Good night Wednesday

Wanted to thank Michelle Peak for her awesome card as a guest designer on my blog the last few days and you did a wonderful job and aren't we all ready for some spring to come!!! it still feels like winter here...grrr...but hopefully like the news said it is suppose to get warmer....hehe...even if it is 40s and 50s it is much better than seeing some light snow and cold!!!

I will be here tomorrow after I get some things done and caught up it has been a hard few days with the new meds and still waiting on some medical recovery yet and tomorrow is my Faithbooking post so please stop by tomorrow night. I have a funeral to go to tomorrow and some stuff to organize to get done so that is why the post will be late.

Thanks for your support and patience and thanks as always for stopping by.

I made a card and although I am still dissatisfied with it I am going to show it to you...I ran out of tape which is not a good thing so I had to be creative till I get to the store again! It is a very simple card with printed paper background, I stickled the buttterfly and put it on a sticky back green ribbon...the pink (I did not like this pink for this card but didn't have another color) background cut underneath the stamp whitecard stock inked on edges... and then I put a pop up underneath to get the sentiment more noticed.

You didn't think I would forget to give blog candy did you?...hehe...well check it out and you will get the Flourish Rub-Ons that I brought just for this occasion and just comment on my blog about my creation that I made down on the comment post and let me know how to reach you by your email address and I hope you enjoyed what I made. Blessings and have a great time and don't forget to go to the next stop Denise and thanks again for stopping by as always! :) K

I love your comments and let me know what you think! :) hugs!
