TGIFC17 & Fab Friday 71 - You're Wicked Awesome!



Typically Friday's are reserved for my "freestyle Friday" posts - where I show you a card or project that I've made lately that isn't linked to a challenge, but when I saw the new theme for TGIF Challenges this morning, I had an idea right away!  The colors for this card are inspired from Fab Friday.  Mindy picked a great Autumn combo that's perfect for a back to school theme!

 
 
I am already over summer and ready for fall!  I love the colors, smells, food, corn mazes, decor...  And New England is the best place on earth to see the colors change!
 
Another thing about New England that I have discovered over the last year or so living here is the certain things the residents say - like lobstaa & Baaston...
and "wicked awesome"!
 



 
What kid wouldn't love to get a card from their mom and dad their first day of school that says "you're awesome!" or in Rhode Island - "you're wicked awesome!" ?
 
When I saw the new Project Life Seasonal Snapshots set from the upcoming holiday catalog, I immediately thought of how I could use "wicked" for my New England ladies.  Either I'm not that into Halloween or living in New England is rubbing off on me! :)  This set is adorable and covers all the upcoming holidays! The Old Olive stitching on the inside is from the set too - I love it!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wicked awesome day!

  5. Very cool! I love the pencil background and the layered wash tape! Growing up in CT (also NE) we never said wicked but totally knew what it meant when another NE-er would say it! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  7. Holly, this card is fabulous! I agree with all who've admired your clever stamped background and I love the sprinkling of stars you've added too. The frayed trim and washi tape are great additions. I'm so glad that you played along with us at Fab Friday!
