You're Special




I meant to spend the day organizing my craft room but I landed here instead. Do you ever go to your craft room to put things away and suddenly you're making a card? How does that happen? :-)

Mark's Finest Papers, Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #73 is to do a one layer card. I am using a
MFP  stamp set called Just Dandy. This is one of the many sentiments included in the set.

My embossing folder is a Sizzix  called Birds and Wreath Set. The folder is turned upside down to accommodate my one layer and I like it either way.  I added a butterfly brad after removing the prongs that stick through and then popped on...didn't want them showing on the inside.
