Merci for a great weekend

Ian and I made it back about 5 pm this afternoon from our Saskatchewan Easter adventure. We had a great trip and had 2 turkey dinners. One on Saturday at my Dad's and one on Sunday at my Mom's. We missed the snow that fell in Calgary last night as it was melted by the time we got home but, I did drive for an hour in white out conditions and lots of wind between Swift Current, SK and Walsh, AB. The biggest event of the day will cost me about $300 this week. A big truck spit up a rock (probably 1-2" in diameter) that hit my window that caused it to crack out in perfect circles for about 6-8 inches round. Glad it didn't come right through the window or we would have been stuck in Brooks.

I made this card at Nancy's at the beginning of March. It used the Sale-a-bration set Merci. I like it however, the pink paper in the back is actually a patterned pretty in pink from the Berry Bliss collection.

Stamps: Merci - SU
Paper: purely pomegranate, pretty in pink, regal rose, whisper white
Patterned paper: Berry bliss
Ink: palette noir, purely pomegranate, SU markers
Accessories: petal pusher flowers, scrapbooking sally brads, pretty in pink tafetta ribbon, paper piercer
Coloring: SU markers to watercolor
