Hello

Hello!

**Yay! This card made Top 3 in the DeNami Designs Spotlight on 6/29/12**

Two nights in a row of crafty time! Yay! My DH had to work last night, so after the little was in bed, I snuck to the craft room for a bit! It is late, so I am going to keep this short and sweet as possible. 

My focal image is from DeNami Designs and the stamp is called Decorative Crest Circle.   I used alpha beads to spell out the sentiment in the center. Pretty fun right?!?! The doily at the bottom was hand-dyed a light shade of gray. 
My absolute favorite embellishment on this card is the crochet circle from my friend Jessi.  She won't let me hoard them, but it's sooo hard not to. They are sooo beautiful, so it makes me happy to use them! She does absolutely amazing work. 

Inspiration for my card comes from the DeNami Designs Color Challenge
As mentioned, short and sweet. I need to get some sleep! I have a very active little one who will be jumping at the bit to get outside as soon as his feet hit the ground. 

Till next time,
~Tammy~
