On the Mend and Bruges

Hi everyone!

How is your week going? There is lots going on here! I told you yesterday about the WMS Blog Waltz for April, I hope you can participate!

The Pens have also made the playoffs again, with the games starting tomorrow night. We are big hockey fans at my house and this is a great time of year.

AND if you haven't heard.. the premier issue of Embellish Magazine has been released! It is an electronic publication, and it only costs $3! It is *full* of inspiration, great articles, and a little feature about each designer! I have two cards in this issue! Check it out, and be sure to also check out the current publication call. You could be published, too!

Now on to the good stuff.

A fun little get well card using Quilter's Sampler and Background Basics: Tin Types. Each of the quilt blocks was stamped onto a different pattern from the Pretty Pastels paper pack and cut out. I love using the pinking blade on my cutter for cards like this. Really love this one.. easy layout that could easily be interchanged with so many other designs.

Today I want to share some photos of our time in Bruges. This was the highlight of the trip for me - it was truly beautiful. Of all the places I visited, I would return to Bruges in a heartbeat, and would recommend a visit should you have the opportunity!

I'll keep the chatter to a minimum and let you enjoy the pictures :)

I hope you enjoyed those - I can't wait to go back! Have a great night!
