Kind Words

I know...can you believe it?  I'm here a second day this week?  I made this card on Sunday so I thought I'd share it with you today.  This is a Verve set called "Kind Words."  It is one of those sets that I bought a long time ago yet hadn't used so I decided to pull it out. 
I adore the card and think this week's Sweet Stop sketch is perfect for it but I'm super unhappy that I ended up stamping the sentiment just a little crooked.  I thought I had it but clearly that isn't the case.  The words are still lovely and it doesn't change the intent though.  The paper is from MME and is called Blink of an Eye.  I'm also going to enter this into the Shopping Our Stash challenge which is to use a sketch...any sketch so my card definitely works for that challenge! Oh, and some BIG news over HERE.  Are you excited for me 'cuz I sure am!

You may or may not know but our area has been contending with a wild fire.  They are expecting to get it all contained today and start the mop-up work today as well.  Over 20,000 acres burned and over 70 structures burned.  We went to drive the route of the century bike ride yesterday and in one spot it is right next to where the fires were.  Very scary stuff!  I'll probably make a scrapbook page or two about it.  God sure has been working in amazing ways this last week!

Well, I'm off for another ride this morning so I should finish this up.  We are taking Costco in this after noon so if you hear something moaning it is probably my wallet...hahaha!  Smiley from millan.net

Lorie, this is one beautiful creation. The colors are so warm and inviting, the sentiment is wonderful, and I love the image! Congratulations on your BIG news! They are lucky to have you, and it looks like such a fun place to do some serious shopping! Once my company leaves, I'm going to spend some quality time there looking around! Way to go, dear friend. So happy to hear that the mop-up is starting. Such a terrible thing, but I'm glad that the fires will finally be contained. You have been in my thoughts and prayers. Will look forward to your scrapbook pages. Hugs...

What a bright and cheery card! Love it.

And I remember century rides. I haven't been on a bike in over 10 years. :(
