Gorgeous Card and Some Goodies!

First off, thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments yesterday! I appreciate them all! Today is a much better day. The basement is drying up nicely. I have the dehumidifier and three fans running, and the new sump pump is working just fine. Thanks again everyone!

Next, I want to show you a GORGEOUS card that I received yesterday from my two Divalicious friends, Queen Diva Sue and Diva Deb! Isn't it spectacular?


Sue and Deb are my two diva girlfriends that I get together with to create. We spend time in the Diva Den (Sue's studio), and we try to do this on the first Saturday of every month. Well, just this past Saturday, I spent time at home with my husband and girls instead, especially because it was the last weekend of the winter break from school. Sue and Deb played around with alcohol inks! Sue and I were completely inspired by Tim Holtz's blog, and Sue bought a lot of fun new goodies so that we can be like Tim! Since the Divas missed me so much, they made me a gorgeous card to tell me that they were so sorry that I wasn't there! Isn't that sweet? Check out the card front. Is that fantastic or what? I love the big brad with the rub on! Love it Divas! Thank you!

Next, look at these two goodies that I picked up at Target in the $1 spot. I got these on Monday, but I didn't have a chance to post them yesterday. The ribbon is adorable. The first one is sheer (love the hearts), the next one is velvet, and the bottom one is glitter rick rack. How cute! Then, how could I resist self-adhesive foam flowers? How fun are these? Gotta love those dollar bargains!

Well, I'm working on finishing up a scrapbook two-page layout, and then I hope to create some cards. I hope I get to all of it today! Thanks for stopping by!

What a nice thing for your friends to do! It came at a good time too. So sorry to hear about your basement troubles. Having never had a basement, I can only imagine what it was like to find the bottom level of your house filled with water. I'm so glad that the new pump is working and things are drying out! Hang in there! Big hugs too you!

I followed Tim Holtz's 12 days also and played with the alcohol inks. I used metallic paper and foil.(posted on my blog). I'm wondering if you have found "glossy" paper vs. cardstock. I love the outcome. Thanks for his link on your blog. Lisa
