I'm taking a vacation!!

Before I start my post today I wanted to announce that I will not be blogging for a while as my DH and I are heading out of town!! We are so excited to be able to get away it has been a very long time since we had a vacation! 

Our vacation is with a purpose - to do more than rest and relax though : ) it's a very GOOD reason! I can't say why now but I will share more about it all when I return.  Until then I hope your 2015 is off to a wonderful start and you are happy in your heart and getting inky!!



I created this card for my BFF's mom who recently bought a new home.  I used my bran new!! "Tick Tock"  stamp set and coordinating die from Papertrey Ink. : ) which means.... I used some NBUS!!



Darnell, blogland's favorite word smith, is hosting yet another amazing challenge at djkardkreations!! You will not want to miss the fun. Darnell is funny and sweet and always ready on-line and off to take the time to say hello and make you feel like a celebrity has popped in! : ) Please do consider visiting her outstanding blog.  You'll be so happy you did.

That is it for me! I'm off to finish my packing.  Have a wonderful week!!

Patti

Supplies:
PTI cardstock
SU pp "Be of Good Cheer"
Tick Tock stamp set and coordinating die by PTI

What a fun and amazing card!! I am sure it will be super appreciated!! AS for you going on vacation - all I can say is GOOD FOR YOU!!!! So excited that you get to spend time with your DH being together!! Love the way you use twine - it always looks so effortless! When I try it looks forced and not natural like yours!! You are a pro!! Have a great vacation!!!
