A Crafty Ho Challenge

I am sad to say that since the holidays, I have been lax in getting around to the many blogs I follow.  This is my week to get back in the groove of doing so.

First stop - the HO's....  They are an inspiring bunch of crafters and you never know what they might be looking for in their weekly challenge.  Today, it is a photo to inspire and get the creative juices flowing.  You really must check out their blog/challenge and get a peek at some great eye candy!

My card features two Stampin Up sets - stamped in Tuxedo Black Momento on plain white cardstock.  The black CS is from my scraps and the pearls and rhinestones were left-overs from some holiday crafting.

I must say that I took inspration more from the fact that is was a black and white photo, but think the quote I used is very appropriate!

My cardholder today is my son, Kyle!  He wanted to be included....lol

Thanks for stopping by today.
Huggz,
April
