Happy Thoughts

Thursday is upon us! Another week is almost finished and as usual I am WAY behind on my crafting! People in this part of the country have a saying for that... "so far behind you think you are ahead..." If that is the case I must be hanging out about July 4th of last year... Looking at it that way, I am ahead! :-)

We have had a wonderful few days catching up with family. It is really a shame that it takes the death of a loved one to bring all of your extended family together! The littles have grown so much and many aren't "little" anymore... Has a way of making me feel VERY old! lol

Speaking of old... (clever segue)

I created today's card for a recipe challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. The recipe calls for 3 designer papers, 2 die cuts and 1 charm. I met this requirement with 3 papers from a recent Fancy Pants Designs purchase (It's the Little Things Paper Pad) and Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs. The charm came from my stash. (Sorry, I can't tell you the brand...) A detailed product list follows the card.

Thanks as always for reading and have a great day!

Black and white is always a neat look. I should try that along with other ones like red/white and blue/white.
