ambrosia {thanks}

Happy Wednesday to ya! This week we're having some work done on our house and we're also getting our "usual" afternoon/evening thunderstorms (even a tornado warning on Monday night --OMW, the weather that night was very spooky...but God sure put on a spectacular light show for us!), so we've been having to hang out at home quite a bit but we're making the best of it. And since we're no longer doing school work, I've been a LOT more productive than I have in quite a long time, so that makes me happy. ;)

I've had my Ambrosia 6x6 pad for months but had never used it...until now, that is. I made this card for my oldest son (the one who keeps the cards I make him -lol) over the weekend and then realized that it fits in with Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge this week --kinda fun when that happens. It was inspired by a really pretty card I saw in the June issue of Cards magazine made by Betsy Veldman (she's another one whose style I just adore, and her style is so distinctive). I need to get dinner started, so I'm gonna be brief (imagine that!?! lol). If you have any questions about the card, please ask.

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
