There's Always Room...

Happy Friday!!! It is a beautiful day here in New England. It is a perfect day that is not going to last because starting Sunday it is going back to the 90s and humid. I have 1 week left and then I am back to school. I am looking forward to it, I miss being around all the kids.

This card I made last weekend when I was stamping with friends(So much FUN). I needed to tweek it a bit though before I posted it. I am not really a red person but I do love this color combo on this card. I love this digi from Phindy's Place. The DP came from a LSS (fantastic store) that is a day trip for us up in Dover, NH. I don't have any idea who makes it (no name on it) and it is semi-shiny and comes in a 81/2x11 sheet. It is this DP that inspired me to make this card and I don't think it is anything like what I usually do. I made it for a teacher and friend that retired recently. She would always say at lunch, "Pull up a chair there's always room for one more at the table."

Here are some challenges that fit my card
