1st Try!

Here is my first try at the swap card I'm making. I'm using the set Because of You. This is based on my friend, Jennifer's card. The colors are the same and a couple of other things. I do like my first try but I think the white panel is a little too wide and if I make it just a might bit smaller it will balance it out a little. The little ladybug on the flower is something Jennifer did...isn't it a cute idea?! I'll be working on this some more today so that I can have it all done and ready to go. Stamps: Because of You. Carstock: Rose Red, Gable Green, Whisper White. Ink: Stazon Black, Close to Cocoa, Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Marigold Morning, Gable Green, and Bashful Blue.

So, guess what I finished up yesterday? I finished up and transmitted our taxes. So glad I'm done with that! I'm happy to say we are getting money back...everyone all together now...YAY!!! I know, I know, we should make it so we get that money through out the year and now loan it to the government but we don't, so we are just happy!!! Oh, and did you know you have one extra day to prepare and file your taxes this year? Up, you do. I don't recall why but the IRS extended the deadline by one day...aren't they generous? :0)

I hope you all have a marvelous Monday!

Love your card, Lorie. Lucky you that you get money back. We thought we did, but forget one thing that caused us to have to pay. Phooey. We get one extra day 'cause the 15th is on a Sunday.
