Crafty Secrets Card

Hi, I so glad it's Friday! It's been a very, very busy week I made 30 Father's Day cards in 2 days! And it will be a busy weekend but that's ok. Saturday we are going to a garage sale that I was told about from one of my husband's co-workers (super nice lady :-)). I guess someone passed away and the family is selling thier stamping stuff. Am I evil for being excited about the sale? Hum, for sure I'm sad that the person passed away but excited about the stamps. Do I haggle? Will I be riddled with guilt? Hum? Maybe they loved thier stamps and will haunt them. Eeek better not think about it :-( I'm looking forward to spending Father's Day making a special dinner for my husband. He REALLY deserves it with a house full of girls and a crazy dog.

Anyway, I have another card to share. This is a card I made last week. I've been trying to make cards that are totally different than my cutesy style, also this is my first card with so much distress ink. I am very new to the distress thing, scares me a little. So this is my version of an elegant lady card. So serious huh? So maybe a card you would give an older person or a fancy person, yeah Fancy! Let me know what you think, would love your input. Until next time.
