feeling good and so very thankful

It's been a fantastic week... I'm feeling so very thankful.  Finished my first week at my new job, and its been great.  Wonderful people, fun work neighborhood, free coffee and snacks (!!!!), and it just feels so good to be back in the swing of things.

This card, which is being entered to CAS-ual Fridays and CASology, reflects exactly how I feel.

I was inspired by this yummy card by Pamela Ho.  Flawless.  Her sepia tones reminded me of the camera I had in college.  You could take a regular picture, or make it black & white, or sepia.  So when I wanted my photos to have a sophisticated look, I made them sepia.  And yes, by doing so, I thought I was all that. Ha!

This card was enjoyable to make...I finally got to dust off and use all these brown distress inks that I won on eBay several months back.  And, I got to use this super lovely wood grain paper that came in my goodie bag from Damask Love Live.  Yay!

Let's keep this good feeling going.  Thank you for taking a look!
