That is what my Face Book Status Says anyway with a few more details in the title!! LOL!!!! Farewell to Donna and Sarabeth I'm gonna miss you guys!!!!!!

Make a NON Halloween Card using

Halloween Papers and Colors

Happy Friday Everyone!!!!

Did you miss me???  I know I missed stamping and blogging and I am so so so so so so so so super excited for it to be Friday!!!!  My Week has been non stop go go go go go go go go and go go go go go go some more I truly think this may of been one of my busiest weeks ever in my 7 years of being a Mom!!!!  I am so bushed and I would love to tell you everything that went on this week but I just do not have the energy to type it all out again!!!!  LOL!!!  Lets just say it was quite the week, very busy, stressful at times and I am so glad Friday is here and I do not have 1 single place to go today!!!!  YYYYYYeeeeeeAAAAAA!!!!!!!  I had to get my 2 year old in and out of the car 26 times yesterday and today was not a whole lot better I felt like a chicken with my head cut off LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So it is Friday and I have for you my Feature Friday Card for The Character Cafe!!!  This week it was my turn to be the part of the girls that are to do a pre-assigned challenge that is hosted by one of the DT girls as the lead girl.  Piali is our lead girl this week and she gave us the challenge to create a NON Halloween Card that uses Halloween Papers, and or Colors on it. 

So I went straight to my newest Paper Pack Eriee by Basic Gray and I found this paper with Pumpkins on it and then my mind went to Pumpkins turned into Crystal Coaches by Fairy God Mothers (Cinderella) and that took my mind to Princesses and that made me think of The Character Cafe image Princess Ali.  So anyway I came up with a Birthday card for a little girl who's birthday is the day before Halloween and she loves Princesses so her is my NON Halloween Birthday Card using Halloween Colors or Papers on my card.

First though please make sure to visit all my UBER talented team mates once you are done here seeing my creation for the week!!!

This is the last week I get to list Donna and Sarabeth they have left the team for various reasons and I am sure they probably did not do cards this week but I wanted to get to list them one more time anyway!!!  Sarabeth, is super creative, and is the sweetest DT sister and I was really hoping to get to know her better so I am sad to see her go and Danna is also a very sweet DT sister and so mega talented she will be missed very much!!!!

Now Below is my card for the Week.  I used Princess Ali which is one of my favorite TCC images I think she released my first DT release with TCC back in June!!!

I used SU! Card Stocks in Lavender Lace, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Basic Black, and Pumpkin Pie.  The DSP is Basic Gray Eriee pack.  I used my Labels #1 Nesties and my big shot to make the popped up shape layers and the pearls are from my SU! Pretties Kit.  I used the CB folders Flueir De Lee, and D'Vine Swirls and the ribbon is my favorite type sheer shimmery organza ribbon!!!!  LOooooove it!!!!!

I colored Ali Up using V000, V04, V12, V17, R00, E00, E95, RV10, G03, RV35, and C2 Copics to color up Ali and her Princess Ball Gown.  This view also shows you the Shimmerz View on her mid underskirt and her top.  She really shimmerz and sparkles and is so pretty!!!!

O.K. I am off to bed and yes I am sleeping in tomorrow until at least 8:15am I am so tired and worn down I think I can feel myself getting sick which is not good cause with no family in town and no sitters available to us I can not afford to get sick!!!!  So say a prayer for me I have to stay healthy!!!  Well I talked about the Headache Flu/Nausia Flu going around and I have had that off and on, but I can still keep going with that even though you wish you could just go to bed but I just can not get any real sickness right now!!!!  LOL!!!!
