Big Thanks

I have been Really busy this month. I am not even sure where January has gone. My card that I am sharing with you today I made for a friend/mechanic. My car has needed a lot TLC this past month and it is a Big relief when you have someone you can trust, especially when you are not sure about cars.

For myself creating a "Man Card" is really challenging. I used the set "Loads of Love" and did water coloring which is also a challenge for me. I really like how this card turned out.

So Thank You, Denny!
