{100} thanks

I made this late last night and if I can get this posted in time, I think I'll be flyin' in just in time to add this to the other contenders over at Taylor's blog.  I nearly forgot, but I just had to try!!  She's celebrating her 100th sketch and is giving away a few sweet prizes.  Her stamps are soooo cute and I'm on too-tight a financial leash this year, so it'd sure be awesome to win some!  Her sketches are always really great too --did you enter?

Not sure why, but the center pearl along the bottom looks a different color in the's really the same as the other two.  And, no, you're not seeing things...I did use the same patterned paper as I did in the card shared in my last post.  I thought I was going to be using both of the same patterned papers for this one, but the card ended up morphing on me {as so many of them do} and I went with just the pink.  Not quite the ideal color match, but for some reason I kinda liked the contrast.  But then again, it was really late. lol

Well, time's a tickin'...the kids will be wanting their Friday morning special in a little bit...chocolate chip pancakes --or maybe they'll choose German Pancakes today-- and I need to get this posted and linked up if I want a chance at winning some darling stamps. ;)  

OH!  And speaking of winning some darling stamps --I have to give a BIG shout out to my blogging friend Patti, who was wonderfully blessed when she WON THE MOTHERLOAD OVER AT PAPERTREY INK earlier this week {the announcement is still on their home page --check it out}!  I was soooo happy and excited for her, I got lightheaded when I read the INCREDIBLE news {guess it's a good thing I didn't win, or I might've hurt myself -lol!}!!  Congrats again, Patti!! 

Hope you have a happy Friday!  ;)

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