Blessing.... ♥MMSC57♥

a favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness. What a beautiful sentiment. Isn't it? One of my favorite Melissa Frances rub-ons. This card is for this week's fabulous sketch over at PriscillaStyles home of the Midnight Madness Sketches. I LOVE this sketch. There are actually 2 sketches this week to choose from. I chose the more fancier one. I am loving these Maya Road Mini Kraft envelopes. They are so fun to work with.

For my card, I used some October Afternoon papers from the Fly A Kite line. As well as some seam binding ribbon, Prima Swirls with clay roses, MS punched butterflies, 2 paper doilies, glitter and some brads. Love this color combo!Here is the Sketch:I will be back later with another card using a MR Kraft envelope. I can't get enough!!

Finally, yesterday I was talking to myself, {which I find myself doing more and more of!} saying "This chair feels a little loose" Next thing I know my 4 yr old son, Antonio, goes upstairs and comes back down with his Handy Manny tool box. Takes out his tools and starts "fixing" the chair! I couldn't resist taking these photos! He is too much! Well, back to my house cleaning!! See you later!!Hugs...

Your colors and dp are so pretty and those little magical touches you add just stunning...the ribbon, swirl pearls and butterflies! LOVE IT!
