Turning out to be a great week!

I love it when life goes as planned.
Often I feel like someone is giggling as they throw a wrench in my best laid plans.
I try to go with the flow, but sometimes it just isn't that easy and occassionally not pretty.  
Which is why when things go as planned I am grateful.  
The beginning of the week felt like everything that could go wrong did go wrong.
So I am estactic that this weekend is going great! 
What is so great you ask?

Well, today my daughter, Lily, busted her booty at her playoff soccer game. 
 Did they win?Nope. They tied.  
Now they have to win tomorrow to make it to the state playoffs.  
BUT (yes,I am starting a sentence with the word but), Lily ran hard, fought hard, and was aggressive.
Who could ask for more?

Yesterday I found out that I made the Gel-a-tin's Design Team.  
I tried out for this team on a whim, hoping that they would notice that my stamping 
skills are as good as my daughter's soccer skills.  They noticed!  Woo Hoo!

This is the card that I designed just for the Gel-a-tins DT call....

Stamping on Washi Tape was not as easy as I had imagined it would be.  The tape is slick!
I had to stamp the sentiments a few times before getting them lined up (and not smeared). 
Love how it turned out! 

Now we are off to double Halloween party. Kiddos in the afternoon. 
Adult bonfire tonight.  The costumes are ready. The food has been cooked. 
It is time to have some fun!

I think the rest of this weekend is going to be just as great!  
Hoping you have a great weekend, too!

This card is definitely unique. Love the staggered, torn edges on your stamped washi tape. Congratulations.
