Happy Wednesday! I had a special occasion for this week's challenge card which makes it even more fun to make. Last week, I bought tickets to take my ten year-old niece to see Hannah Montana in concert when she comes to Greensboro, NC in November. I'm really excited and hope that she is too. I made this card to give her to let her know we're going. My last concert was an Amy Grant show in the mid-90's so I'm a little out of practice when it comes to concerts, but I think it will be great fun to take Helen to see a singer she enjoys so much. A good friend of mine suggested that, to really be "cool Aunt Hopey," I will have to dress like Hannah Montana before the concert. I think I will compromise and get a mullet like Billy Ray instead! Ha!

I had a nice surprise when I opened my mailbox yesterday. There was a Take Ten, Autumn edition, magazine there. Well, I knew right away that I must have a card published inside because I don't subscribe to Take Ten anymore, although I do subscribe to Stamper's Sampler. So, as you can imagine, I stood right in the street flipping the pages until I found my Turtle Tots card on page 73. What fun! Then, that night, I was reading the magazine before I went to sleep and was shocked to see that all three cards on page 106 were Stamping Bella teacup cards that I made! Wow! My name was at the top of the page and everything. I'm glad I didn't see that when I was standing in the street, there's no telling what I would have done! LOL!

Papers: SU Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, dp, and PTI SS White
