Take Note

Happy Friday!
Yea! The work week is done...hopefully I can spend some time in the studio this weekend.  We recently moved to the country, as a result, I decreased my work hours and arranged to work at home 2 days a week.  This week was crazy.  I ended up going to town 4 days a week, my 2 normal days and one day for our belated Medical Home Christmas party because we couldn't find a date where most could attend and the other day for a doctor's appt.  There is a backlog in pathology, so it is going to be 2 weeks until I get the result of my biopsy.  I am going to take the positive thinking route and believe that there is nothing wrong.

I made today's card after dinner.  It is for the Critter Sketch Challenge and it gave me the opportunity to use two of the new Memory Box dies that Margaret gave me for my birthday.

My birthday gifts are the 2 in what appears to be pink, but is actually salmon (at least on my monitor).  Aren't they lovely?  I may end up adding some jewels before I send this off...

The black cutout is a SU! die from Sizzix.  The stamp is an oldie but goodie from The Greeting Farm.  I colored it with Copics.  There are actually 4 shades of purple, but they aren't showing up well in this photo.  The text is from Papertrey and the the punch is from SU!  I popped out the salmon cutout and the bird, so it is very dimensional in person.

Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by and until next time, Happy Stamping!!!
