Thought for the day -

Good morning all!  After a long absence I am finally back.  I have been putting in lots of overtime at work (quarter end-UGH!) and school work, cub scouts and now fall is here. With fall comes allergies in over drive!! I managed to make 1 card this weekend and worked on some altered paint cans for my upcoming craft show-between naps.  My allergies are real kicking my butt!

Todays cards uses my new stamps from Gina K.  I've been admiring her stamps for sometime and went a little crazy with my 1st order- I ordered 4 sets!! My card today features a couple of stamps from the You are Not Alone set.  This set is beautiful.  I love the sentiments in this set!

My card is for this weeks challenge over at the Etsy Inspired Challenge.  This week they are featuring Pegasus Maiden shop which specializes in some very pretty hair accessories.
My inspiration comes from this piece:

I love this piece! It's in my favorite
colors-black & white!

Here is the card it inspired-
Very clean & simple- 1 dp, 2 colors card stock-black & white. I've used my cuttlebug and the dots folder, my Martha Steward lace doily punch and my nestie circle die  The black & white ribbon is from Making Memories.  I used black rhinestones in the flower centers to give it a little touch of glitz.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope to be back again soon, lol! Enjoy your week.
