NBUS Challenge #7 and SSS Wednesday Challenge

Hello, friends!  I'm just under the wire as I play along with Darnell's NBUS Challenge #7 where the theme is "Anything Goes" as long as you use "Never Before Used Schtuff!"

I'm also playing along at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes."

I recently purchased this pretty sentiment stamp set from Inspired By Stamping called "Just For You" and I couldn't wait to ink it up!  (I'm adding it to the Customer Gallery while I'm at it.)

I also inked up my old Paper Smooches "Reflections"  stamps...honestly not sure if I ever did ink them up before. (Based on the border of my card, you can see they've seen lots of ink now!)

I am enjoying the holiday weekend and preparing for the big week ahead...returning to work, kids returning to school (two incoming juniors in high school, one incoming freshman, and one entering middle school).  On top of that, sports and extracurriculars, cross country, dance, pep band, choir, stage crew.  Weekly music lessons (drums, guitar) continue.  My Labor Day is spent resting and prepping for the impending labor ahead!  Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by!
