Good afternoon! What a nice day we are having here at our house. If I could just get my throat to stop hurting, things would be simply perfect. :)

The card I want to show you is a little different style that what I normally create. As usual, I got up this morning, checked my emails, checked the social stream on Facebook (don't want to miss any important family news since that's where we tend to find out everything LOL), and then went to Feline Playful to check out all the challenges going on that started today. Do you like entering challenges? I love the index site at Feline Playful. All the challenges are listed by day of the week they start and then they have codes by them so you can see at a glance some of the challenge rules for the site. Whoever put this together did a fab job doing it.

So.... after checking out all the challenges that started today, I made a list and create the card I'm about to show you.  I used all MARK'S FINEST PAPERS AND STAMPS image and sentiment stamps. It's from the stamp set "RELAX A BIT". 

My friend, Sharon @ MeeMee's Creations, has this stamp set too, so I'm really interested to see what she creates with it! Would you guys like your very own Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps Stamp Set? You would? Hmm.... :)  I'll be giving away one of their FAB stamp sets in JUNE, so check back with me on June 5th to see how you can win. Not sure yet if I'll do a challenge to enter or just leaving a comment to enter... what do you think?

Ready to see my card?
