I can't believe it has been a week since I posted last.  Time sure flies when you have a lot to do.  My FIL had a stroke last Friday so we had to go for a visit and I be dog gone if the heat didn't get to my car.  It was 112 and the belt and belt positioner ended up making some god awful noise and had to be replaced before we could go home.  This has been quite the week for me.  My father's girlfriend just had a double mastectomy today for Breast Cancer.  She was lucky enough that the cancer had not spread to the lymph nodes or muscle tissue.  Thank God!  That has been my was yours?

This week for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, Allison is asking that we CASE a DT member from the Flourishes Gallery.  I chose a beautiful card from Cindy Lawrence found in the gallery HERE.  She also has a video tutorial HERE showing how she did the pretty border on her card.  If you look to the right on the gallery page you can see that you are able to search by stamp sets if you like.  If you noticed I was so busy trying to get the card size right and goofed the side that the border went on...OOPS!

I also wanted to take a minute to tell my sweet friend Mona goodbye.  This is her last post with Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  I will miss her and her beautiful creations each week.  I hope you will still find a little crafty time to play sometimes.  :)
