Merci = Thanks

Another quick post this morning! I am actually on my way to work but I wanted to post this cute card that I made Sunday! I used Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try. I will admit, I struggled with what to use as my image. I think I tried 4 different images before I finally found one that I liked. I also struggled with what colors to use and how to use them. Thank goodness I came up with something that I love. I used a rhinestone brad from the pretties kit to add a little bit of shine to the card. I also paper pierced the corners of the image so that it would look more balanced. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Nick and I are actually on a retreat with our youth group this week. I just happened to not get work off so I am coming in to town every morning. Oh well, I will at least have a couple afternoons and the evenings with them. Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!

Hi Steph!

Ok, so this is several weeks later, but life gets crazy, ya know? I'm finally getting back into the swing of things, and we're about to move...figures ;) Anyway, I just wanted to say that I LOVE your blog, and I think you do the most fabulous cards! Thanks for the sweet words about my owl card! I hope Jamie enjoys the goodies we sent and that she finds something in there she'd like to use!

Keep up the great work! I'll definitely be checking you out ;)
