I am so glad it is Thursday!  
Hopefully I can spend some time in my art room this weekend.  My DH has tomorrow off, so I may go to town and do some shopping while he
babysits Schmitzy!!!

I have a thank you card tonight for a friend that gave me a beautiful candle.  I hope to have lunch with her next week and give it to her in person.

I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the background, SU! dp, a digi image from Fred She Said, colored with Copics, accented with Liquid Applique and cut out with a nestie.  The heart is a Sizzix die and the sentiment is from PaperTrey.

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Loves Rubberstamps - Have a heart

Thanks for stopping by!  I need to go feed Schmitzy a late evening snack!
