Happy Monday!

One down, four to go! Then we will have another weekend to bask in!

First of all, to any who prayed for Melissa's day to go well - thank you! She had a wonderful day, very much likes the new job, the people she is going to be working with, and the facility itself is overwhelmingly beautiful. Tami, today's first day on the job ring was the cute black one with the white stripes through it! (By the way chicka, we have some beads for you!!!)

Next, I just have to say that I've done some blog hopping the last few weeks, and I am so amazed and impressed by the wonderful folks out there that share the same love of paper, ink, stamps, ribbon, etc. The talent that I have seen is just incredible - God is indeed very good! I am reminded how good with every page I turn in "The Shack", which is what I am reading right now. I highly recommend it!

This card is Cloud Nine Designs Cardstock that I purchased at O'Dear's. The stamps are Angel Company, and the punch is a Martha Stewart border punch. The ink is Color Box Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan), which I stamped and distressed the flower and all paper with.

Hope you like it!

I hope to have time to play the OCC Challenge again this week, but I have a ton of paperwork to do. It was a lot of fun to do the last couple of challenges. Many times, I'll come out and sit at my desk and not have any inspiration for a project. The challenges give inspiration, and a reason to be creating! I enjoy swaps for the same reason!

Happy Tuesday, hope to see you all tomorrow!

Oh, I like this alot! I like the layer of lace with the ribbon, and the way you punched out the two sides on the sentiment and added the hardware.
