A quick Thanks . . .

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

I just got back from the most wonderful scrapbooking retreat where I got to see some "old" friends and make a few new ones.  I went to a place called Memories on Marshal . . . and let me tell you, it is the most AMAZING place to go.  It is in a couple's home and they treat you just like family, but also pamper you.

So I want to share a card I just did for the wonderful couple from Memories on Marshall in St. Louis.  Sheryl and Carl are the BEST . . . and after spending a GREAT weekend with them at their home for the 3rd time, I wanted to send them a simple "Thank You" card.  And knowing they are Iowa Cyclone fans (same as me), I decided to use the colors gold/yellow and red with accenting black.  All the paper I used is from The Paper Temptress . . . Patricia has the most AMAZING papers.  I LOVE to use them all by themselves because they really don't need anything else to make them look GREAT.  

Anyway, here's how my card turned out:

Papers used from The Paper Temptress:

The mica/metaillic papers have a shimmer, almost glittery without the glitter, to it. The Yellow Ruche has aTcrepe paper texture but much stronger like 80# cardstock.  And you can see from the picture the texture of the Vintage Silver Lustre.  If you want more information on any of the papers I used, just click on the name . . . I have them linked directly to their page at The Paper Temptress.

I really hope Sheryl and Carl like this card of Thanks. :)

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
