Hello Monday

Hi there!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I sure did.  We finally had a weekend where we didn't have a whole lot going on.  We got a bunch of stuff done around the house, spent a lot of time outside and got some professional photos taken of the kids.  (Can't wait to see how they turned out!)  My sister, Tami, and her family were down for a visit, so we ended the weekend with a big family supper at my parent's house.   My mom is such a good cook...I'll never pass up a chance to eat one of her home-cooked meals.

I even managed to squeeze in a little time to make a card.  I've been collecting quite a stash of patterned paper lately, but rarely ever use them.  So I was determined...I must make a card using some patterned paper. ;)  I ended up using some of my favorite paper right now from the Lily Bee Lovely collection....it's is absolutely gorgeous paper!  The perfect thickness and it's double sided....which is always a huge bonus to me.  I'm not very good at pairing up patterned papers that go together, so using papers from the same collection makes it a cinch.



I used a sentiment from the Hero Arts Truly Appreciated stamp set.  It fit perfectly inside the EK Success Journal Plate & Bracket Punch.  And that text paper is from the Making Memories Slice 8x8 Ledger Pad...it's a great staple to have in your paper stash.  I saw they have it here for a great price too. :)  And finally I embellished the card with one of my handmade buttons.

Hope your week is off to a great start!  Thanks for stopping by!

Wow Kelly! I always love your cards and this is no exception. I'm with you on the pp. I have a ton and don't use it. I love what you've done and you've enabled me too! Gotta find that punch now! :)
