Card Patterns

I had to check out Card Patterns because my blogging friend Christi is the guest designer.  Anyway, when I saw this sketch
I knew I could just toss together a couple of the scraps on my table to make something - because Christi was very liberating when she said "the sketch is just a preliminary idea"
I had a few good friends over today for some crafting/celebration time and was feeling pretty blessed so I knew what sentiment I wanted to go with the "scraps" - you make this world a better place.  This card was easily the quickest card I have ever made!
Now, after a day of playing while my husband worked, I'm going to go fix some dinner before we head to church.
Grateful for this wonderful life,
Marie with a :-)

This is so pretty, Marie! Nice selection of scraps you had to choose from, and how fun that you had friends to 'play' with! ;) I wish mine had been a quick one like yours --I always take too long with my cards. ;( Great job with the sketch!
