I Think I Could Get Used to This ...

But before I tell you what it is, I need to tell you to skedaddle over to my friend Alanna's blog and congratulate her on her 300th post and nearly 15,000 hits. She's got a great giveaway going on and wonderful cards to inspire you to boot.

And now, about my card. Take a look at that floral motif in the corner. I didn't stamp it. Rather, it's part of the paper design, and what you can't see is that it's flocked. Not only does it look great, it feels fuzzy and wonderful. All I had to do was layer my papers, stamp my monogram, and embellish with a length of ribbon and a few adhesive-backed pearl accents. So pretty, and so quick and easy.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Black cardstock; DCWV La Creme Matstack; Black ink pad; JustRite Damask Borders and Trompe Script stamp sets; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Kaiser Krafts pearl accents; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set.

It's Thursday again already. Friday tomorrow. Yea! The next few days are going to be busy. Bjorn and Mathias are staying with us until Sunday. For the third consecutive year, their daddy and Uncle Dusty are organizing our company's annual golf social. Thus, the boys stay with us while Cameron takes care of all the last minute preparations. On Saturday, Marv is going to play with them, and so, it will be just me and the boys. If all works out, I'm hoping to take them down to see my mom. A day at the farm would be good for them ... and me. I love to see them running around the same yard their great-grandfather, grandmother (me), and dad played in when we were their ages. I love that their roots run so deep.

After supper tonight, Marv took the boys and went to the golf course, which afforded me time to do a little stamping. If they don't come home soon, however, they will be lucky to catch Grandma before she falls asleep. I stayed up a little later than I should have last night and thus, am wiped out tonight. With that, I'm going to go take a quick shower and jump into my jammies. I hope your day was great. Until tomorrow, take care!

Such an elegant card, Kathi. I wish I could feel the flocked part. I bet that just adds to its elegance.

Thanks for the blurb about my candy Kathi. You're so sweet.

Now for your card. I wish I could see and feel it in person because it looks absolutely magnificent. I'm totally in love with it and am dreaming of how that swirl must feel.

It sounds like you have a busy weekend coming up. Enjoy.
