The Most Wonderful People in the World!

Thankful Thursday!

Today we had the great fortune of driving from Wilsonville Oregon to Corning California. What a beautiful drive with such gorgeous mountain scenery!  I feel so thankful to have this opportunity to be visiting my sister country! Everyone I met today was so kind and helpful, just like in blogland.  I hope that you might be inspired to share something you are thankful for with someone else today.

For my card I have chosen this simple yet elegant valentine card. I found an interesting challenge at  called the 10 minute dash! Well that seemed pretty impossible but as so many other things have proved me wrong this week, I did it!  The rules state you can set out all your supplies, so, with that and an idea in mind I started, and this is what I came up with.

The red cardstock paper is from Micheals, the embossed white paper is from a packet from Walmart, and the pearl hearts are from the dollar store.  The design is mine! It took me 9 min and 16 sec. Wahoo! So cute, yet simple, easy and done in a short time. Perfect!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
