Special Moments

This weeks There She Goes challenge is Kraft, pink, & Ivory. The ribbon is ivory and the image is matted to ivory but it looks pink. Ok, don't look too close at the image.

This weeks challenge on Phindy's Place is Spring. I figure what better than a nice cold margarita. I am trying something new of doing more CAS cards and I like it. I got some wonderful news that a card will be published in SNR magazine on March 13. I want to encourage you all to try and would love to hear if you do. Just remember you are your worst critic because the card they choose I wasn't sure if I liked it or not but entered any way.
