Thankful For You / NAC#45

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Saturday. It's been a rainy, yucky, day here in the DMV but I have a bright, cheery, card to share with you today. I spent the evening stamping with my Stampin' Buddy April and we got out my box of Sneak Peek items and had a little fun.

I used the sketch over at Nacho Average Challenge for my inspiration. I have to say I didn't stick exactly to the sketch this time. My card started out with the sketch in mind but kind of got a mind of it's own and veered off course just a little. Luckily, I know my friends over at NAC won't hold it against me too much.  Here's tonight's card-

And here's the sketch I used-

Wanna know a secret? I actually made the card in the portrait instead of landscape mode. That's just how it flowed for my eyes first. But then I turned it to the landscape orientation and decided I really liked it that way too-

To be honest, I wasn't sure I really liked the card at all at first, but then it started to grow on me a little more. I'd love to hear which way you like it the best. Here's a close-up of the sentiment which along with the card base and the DSP is a sneak peek for you-

It says "thankful for you" and I really am so thankful for all of you that stop by and see what I'm up to. Here's another thing I'm Thankful for...Little Nacho-

Isn't she just too sassy!?! She's 6 weeks old today, but believe it or not "Little Miss Priss" had this picture taken when she was only 2 weeks old. Hope she made you smile as much as she does me!!!

Well, that's all I have for you today. I hope you liked my card and I hope it inspires you to try something a little different. If you liked today's card or have questions, I hope you'll leave me a comment in the space below. I love hearing from you and read all of your comments. They really do make my day! If you'd like to +1 or Pin today's card, I've put those buttons on my blog for your convenience. Friends and Followers are always welcome too :)

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by my little corner of the world. You are very appreciated! Till Next Time-

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.

Be Safe,

  3. Very pretty card! But I want to talk about granddaughters!!! Love the cute pic of your little sweetie. My little one just turned 5 months and growing up very fast. And she has the cutest smile. I am sure you love being a grandma as much as me. It's the best thing, isn't it!?!


Thanks so much for taking the time to share a little love with me. I hope you find this blog to be as much of a blessing to you as you are to me. :) Be Safe- Shan
