Hello and happy Friday to you!
Whoo-hoo the weekend is finally here!  What are your plans for the weekend?  I'm planning on staying in my PJs all day tomorrow and crafting my day away.  I have so many projects going on and would love to cross a couple of them off my list!

I'm sure that most of you know Madison of "Funky Cards" and I'm sure that many of you are familiar with her I Feel The Love project. If you aren't, you really should hop over to her blog and check it out.  Each month Madison selects a special person in need of encouragement and uplifting.  She then does a little write up about this person on her blog and encourages crafters to create something special just for that person.  Personally, I think I get more of a blessing by participating than the person on the receiving end!  I so admire Madison for putting her creative talents to such a wonderful purpose.  This month, Madison is collecting cards for a sweet young lady named Olivia.  Olivia is 9 years old and recently lost her mother to cancer.  You can read more about Olivia's story here.  Here's the card I created for Olivia...

* Fun paper is from the "Uptown Flair" paper stack
* Scalloped mats are from the Cricut cartridge "Elegant Edges"
* I used the new "Anya Lifts" stamp from "The Greeting Farm"
* Sentiment is from "Pink By Design"
* Sentiment mat is from "Spellbinders
* Hot pink ribbon is from "My Craft Spot"

I colored my image with my Copic Markers and paper-pieced the balloons with scraps from this cute paper stack, "Uptown Flair".

* I am linking this card up in the challenge going on over at Cooking With Cricut - "I Feel The Love"

I hope this fun card puts a smile on Olivia's sweet face!
Ok, I'm off to get a few things accomplished around this house so that I can craft tomorrow without a guilty a dirty house is going to bother me when I'm in the "crafting zone"!  Have a great weekend and I'll see you soon.

Until next time,
