Thinking of You



Hello! Sorry for the brief absence. We had a lot going on this weekend. Got to spend time with my grandchildren and celebrated my oldest son's birthday. Also, with the help of our neighbor, we got one side of our new fence put in. Our backyard is enclosed with this old rusty wire fence and we are just now getting to redo that fence. We are installing white vinyl picket and it is so darn nice. We will try to finish it next spring...but at least we got it started.

Today's card is a simple one...and was created with the same cuttlebug folder that I had used on my son's birthday card posted last week. The card base was SU paper. I have taken the advice of SusieB (Sue Nelson) from http://www.heartprints.net/ and purchased the Beckett Expression 80 lb paper in the colors of Radiance or Iceberg for my cuttlebug embossing. I was able to purchase the paper from http://www.marcopaper.com/. The results are stunning. Be sure to visit SusieB if you want to be inspired...she is awesome. The sentiment on my card was from a collection of stamps from Stampendous. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday! And thanks tons for stopping by to visit me!
HUGS,
Vicki
