Just Saying Hello!

Hello!

We've had some pretty crazy weather around here!  It rained cats and dogs the last two nights, and the winds were blowing as high as 60 mph!  So strange for AZ, but things seem to be quieting down for now.  I'm ready to get back to my beloved sunny days, that's for sure.



STAMPS:  Truly Appreciated (Hero Arts), Zinnia (A Muse)
INK:  Fresh Snow (PTI), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
PAPER:  Berry Sorbet CS (PTI), Sweet Blush CS (PTI), Linen Vellum (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Retro Diamonds Embossing Folder (QuicKutz), Self-Adhesive Pearls (Hero Arts), Upper Crest Border Punch (Fiskars), Berry Sorbet 3/8" Satin Ribbon (PTI)


Just wanted to pop in real quick today to share a quick little card that I made using a brand new Hero Arts clear set called Truly Appreciated.  I feel like this is an example of a simple yet elegant card - and it only took me about 20 minutes to make!  It could easily be mass produced using any one of the super versatile sentiments from the Truly Appreciated set.  I also created this for the Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge 49 as well as the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C21, which is to create a project using a pink color scheme.

There's still a few days left in that awesome blog candy giveaway over at the ABC Toys & Crafts Store Blog, so head on over HERE to check it out and leave your name on Mr. Linky.

That's it for me today.  I have to take a sweet friend to the airport this morning - she gets to go to CHA . . . lucky dog!!  Maybe I'll see if she'll slip me into her suitcase and take me with her!  LOL  Have a great weekend, friends!
