A note of thanks

I'm finally back to update my blog! So sorry to be gone for a month. We had spring break with a short trip out of town and then visitors. And of course, this is in addition to all the daily life activities of preschool, PTA, meetings, and training for my 10K next Sunday. I'm so pleased to report that I'm ready for the 10k and I've now lost 61 pounds since September! Anyway--here's a new card using new goodies! Photobucket I stamped the butterflies (from Beautiful Butterflies) onto the new Winter Wisteria paper, using Winter Wisteria ink. I then colored them a bit (not very neatly :) )with Copics. The frame (from Pretty Peonies) was stamped and cut out, and then I stamped the sentiment (from Happy Trails). The ribbon is also Winter Wisteria satin. The cardbase and scallop layer are Royal Velvet. I LOVE Winter Wisteria!!! Thanks for coming by! Melissa
