Merry

Happy weekend, all! We spent Thanksgiving with close friends and had a wonderful time. I also got some shopping done on Black Friday, how about you? =)


Today's card is dedicated to a sweet and wonderful blog friend - Virginia! If you know her, you know that she is always so encouraging and delightful. She love sharing her amazing talent at making cards and cooking with us and I always enjoy reading her posts.


I picked Merry for my card because she reminds me of Virginia. Mmmmm.... I'll have to try your cooking and baking in person one day, girl! =) Merry is stamped on PIT's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossing with a Curved Rectangles die using the out of the frame technique.


The patterned paper is from Restoration collection by Crate Paper and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  Virginia is celebrating her up coming birthday and is having a fun contest, check out the details here. Thank you so much for all your support and inspirations, Virginia! I am so happy to have met you! Hope you have a wonderful celebration on your big day and I hope you have many fabulous ones to come! =)

This card is also for Krafty Girl Challenge #106. The challenge theme is Thank You/Thankful/Gratitude. I know I didn't use a thankful-ish sentiment, but I am hoping the symbolic meaning of the card/intention will work for the challenge as I am truly thankful for meeting Virginia. =)


Have a beautiful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
