It WILL Get Better!!

Hello, all! I am happy to report that I think I am off of my Debbie Downer slump for the time being. I'm so excited to the kids to get home from school so we can go for a walk. I have been looking forward to it since I woke up this morning!
I have been a busy little bee, getting posts ready for this week {I have a full week of them, and I see no end in sight! Is that a good thing or a bad thing? You tell me.} I went made my daily trek to Archivers this morning. {Well, almost daily. They have new stuff coming out of their ears just about each day.}
One of my new favorite things that I picked up while I was there {which I got to play with at CHA and couldn't wait til they showed up in the stores} is the new Tim Holtz Distress Stains. I know, I have an over abundance of love for all things Tim Holtz, but these really are the bomb-diggity!!
For the card below, I used the Weathered Wood Distress Stain on the lace ribbon. Didn't it turn out beautifully?
I made this card to link up over at Card Patterns for their weekly sketch challenge. I thought it came out great. This is one of my favorite new collections from Little Yellow Bicycle, called Twig.
Hope you enjoyed, and see you back here tomorrow!!
