Happy Friday! So happy the weekend is here and that we are FINALY enjoying cooler Fall temps here in the desert :) I have the day off from work so I have a breakfast date with my dear friend / colleague of mine, Diane. We worked together for 12 years at the hospital ~ she is PACU RN with 35+ years of nursing experience under her belt! Diane and my sweet sister Tina are two of the most hardest working women I know. I just wanted Diane to know how much I appreciate her so I this card for her:
I started with some pretty patterned paper from the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Collection then added a double layered label made using Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No.18 which coordinate flawlessly with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die templates. The sweet sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Blessed by You which is full of MANY sentiments and images.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge. For some awesome inspiration, be sure to visit the site to see what the DT has created!
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy your weekend. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Blessed by You, Very Vintage Labels No.18
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, Big Scalloped Circles LG, Big Scalloped Circles SMGrand Circles, Grand Big Scalloped Circles, Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Collection

You have no idea how much I love this card. On the quite I have returned to view this sweet card a number of times now ( best not to be too exact with numbers here. Lol.) I need that sentiment. It's one of the few WMS that I don't actually have. As soon as the exchange rate is better it will be mine. It looks so charming On the double mats. Really there is so much to love about this heartfelt beauty that I could carry on and on. So to not embarrass myself any further I'll leave it at that. You really do inspire!
