Soft & pretty...

I had such a nice weekend.. Still a little busy but very enjoyable.. 
 I took a little trip to visit my parents out in Arizona... 
 I had such a nice time relaxing and just visiting with my Mom & Dad..

Well I am so excited it's my turn to host again this week over at
And I have come up with a sketch.  Nice & Easy...
You can use any theme you want or any color combo you
want, but all you need to do in follow the sketch.. 

So Here is what I came up with this week..
Something soft & pretty..






This little image is from Graphic 45,  but I bet you already new that..
I added just a little bit of lace.. What's a soft and pretty card with out
some lace..

Some seam binding and a some buttons and you have your self
a pretty little card...

I just wanted to throw in a picture of my parents cat..
It is the funniest cat.  And just as cute as can be..


Thanks for stopping by and visiting me..
I hope you enjoyed your stay..

Hugs, Linda
