It's Friday!!

Which means...a Friday Freebie for you from Paper Makeup Stamps!  This week Katie has cooked up a fall quote.



Since this is a digi, you can manipulate the size.  So I made the quote a little smaller for my card.  Then, I cropped the leaves and changed up the sizes.  After I printed them and cut them out, presto magic...I had templates for paper piercing!!   Super easy. I outlined the edges to give it more definition. Red and Yellow is a fun color combo that I really like. But since I was going for a Season Fall Theme, I looked to my cranberry and mustard.  Haha..every time I think of this color combo I think of one of my college suitemates who was in a sorority...Chi Omega...whose colors were...Cardinal and Straw!  Boy would  the rest of us roomies get a kick out that whenever we heard it. Maybe b/c to us, it was still red and yellow. 

Yesterday, the third kid woke up, throwing up...the stomach flu has gone through all three kids.  I can't complain as it was the first time in my 10 years of motherhood. But I sure hope there isn't a reoccurance for another 10 years!  I need to make one more note book b/c Michelle (and probably a few others) are looking to see what is going to be tucked into the (best for) last's lunch box next week!

Yep! You know I'm watching, haha! Great idea for making templates with the quote. Love this week's freebie! Sorry to hear your third child fell victim to the stomach bug. Praying that'll be the end of it and your "Big Kid" won't get it too. :)
