To a Special Someone...

Hi everyone.

     I hope you are having a great week.  I can't believe it is already Wednesday, but I sure am happy that it is...  Three days down, and just two and a half to go.  :O)  Yep I will be a VERY happy girl come Saturday at 1pm....  lol...

     I really wanted to share this card with you as it isn't at all like what I would usually go with.  I have been seeing a lot of stamps on YouTube that look like ink smudges or paint brush strokes, so I wanted to get one and see it I liked it.   I bought this set from Avery Elle and just played around with it.  I think used some black Bazzill cardstock to mount my image and some carefully placed twine to the front of my card.  I like how it turned out, but I really wish I had some different inks to work with.
     Speaking of 'Happy Birthday' cards I want to wish my Sister-in-law a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Today is her Birthday and she is an awesome Sister-in-law and a great Mom to three beautiful children.  I am sure that she is a fantastic wife as she is married to my baby brother.  lmbo...  Anyhow, Kara I hope you have a great day and I hope that we all can get together some day soon.  Love you.
     Ok guys, have a great day and I will talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G
