Some people...

Hello, and happy Sunday!

Before I show my card, I need to apologize to some of you!  I recently decided to look
in my spam folder, and OH MY GOSH!  I am amazed at how many of the
blogs that I follow via subscription were in this file.  Also, in the file were
hundreds of comments by some of my readers.  I spent nearly an entire afternoon
telling the computer that you're not spam, so hopefully, I'll get your comments, AND your feeds
so I can comment on your beautiful creations!  So sorry if I've been negligent, while
you've been stopping by here faithfully!

I had a bit of time to create over the weekend, and was so excited to finally get to ink up some of the Unity Stamps that I recently ordered.  They've been sitting untouched for a month, and I really love the sayings, so I decided to play along with one of the Unity challenges.

For this challenge, I could follow either one of the sketches, and/or the color theme.
I chose to follow both the color theme, and the sketch on the left.



Here's what I made:


This card uses the Unity Stamps "Lasting Thoughts' stamp set.
I had some of the Authentique 'Renew' paper pad left, and the colors were perfect
for this challenge.

Hope you are staying warm, wherever you are.  We had several inches of snow, that were topped off Friday night and Saturday morning with sleet, ice, and fresh snow.  Ready for spring
to make it's appearance!

Thanks for dropping by,

Patti J.

I certainly believe Abe Lincoln's comment about happiness. I really do think it is a choice! Your card is beautiful. I'm SOOOOO looking forward to Spring, too!

Your card is so pretty in the lovely spring colors, Patti! And good job using that NBUS!! The same thing happened to me with comments all of a sudden ending up in my Spam folder. I think they must do maintenance or updates or something when these glitches happen. You know, they can never leave well enough alone! Have a wonderful week! I hope it warms up for you, but not so much that it floods!! Hugs, Darnell
