Thoughts of You


I'm here to make a quick post this Saturday morning. My card is for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. The queen is Susie aka PaperPunchScissors and I love her work. I chose this card to case. About the only thing alike is we both made a hinged filigree card.

For sure, this card was a test to photograph. I
barely have it standing on those fragile 'legs'.   Yes, there is a back to this card. If you look closely through one of the holes on the left side, you can see it. :-) I carried it outside to photograph instead of using my tent or card studio and I'm not so happy with the photo. White is a bit hard for me, anyway.

Off to a ball game trip later this afternoon. It's a night game, which I like best. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

My card is entered into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge--Anything Goes.

this is so pretty Benzi-a great tribute to this weeks Queen-I agree about trying to photo white cards-and this one was so fragile-maybe a frog would work-you know the ones all over blogland that lots use to hold their cards

Absolutely glorious! Have not seen these dies yet, and feel I must have them at some point. :)

Yes, white is so hard to photograph, let alone a card standing on one leg. Ha ha.

Love white cards in person, not so much on a computer. Makes me rethink what I make, actually!
