A Dream Come True

This morning when I woke up I had a dream come true!  Nichole Heady, the owner of Papertrey Ink, whose stamps I LOVE and have been using constantly, featured my card on her blog!  Wow!  What an honor!  I'm elated!  You can see my card on her blog here.

When I made that card, I stamped half a sheet of the Guide Lines II in these same colors (and pattern) so that I could cut it up and use it to make several cards. This past week I made a second card using this same sheet and I have enough paper left to make one more. I love using the Guide Lines II stamp set! So many possibilities!  

I love the aqua mist color!  It's gorgeous!  When I put this together I wanted a sentiment that fit the softness of the card.  I don't like to make sympathy cards so I never have any on hand when I need them.  So, for this particular card, I pulled out the "So sorry for your loss" sentiment from "Vintage Picnic Sentiments" and added it to the bottom. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I appreciate each of you who take the time to visit and also for those of you who comment!  I hope you have a great day!
