Live, Laugh, Love

Changed up my style a bit for today's card, but it's still simple, just leaving the paper and stamped image to do the talking!

Paper: Notecard (Hobby Lobby); Cardstock (PTI); Patterned paper (a friend)
Ink: Memento; CTMH Dye ink; Vintage Photo DI
Stamps: CTMH; PTI (sentiments)
Other: EK Success punch

That lovely patterned paper was sent to me, along with lots of other wonderful pieces, by my friend Jacqueline, the paper expresses her style perfectly, so be sure to go and visit her blog.  And that gorgeous stamp set was given to me by my wonderful friend and neighbour, Lisa.  She is always surprising me in little, and sometimes, big ways!  Her style is definitely more fun and you will be missing out if you don't pop into her part of blogland for a peek!

Hoping you have a wonderful weekend.  My apologies for being so short and to the point today but I am feeling a bit under the weather and it frustrates me no end to not feel well, so let me go and see what concoction I can put together to inject me (figuretively speaking) with some energy and to get this sore thick throat to go away and kick it back where it came from!
