hello

Good morning! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good! My ankle is still limiting what I can and cannot do. I was crafting last night and had to finish up my day in the craft room because my foot was so swollen it was uncomfortable. Craziness, I tell ya! Today, though, I'm going to do some exercising...nope, no jumpy around aerobics but some upper body and ab work. I can't sit around forever!

Today's card is a card I made real quick to send with an A Muse Studio catalog that I was sending out. It is super simple but I had been wanting to try a line frame for quite some time. I only messed up once which is pretty good for me! The flower and 'hello' are from the Kindred Spirits set. While you can't tell from the photo I used shimmer chalks on the flower and in real life it is all shimmery and pretty! The ink I used is Papaya and the cardstock is lichen. All products used for this card can be found HERE in my a|s store.

Alright, that is it for today. This week I've got some cards for ya from the regular list of suspects as well as a new company (to me) thrown in there (not DT stuff just for fun).

Have a wonderful Monday! Today is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24.

I really like that line technique. I just very rarely remember to use it! Shame on me, as it is so elegant. Beautiful card, my friend! Sorry to hear the foot is still swelling :( Have a good day, my friend - hugs!

Sorry to hear about your ankle. The card is so fun. I love the border. So easy to do yet adds so much to the card. I hope to get some cards made this week.
Thanks for the scripture at the end, so much needed here.
