Magnolia-licious...it held stamps from the Pet and Animal collection! Diana is so good to her DT...she always includes extra fun goodies for us with our DT stamps! This time it was some yummy coordinating paper! I used the paper on this card...so I am not sure where it came from. One piece was marked DCWV, so I think that maybe all of it is from a DCWV stack. (?) Included was some paper with that elephant and giraffe in circles. Well that came in super handy as our talented fellow DT member Becca gave a challenging sketch this month that included lots of circles. I used a little creative liscense and adapted the sketch a little, but I kept the basic elements. You can view the sketch and the rest of the DT samples at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. PS-participate and you can win a prize!!!

While I was away my blog counter hit the 75,000 mark! I have acquired some YUMMY goodies to share for blog yummies...so be sure to check back soon, because in the near future I am going to give something fun away to thank my readers! :)

Have a Fantastic Friday!
