Thank You with a Flourish

I can see I need some practice on taking pictures outside - I got the shadow of the bow in the front of the card - hasn't digital made a world of difference in taking pictures - I might even have pictures of my children if I had digital - but that was an unexplored world when they were young. Technology sure has evolved and it keeps evolving. My daughter had a small Canon Powershot with her last week end - sure liked the size - maybe my next digital - of course - I would feel guilty getting a new one if my old one still worked fine. Mother's guilt - I guess you never get over that.
I have brownies in the oven baking - Betty Crocker frosted brownies - the best mix around and then I doctor it - today instead of water - I used coffee and threw in some carmel and chocolate chips. Yummy - I take the brownies to the neighbors - each family gets half the pan. They love it.
Today's card is based on the sketch at Card Positioning System. It was a fun sketch - and I knew I had the best paper to use with it. Looking at the photo - I need some more glue on the strip on the strip on the inside. Off to find
Patterned paper - Kaiser Scrapbooking (Waterberry Collection) the base of the card is patterned paper that had that scalloped frame on it - double sided paper - so the inside is beautiful also - the flowers were fussy cut from one sheet of paper
Ribbon - Lasting Impressions
Pearl Swirls - Prima
Pearl Brads - Paper Studio
Rub On - Karen Foster Design
Pop Dots by All Night Media
Looking at the photo - I need some more glue on the strip on the inside of the card. Off to find some glue to slip underneath the strip.
I need to go finish mowing my lawn and maybe pull some weeds. We will see how much energy I have. Everyone enjoy your Sunday - do I have to go back to work tomorrow???
