Thank you for your support...

Sunday again, eh? Where did the weekend go? Wow. Why can't work days go by this quickly? :)

Today, I am playing along with the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge. The inspiration colors were burgundy, white, and tan.



I also decided to use this week's fabulous Mojo Monday sketch. It is just divine!



And here is my card:


This card is for my Pastor. I am a firm believer in thanking the people who support you. Whether it is a prayer or a kind word or helping around around your home when your hubby is deployed or even just talking to you for a bit when things aren't going well. There are tons of people in my life (and yours,too, I'm sure) who day in and day out are there for you. My goal is to start letting these people know how much I truly appreciate their support and the sentiment on this card speaks EXACTLY to that! :)

Well, that's all for me. I hope you are having a lovely weekend! Laters...

What a lovely card, Keva. You are so gracious in your awknowledgement of your Pastor. This totally translates through to your card as well. Your color combo is so rich. I reckon you nailed that sketch challenge for sure. Isn't that TH embossing folder so effective? It has totally made the SJ cardstock. What's your secrtet from keeping that ribbon from freying? Beautiful job!
