Thanks a Bunch

Hi everyone! Just a quick post tonight. I needed a thank you card the other day and wanted to use one of my new Flourishes stamps. This one is from the Zinnia Clear set and I colored it with Copics. I was inspired by a bouquet of Zinnias I saw at work. They had a vibrant orange center with bright yellow tips. The beautiful, silk ribbon was given to me by Vanessa. It is a deep, rich green and so pretty. Thank you, Vanessa! I love everything you sent!

I'm hoping to have a card to share tomorrow from Card Camp. Thursdays are video days with Kristina. I've viewed it already because they put up the new posts at midnight, Eastern time, which is 11:00pm here. She talked all about balance when making cards, and boy do I ever need help in that area! I love learning to become a better cardmaker! She showed us 3 sketches, so I'll be creating a card using one of them.

Okay, it's late so I'm heading to bed. . . .night! :)
