Hi Everyone,

I know it's been a while, but I've had a lot going on.  I recently went to my very first Crop and had the best time ever!!!  I'm also participating in my first "swap".  It is a mini album swap and I've been working feverishly on it so hopefully I'll have some pictures to show you soon.  Today though, I'd like to share a card I made for a friend who just retired from work.  She has been a dear friend for many years and life at work will not be the same without her. 

It is just your basic 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card with a 4 X 5 1/4 pink mat.  Layered on top of that is a beautiful piece paper from the DCWV French Country Stack, cut and embossed with the Spellbinders Fleur de lis rectangles die.  I added some pearls and flowers from my stash along with a tag I cut using the We R Memorykeepers Scallop/Cloud Corner Chomper.  The sentiment was typed on my computer.  Inside, I used a pink mat and a white mat and wrote a personal note.  My friend Linda loved the card and I hope you do too.
