I couldn't wait to get my work done this morning to tell you about yesterday. I had the most delightful day because I got to meet Sharyn Polesel, a fellow card maker and blogger that lives somewhat close to me. We met at Cheddars for lunch and she is lovely. She is so very nice and we had a great time talking and getting acquainted. I hope you have a chance to drop by her blog http://mycraftyplace281.blogspot.com/ and check out her beautiful cards. She is a whiz with pattern paper and is on some design teams. I always say card makers are the greatest people and she sure proved it for sure! I forgot to have someone take our picture until we were in the parking lot but hopefully next time.

Todays card was made with Viva Inka Gold. I used a light green and light blue and sponged it on the background that was embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The blue came out looking light gray so I mounted it on gray cardstock. My husband's cousin lost her son to a heart attack very unexpectly and this card is for her. The shine on this card really doesn't come through in the pictures. I tried several shots to show it but just know it is so soft and has such shine to it. Be kind to one another.
