today in card making

Every once in a while you are handed an opportunity to just have fun. Today was one of those days. My friend and paper dealer/enabler/goddess, Kim Holmes hosted a 12-hour crop today as a fundraiser for her daughter's church mission trip. Although I was not able to attend for 12-hours, I spent a good portion of the day laughing, crafting, and really getting a recharge on my crafty batteries. I needed that. 

And here is the result:
