I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Whimsy- cal Sunday

Yesterday morning I was trying to finish up my card for today and my main, GIANT light source died a very quick death....leaving me in the dark.  I felt that was a subtle hint that I was NOT to spend the gorgeous  day in the basement.  This morning I have a much better fluorescent bulb in my basement.  I really think it shows things in better color.  Yippee!  I made another card for the Make A Child Smile challenge over on the Whimsy blog.  I really hope that you will participate in this challenge.  There's Whimsy $$ up for grabs.  Even if you don't have a Whimsy image (which you should) you can download one for free to use.  Please check out the blog post I have linked above for details on that.   This card is for Brianna.  She likes toys with buttons so I figured she might like a card with buttons too.  She is also lives in Ohio....like ME:)

My card today is also for a few other challenges.  I used Inspirational Card Sketches #58 for my sketch and I incorporated some of the ideas from Lisa Johnson's newest challenge on her blog....Poppy Seed Challenge.
The challenge is to use buttons, polka dots and light moss (color...not actual moss:) on your card.  My "moss" is a bit dark not light.  I finally used some paper by Jillibean Soup that I bought in November.  It is actually Christmas paper on one side and the other are the 2 patterns you see.  THAT is an awesome idea for double sided paper don't you think.

Yesterday I used "Halloween" pearls and today "Christmas" paper.  I always was a bit behind...LOL

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Off to get ready for church!
