An Exciting Month Ahead!!!

Today, as you know, is the first day of February.  Well, it is also my first day as a Guest Designer for Mark's Finest Papers, an honor I will have for the month of February.  I am so very excited to play with their stamps, their cardstock, their luxurious ribbons, and wonderful embellishments.....AND many of those things were used on this card.  The Spellbinder label die, the sheer ribbon, the pearls, the stamps, and the cardstock are all from Mark's Finest Papers.  Be sure to stop in to their store and give it a try.  You will be dazzled!!!

For those of you who actually read my blog entries, I am happy to say that my computer is cooperating today (knock on wood) and hopefully the gremlins that were bothering me yesterday have moved on to excite someone else's life for a while.

Have a wonderful day!  I hope to get a swim in this morning and then stamp the afternoon away!!!
