Thought for the day -

Good Evening....Well I got through the day and now I have just one more week of long hours at work.  Working Saturday really shortens that weekend! I did manage to get 1 card made today.

I have another black & gold card for you today.  I think I have a new favorite in the paper line, haha.
Today I am using a beautiful digital image from Sugar Creek Hollow.  Tracy has some beautiful vintage images on her site.  If you like this image you can get it over at Crafters Digital Art Center.  If you have never been to this site it would be well worth your time to pay it a visit.  Priscilla ( from Midnight Madness) and her team have done a wonderful job putting together this site.  If you love digital images then it is definitely the place to be- there are currently 35 group members all offering digital images.

Ok back to the card.  My card is for this weeks MOJO Monday challenge.  This was a great sketch and worked so well with my image.
Is this paper not the best, lol! I love gold and black together and The Paper Studio has put together the best pad of papers- 20 designs in all!! I LOVE IT. LOL
