Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend

Happy Sunday!  It's been a restful weekend. I have talked to the two contractors who will be putting up my patio cover and laying down a concrete slab to finish up the new patio.  Hopefully it will all be done by next week.  Just in time for Summer.

I was able to work on a few cards this weekend and I'll be showcasing them this week. My first card up this week is using a Sassy Studio Designs image.

I really have to figure a better way to photograph cards that a light in color.  This is really so much prettier in real life.
