Bloggers challenge #93 ~ It's good to be home

This GREAT SKETCH is by Lisa Somerville! I'll be making a few more with this layout, simple and gorgeous! I always love going to stampin up events to see my girlfriends. As excited as I am to see everyone while I'm away, I got the opportunity this morning to spend some time with some girls from my team and it totally rejuvinates me. I'm left grateful to be associated with such a wonderful company and feel blessed to be surrounded by inspiring women who make me a better person, just to know them.

Getting back to this week's project, i had some fun with my big shot and kept cutting dies... I layered them on a piece of textured cardstock and cut that out. Then i finished my "grateful for you card" and know that I need to get this one in the mail to one of my fabulous girlfriends. Although I'm grateful for all of them, I don't send the handstamped cards as often as i would like to, so maybe I'll start today and just send this one.

Thanks for looking and if you are interested in seeing other cards using this sketch, check out what some of my girlfriends are doing on the bloggers challenge group! You'll be glad you did!
