Hi my friends! How's your Friday? Ready for the weekend? I recently joined a new challenge at modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com. Every Wednesday they start a new challenge and then at the end of the challenge, they pick three winners who might have the opportunity to win some good stuff. This challenge is extra fun because you can use any vendor's products, even though the "Administrators" (Contributors, whatever they're called) for this group are from Gina K Designs. At least that's how I got to know them. They are good people, and I'm so happy they started this!
OK, this card uses paper I received in the Simon Says Stamp Holiday 2013 Card Kit, believe it or not. (Doesn't look like Christmas on my card, though, does it?) The good thing about most of the paper or cardstock in this kit is that it is two-sided, so you have a choice which to use...and that can be a hard choice! The layers are super nice, and they go together nicely, but the top layer is extra special, because it is WOOD paper! Actual WOOD! That's pretty neat! I found it to be very easy to work with -- it cuts nicely and also does a good job handling ink from a stamp. The black embellishment was in a gift bag from a dear friend, Anna Jernigan, who sent me some goodies when I was down and out with a broken leg last year. She has a heart of gold! The sentiment is from Gina K Designs's Vogue Vases 2 stamp set by Theresa Momber. Love that set! Theresa's another dear friend who sent me these stamps when I was recovering from my break. I have some dear Angels in my life, for sure!
OK, that's it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate your comments and your visits very much. They keep me moving forward on this creative journey. Have a good weekend!
