{A quick card}

This is just a quick post---I mentioned yesterday that I had been to a bridal shower on Saturday morning. What a blessing it was to see ladies "showering" the bride with gifts to fill her new home with her husband. I truly love this part of our culture. I remember giving a baby shower for a girl from England several years ago and she commented that people over there don't do this----now they may do it now, but they didn't at the time. What a sweet tradition it is to help a couple start out in their new life together.

I only had a few minutes for a card and this is what I came up with---I had started to use Beate's Sketch, but I messed it up, so it's a similar sketch, but not quite right! I used more Target dollar spot paper---I really don't use that very often, but I have lately. I would have used Basic Grey paper if I had some, but I don't yet---the Going Grey just didn't seem right. I'm off to a soccer game in a few minutes---ETA: We won, by the way, so that was fun---we stood in the rain for over half the game, so that wasn't fun, but we made a memory!!

Have a blessed day~
