March Card Chain Challenge

Hello. Remember me? It's been awhile again. Today is the first day in a very   l--o--n--g time that I didn't have to leave my house. It felt great!

Among work (aka stress) and other things (birthday, not so great doctor visit, etc.), I was also busy attending CKC Louisville and the Indianpolis Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival. I have lots of cards and things from those weekends to share with you soon.

Now on to business... This sweet card from Donna Mikasa in HI arrived in my mailbox yesterday for Deborah's March Card Chain Challenge! The sentiment is a good reminder. I really need to put this card somewhere I will see it every single day!

Donna's cards always look so beautifully colored online, and this one is no exception. It is even more impressive in person! Just lovely.

As if the card was not enough, Donna also included a lovely My Sentiments Exactly stamp set. And finally, Donna has the most perfect handwriting I have ever seen. Such flair. Thanks so much, Donna!

Here is the card I sent to Marcy, which arrived in MA yesterday. I'm so glad she liked it! I was really happy with the way it turned out, even if the picture below looks crooked.

Stamp(s): Hero Arts (F5293 Bicycle, CL280 Elephants, CL180 Happy Greetings)
Ink(s): Tsukineko (Tuxedo Black); Ranger (Shabby Shutters); Copic Markers (Assorted)
Paper(s): The Paper Cut (Pink Lemonade/Fossil Scallop Circle Layered Kit)
Other: Royale (Crochet Thread); Bazzill (Ribbon); Prima (Flower); Flower Soft (Sweet Pea); Cuttlebug (Embossing Folder)

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!
