I can not tell you how much I have longed for this Friday to come! Haha! After all of the trips and in service days that we have had on Fridays, I was really starting to look forward to having today off! Yippee! :) However, the bad part about today is that I have bladder infection and it could possibly be kidney infection as well. I am not sure if it is kidney infection because I have never had it before but I am positive that it is at least bladder infection! It really stinks! Anyway, I am thankful that I have Taylor's Cupcake Challenge to cheer me up this week!
Today's sketch was super fun and easy for me! I knew what I wanted to do right away! I have had this single stamp from Stampin' Up! since we demonstrators were allowed to pre-order from the catalog but I had yet to use it! When I saw today's sketch I knew it was time! :D I used my nestabilities to cut out the ovals and I then embossed "Thank You" on the Baja Breeze oval. I also decided to use more of this beautiful Stampin' Up! Parisian Breeze Specialty paper. I was originally going to use three different strips but decided that I wanted to keep it looking simple so I kept the outside pieces the same! I really love the elegance that this paper can bring to a card and I added to that elegance by using the new white ribbon that you can find in the Dress Up Ribbon Originals set. I also added some pretty pearls from the Pretties Kit to the corner so that I could have some more white on my card. Well, I guess that pretty much sums up my card!
Well, that's it for today! I hope that you enjoy today's sketch. Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see her card. You also will want to check out this week's Featured Sampler. :D This week's sampler is Pam Varnell! I have adored Pam's beautiful cards since I first started stamping so I was excited to see that her cards was picked! Congratulations girl!

ETA: Ok...just ignore my horrible picture quality today. I have found that I take much better pictures when I am using my photo tent at night. I am not really sure how to solve this issue either. Any suggestions?
