Thought for the day -

Hi!! I finally have gotten back in my scraproom. I have been blog hopping like crazy since One World, One Heart has started. I never knew there were so many amazing blogs out there and so many wonderful artisans!! If you are not familiar with OWOH see the post on the top of my blog and be sure to register for my giveaway.

Todays card is for the Friday's Sketchers challenge and this weeks sketch was fabulous for what I was trying to create. My step-daughter is a member of her high school's choir and their big fundraiser is coming up. They are holding a coffee house with a silent auction on Feb. 12. Each student is required to get donations from local businesses for the auction. Since the event is only 2 days before valentine's day we came up with the idea of a husband's valentine survival kit! We are hoping to include candy, movie tickets and a restaurant gift certificate.

The card I have created is a pocket card and will hold the movie tickets. Don't you love the itty bitty stamp from Karen Lockhart. I received my order on Tuesday and finally got to ink this one today! Susana has the new Karen Lockhart stamps and they are great! I ordered a few others so I'll be busy this weekend!

Did I mention the theme for this years coffee house is Movie Madness. They are doing music from the movies. This should be a fun night. I think this card is so appropriate for the giveaway and the theme of the coffee house.

Well that it is for now. I'm off to watch a movie with hubby. I promised him I wouldn't spend the whole night up in my scraproom, lol.
Don't forget to sign up for my blog candy.
