Claudia & Company Monthly Challenge #5

I'm feeling ookie-icky today, wish I could stay in bed, hee hee!
But I'm baaaack :)  and I hope you're all enjoying your TGIF!!!
:) Thank you!

It's time for another monthly challenge by
Here's the recipe:
The color Orange, Ribbon and a Button

My other challenges for my card ;)
- Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #79
- Charisma Cardz Challenge #40: Autumn Colors
- Cute Card Thursday Challenge #133: Make your own embellies
- Digital Tuesday Challenge #79: Ribbons and Buttons
- Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #79: 5 Layers or more

I so happily used one of Lori Boyds latest Sugar Stick image called "Grandparents"...
I'm sure that this adorable couple looks like a lot of Grandparents out there, but when my boys saw them they just screamed, "That's OUR Mama and Papa... when they get dressed up!!!" lol! My parents are more of a jean couple than khakis and skirts, but hey, it came pretty close ;)

I'm using the lil bit I have left of my famous October Afternoon DP 6x6 sampler pack! Have I told you how much I {heart} these sampler packs?!?! They last just as long, if not longer, than pads! They're the best invention ever!!!

Please be sure to visit the Claudia & Company Blog and DTs inspiring creations today!!!

Thanks for stopping by again!
Have a wonderful weekend :*)

Paper(s): October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" DP, Papertrey Ink Creme and Kraft CS, Prism CS
