Finally a card to share!

I finally created something again today! I'm still not quite feeling up to par yet, but I had a card to make for tonight.   A bunch of my girlfriends came over to my place tonight for our monthly crafty night and I had to get my swap card done...I finished it just in the nick of time! Nothing like leaving it until the last minute!  lol  :)

Our swap theme this month was to use a digi image of our choice and one new item in our stash. I used two digi images and the bubbles and bling are new.  The bubbles are a new embellishment for me to use and were quite a bit of fun to play with.  I think they give a neat look and I may just have to buy some more of those!  My background was made using a new stamp (Stripes Pattern by Hero Arts) that I received in the mail yesterday from my friend, Yvonne.   Thanks so much for the goodies, Yvonne!  I love them!  I was attempting to make the background look like decoratively painted walls.  You know, when they mask off the walls and paint different vertical sections.

I had a great time tonight with the girls.  So nice to have everyone over for a bit of crafty fun.  The yummy treats are always a nice bonus, too!  lol  :)   Thanks again, so much, to Catherine, Louise and Deborah for bringing the treats.  I didn't quite finish my project from tonight, but I'll likely finish it tomorrow, plus I have a few cards from friends to share with you.  So, stay tuned for those, too.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
