You're Too Kind

So did ya'll enjoy your weekend? I sure did! I spent Saturday shopping with a friend of mine, and ended it with watching the movie Blindsided. Talk about a fabulous movie!! LOVED it. Especially knowing it's a true story.

I really enjoyed stamping today too. My friend Laurie has made some gorgeous, gorgeous cards embossing black onto dark gray and black. I love this charming image from Verve's Thankful Accents set and thought it would work well embossed on PTI's Smokey Shadow cardstock. The circle frame was stamped with Cranberry Adirondack Dye Ink onto white cs. I added the word "Thanks" (Celebration of Thanks - Verve), and a flag with a sentiment from the Verve set Thankful Hearts. I added a bit of bling with some Rhinestones and pearls, and some decorated edges with some Martha Stewart border punches.

That about sums it up. Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping my friends!!
