*Been A While*

Another couple of beautiful days here in Calgary.... I love the sun and warmth! I see a downward turn in the forecast by the weekend, but I will enjoy each day that is given to us. I love the sun and warmth LOL!

It's been a while since I created this card.... I used to post my cards in the order in which I created them... but lately I've been doing more challenges so I have to rearrange the order of my cards to accommodate the challenges. If I do a challenge while it is current, I want to post it while the challenge is still current.

I number all of my cards when I save them to my hard drive (started with 2009-001 with the first card I made in January) and when I add in a challenge card, I actually renumber all the cards that are already saved on my hard drive waiting to be shared on my blog. I suppose I could leave the numbers and just post them in whatever order, but this way it's easy to see which cards have been posted and which ones haven't.

Anything to make my life easier LOL

Anyway, the card. I needed a card for Dianne for her birthday a few months ago ... gave it to her at a CalGals gathering. I have a huge stash of cards, but I know she reads my blog so I didn't want to give her a card she'd seen before.

I created this card using some paper from The Paper Loft as well as some Whisper White and Bravo Burgundy cardstocks. The main image is by Impression Obsession (coloured with my Copics) and the greeting is A*Muse. I did the border with one of my EK Success border punches and added some striped ribbon I got in a Ribbon Share a year or more ago. I used the MojoMonday 79 sketch as my starting point.
