I'm grateful for so many things.  My family...a husband who supports my ridiculous hobby of collecting crafting tennis.
Oh, my tennis....
One playoff tennis match down....and two coming up.  My team last night was outplayed by a very nice team from another part of metro Atlanta.  Those girls were GOOD!  Way "gooder" than us! LOL!  My partner and I gave a great fight but went down to the better players.  All we could do was laugh as balls kept zinging past us!  But it was fun and that is what this social tennis is supposed to be about!  I am a very gracious loser when I know that I have been beaten by better players.

We are off for a day out of town to visit a very special relative (my kid's grandmother).  It will be a very nice day as the little grandkids love going up there!  We are all so grateful for her, too, and I will be sending this card to her next week.

This is another card made with Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for May.  This was a great kit for nice feminine cards but sadly it is sold out.  The stamp set is still available though and is a great one!

That embossed die cut frame was sent with the kit.  I didn't make it but would sure love to duplicate it!
I may have to give that a try....

I stamped the rose 3 times and then cut it and pieced it to give it some dimension.
Fun, fun, fun!

Have a wonderful day and find some time to create!

Happy Crafting!
