Sending Good Thoughts Your Way!

Hi Everyone!

First, I just want to say thanks to everyone for the Blog Love today.  I especially want to say thanks to Darnell over at djkardkreations for featuring me on her blog today.  I also want to say thanks to the ladies over at Colour Me...!, I received an honourable mention for my Thank you card posted earlier this week.

If you would like to have a look at that card, please check it out HERE!

So I just want to do a quick post before I head to bed (code word for watch Olympic Curling till I pass out!  Go Canada!).  Tonight is Hubby's pool night with the guys so I took some time to pull together a really quick card for a few challenges.

First, I took my inspiration from the Week 3 Spring Sketch on Create with Connie & Mary.  I am in love with banners so I thought this was an absolutely fabulous sketch.


I then thought about the Late Night Stampers Challenge Blog which runs a two week challenge and the newest one is to use either wet or dry embossing on your project.  This was right up my alley.  I love how white embossing powder looks on black so I decided that this would be my feature banner and would also contain my sentiment.

Finally, I was intrigued by the CASology Cue Card:

I love the BOLD patterns in the newest Kaleidoscope DSP from Stampin' Up!.  I'm not really sure if this will qualify as a CAS card but it was super quick and easy to make and from my point of view, there is a lot of "white space" as a lot of the DSP is being shown.

All that to say, here is my card for the evening:
