Thanks


When I saw that Bev from Happy Dances was the MUSE this week, I new I had to play along. If you haven't been over to her blog, I encourage you to do so.  She's super talented and quite candidly one of the kindest bloggers in blogland.   I love the color combo on the card (but am now sitting here noticing that I left off the green!).  I decided to mimic the frame with a rectangle that I cut out on my rarely used Cricut.  I stamped the background several times using my PTI stamps and then die cut the sentiment in white.  This will be going to a co-worker who was sweet enough to spend time with Collin last week when he came to work with me for a few hours. Doesn't he look adorable with his hair gel :)!  Love that little man.

Collin is rather handsome! He looks like a very nice young man. LOVE your take on the Muse! I've been eyeing that stamp set, and now... I can just feel my resolve crumbling, lol! This is just beautiful. And dear Lynn, thank you for the kind words. I'll admit to getting all teary-eyed reading your post. I'm so glad we're friends. You're the best. Bev
