Howdy!

We had a dusting of snow last night, way too early for my comfort. The prediction is for a bad winter so maybe this is an omen starting with the snow so early. I sure hope not since I am usually tired of winter by January 1st and ready for spring. LOL! I had to travel to Indianapolis today for work. We were training new people in Indy. I was glad the snow didn't prevent us from going. I just prefer to get those things over with especially since all the planning was complete.
So on to my card for tonight.
I used a Bugaboo image and sentiment. The embossing folder I used in the background is Distressed Stripes and I embossed Coordinations paper which I then sanded to get the multi-colored effect. I inked the edges with of the image and sentiment. The flourish is from MFT and I added the ribbon to go with the sketch I used. I am entering these challenges:
I was supposed to have gone to a Copics class tonight but it got cancelled since not enough people signed up. Secretly I was kind of glad since I am tired from the trip to Indy and needed to catch up on email after being away from my computer all day. I do love getting the blog entries by email but if you go away for the day they really pile up. Hope your week is moving along. Happy Hump Day tomorrow!  And thanks for stopping by!

Donna,
Your card is adorable! I love cards that are cutesie enough for girls but still would work great for boys too. That's a tough one to do and you nailed it here! Thanks for sharing with us at HIMCR.
I meant to mention last time I was here that I noticed that you're having an issue with your badges/blinkies along the sidebar re-sizing themselves. ~~Got side tracked by the Colts talk.~~ Anyway, I found an easy fix for that (after it happened to me too) and you can see the steps for that here:

Please be sure to leave me a comment if this works for you. I'd love to know that I was able to help you!!
