It's Thursday!!! :-)



Good Morning!! *sigh* I am glad it is Thursday, I am looking forward to the weekend!! I can't say I have any plans, but I am looking forward to relaxing and finishing organizing my stamp area!!
I do have plans to read the third book in the Stephanie Meyer series....Eclipse. Okay, this is usually not my type of book...of all things Vampires!! LOL However, I was reading about the hype and thought why not try the first one. I am really quite impressed! She is a very good writer and it isn't blood and gore or scary. It is just a really good all around story that happens to about Vampires :-) It really is light and easy reading....at least for me.
Okay on for today's card. This is for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge. I just LOVE this color combo! I have never been a big fan of Sage Shadow...however, it is simply wonderful in this color combo!! I sponged just about everything. I also used Versamark on the Background stamps Floral and Sanded and then daubed a pink Pearl Ex all over. It gives it a real nice shine...though the picture doesn't really do it justice!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!! TFL!!!
Blessings
Vickie

Very pretty! Love those flowers with the pearls! I've been thinking about starting those books too, after reading so much high praise about them, so thanks for the tip!
