hi




Happy Hump Day! This week is going slow and fast at the same time. Is that possible? Well, this week feels that way! Here is card where I am trying something different. I am using one of American Crafts new stamp sets that I picked up at Archiver's. I used a pure graphic style for this design. I'm not sure if I like it. The rhinestone brads are now making me think of Texas (giggle)! I used the letter 'hi' because I had to remove them from another project. Instead of tossing them, I added them to this card. Somehow, I lost the dot to go over the "i" so I used another brad. OVER-BRAD! :)

I've been working on lots of projects and will be able to share them with you sooner than later. One is a major project that will involve you, hopefully! That's all I'm telling until it's time for me to tell! :)

I hope you enjoy your Wednesday and thanks so much for visiting!
