life.





I'm a challenge-a-holic and they help me get through my stash.  Here's a great example, I picked up the 12x12 pad of Pebbles Cottage Living and haven't used it until I designed this card:

cardstock:  bazzill/ash  paper:  pebbles'/cottage living  stamps:  verve/words of wisdom  ink:  ranger/archival/black

The 12x12 papers are great to fussy cut blooms & such like I did for today's card.  The center panel with the petite grey/white blooms is from my 6x6 pad and I left on the top polka band, rather than cutting it off.

I'm a sentiment-a-holic and absolutely LOVE Verve's Words of Wisdom.  Awesome quotes and mix of fonts.

Evidently my card needs to go on a diet...I may have neglected to make it skinny:



Thanks for stoppin' by....here's to a happy Friday!  I'm sure I'm racing around doing last minute tasks for the shower tomorrow.
