Here is a couple of Thank you cards. Again I used the Black and white with a splash of color challenge from over at Paperwings. I am still loving the Scor-pal too. LOL The scored lines add a little extra detail. (When scoring more that once where the lines will form a corner I like to alternate the scoring direction. Clear as mud, right? LOL I did the first line on the left side, rotated my card (90 degrees) and scored the bottom, then back to the left side and ended up at the bottom. This makes the intersecting lines looks cool.)

Stamp sets- Oh how and More abundance

Paper- White 110# and Black (TAC)

Ink- Pallete Noir and Cote d'Azure

Misc- Giga Scalloped Circle punch, Coluzzle cutting system, Coluzzle nesting circle template

Scor-Pal, misc ribbon

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. Can you believe May is coming to a close already? My mom and sister came down on Monday. They brought the kiddos a swing set. Hunter loves going high. Sister is not too sure yet. (It may have to do with her only really being able to hold on with one hand. The cast is supposed to come off next Thursday. Woo Hoo) But, by the end of the day she was yelling, "Go high!" LOL

Today's blessings-


** Peonies in bloom out front**

** Having Joy**

Until later~
