*Simple*

Good afternoon everyone. It's a beautiful day here in Calgary. It's not so warm (only 11*C), but it feels warmer than that with the sun beating down on you. I drove home with the car window partially open. Love the sunshine. I would rather have it cold and sunny than warm and grey.

I spent some time today packing up a good portion of my Christmas crafting stuff to take with me to an all-weekend crop here in Calgary. There are a total of 7 of us going together to this event. For those that know me, you know how difficult it is for me to craft elsewhere.... I am hoping to at least get a little bit accomplished this weekend. I don't want to have to unpack all this stuff and have nothing to show for it in the end!

I love the simplicity of the card I am sharing with you today. I created it to use as an anniversary card for my mother in law and her husband. The image is by Hero Arts (it's all one image... I just inked part in white and part in black). I used some black and white layers with the beautiful green Bazill cardstock and added a black and white polka dot sheer ribbon. What you can't see in the photo is that I added little dots of Stickles on the ends of each "petal" of the flowers.

Finally... a Thursday night I can sit at home in my comfy clothes and watch Thursday Night TV!!! WOO HOO!

Just lovely Nancy! Have fun at the crop...I think I would die from that much sitting mixed with this heartburn! Hey, when we meeting again (since I will never live down forgetting that one time!).
