Oh Baby, It's Friday!

Hi friends!  I don't know about you, but I am so happy Friday has finally made it! This week has taken it's tole on me...emotionally, mentally and physically.  The Boston Marathon tragedy has left me with a sad heart and the inability to wrap my head around why people feel the need to commit such horrible, awful, senseless acts.  But rather than sit back in fear of what is going on in our world, I put all of my energy into my running and continued training for my upcoming 1/2 marathon...running is my release and I refuse to let anyone take that away from me :)

I did get some good news from a fellow running buddy the other day...she's going to have another baby!  I am so, so, so excited for her as this has been a long journey for her.  And since I just got the super cute Oh, Baby single stamp, I had the perfect reason to use it.

While my friend is not yet sure what she is having, her favorite color is purple and the color pick this week over at Friday Mashup is just right for this card!  Not sure that the little flower would go through the mail very well, but I will see Miss Ginny on Sunday and hand deliver this card to her :)

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, 2011-2013 In-Color DSP (Wisteria Wonder)
Ink ~ Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White Craft
Stamp ~ Distressed Dots, Oh, Baby
Other Supplies ~ Boho Blossoms Punch, Neutrals Brads

I also used the latest sketch challenge from Chic the sketches they are bringing to us!

Here's to a great weekend to all...a chance to re-charge our mind and body and to spend time with those that we love most! 

Happy Stamping!
