A Thursday Surprise!

Hi there!

I know some of you have guessed what I'm doing today but for those of you who are wondering, I am one of the bloggers that Jill Foster asked to take over her blog this week while she's at CHA! Can you believe that?! ME? You have no idea just how thrilled I was when she invited me to do this! At first I was a little shocked, then I got a little nervous, then I finally landed at excited!

I looked through her amazing photostream, filled with gorgeous cards and chose one of my faves. It inspired me to make this card. . . .Sorry, just a small peek.


To see my entire card and the one from Jill that inspired it, please scoot over to Jill's blog here.

Thanks so much and Happy Thursday! :)
