Do you love Cosmo Cricket? Come on, I'm a fan, you can tell me! I DOOOO love their papers---they are just fun and lovely and everything in between---I should scrapbook more---I'd REALLY love them on a scrapbook page. I actually HAVE been scrapping this week---I finished my 2008 Christmas album---I don't really show the photos of my scrapbooks, but it's done and I'm so grateful. I haven't finished an album in YEARS, so I'm very excited to have those memories down on paper.

I just have a quick card to share---a friend had some surgery this week and I wanted to get her a little pick me up---I found a begonia with "berry sorbet" blooms....isn't it funny how you see color in different words based on your ink 'supplier'??!! (ok, if you don't do that, don't tell me---I'm sure someone out there knows what I'm talking about!)

I used Smokey Shadow cardstock as my base and stamped the largest flourish from Fancy Flourishes in Vintage Cream across the front. I cut a strip of Berry Sorbet to go across the card and stamped the smallest flourish using VersaMark. I cut a small strip of Everafter paper (Something Blue) and scalloped the bottom. I placed that on top of the Berry Sorbet strip. I added the 'Praying for you' Sentiment from Damask Designs and then added three Berry Sorbet Vintage buttons with Vintage twine. I hope this brings her a smile!

Thanks for looking today~David is out of town this weekend. I usually end up staying up late and stamping---I still wake up early though, so that's not good---we'll see how much I get done. Enjoy your weekend~

You are on a roll, girl! Cute cards! Ryan is out of town also but I find myself going to bed at 9 instead of staying up and being productive! :) Have fun!

Very pretty! I love the white flourish stamped on the black background and then paired with the pretty patterned paper!
