Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller


Good afternoon....I have a 2nd post for ya today.  I think that must be a first! haha.  I didn't want to miss this weeks challenge at Midnight Madness and I thimk I am in just under the wire.  I loved the sketch this week and I really think I brought on the bling! My cards are usually very simple so this is a lot of bling for me.

I just love this fun image of Mrs. Comfy.  She is one of the wonderful characters over at Phindy's Place.  Phindy's illustrations are so much fun.  I made this little birthday card for a co-worker and Mrs. Comfy actually reminds me of her...but I don't think I will mention that.  I seldom show the inside of my cards but they usually duplicate the sketch and the inside of the cards simply says Party!
I've used Basic Grey dp from the Nook & Pantry collection, assorted ribbon, rub on flowers and gems to accentuate them.  I glazed the ballons and Mrs. Comfy's shawl with diamond glaze.

Thanks for visiting me today and I will see you again tomorrow.
