a simple thank you...

T.G.I.F!!!

So glad that it is Friday:)

Last night it took me almost 2 hours to get home...ugh...although I was super tired by the time I got home, I wanted to put together 2 cards....I'll post the 2nd card tomorrow.  Today I have a simple thank you card...it took me...hmmm....10 minutes?

I oh-so-love those Stampin' Up Long Notes....I do especially love the So Saffron ones...such a happy color.


It's been way too long since I inked up my Skipping Stones Design stamps....Timeless Textures is such a versatile set.  I used it here with gold embossing powder...I think I've had that embossing powder for like 15 years...LOL.  

The butterfly is Jenni Bowlin and the sentiment is EAD Designs Co-Branding with Paper Smooches, it is from the Thank You Sentiments Stickerz set.

Any fun plans for the weekend?  I'm going to visit 2 fab bloggie friends...I'll post pictures on Sunday:)
