UPDATE:  The previous link to the Happy Crafters website was incorrect on this original post below.  The link is now updated correctly, and will direct you to the website.

Happy Thursday, everyone!!!  AND... I've got it right today!!!!  I don't know if you noticed or not, but I thought yesterday was Tuesday when I greeted you all on my post.  For the life of me, I don't know where I lost it, however, I actually lost an entire day!!!  Guess my headache was worse than I thought...lol!!!

Anyway, I have another card I made from another CHA Supershow find.  The embossing board I used for my is designed by the "Glitter Girls" and, if you like it, can be purchased at The Happy Crafters website:  http://www.happycrafter.com/.  Here'sa picture of the board:

And here's the card I made using it:

The rhinestones on this card are actually clear rhinestones, the blue was picked up from my blouse which reflected onto the gems.  It turned out really nice but I wish I'd used more lively colors!  The paper colors I used are cream and gold, but I rubbed a black Luster Rub-On creme over the background embossed area and it gave it such a dark look -- looks almost masculine to me.  Anyway, next time I make this card, I'll use a lighter color-scheme.  Overall, I like the appearance and this is going to be another fun board I'm going to enjoy using.

I didn't complete the inside of this card as I don't know what occassion I'll use it for, so I'll just put it aside to have until something appropriate comes up.

Okay, my beautiful family-friends, that's about it for now; however, I'll be back!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  And, of course...,  I'll be seeing you!!!

I tried the link but it is not the page. I think it is "happycrafter" without the "s".

Audrey, your card is gorgeous - you really are a super crafter and always sharing wonderful work with us. I had to see what you've been up to and I am sorry CHA was such a disappointment. I've never gone to one but always read about it through Craft Critique but they would never tell us it was not a good show so it was good to hear your side. You did find some great things though which is good - lovely crafting things for you. I also see you had a lovely family reunion - those are always fun! Thanks for always giving us a treat with the fun things you share - hope you're having a fantastic week. You know I get my days mixed up too - guess we're just having too much fun! :-)

Your card is just beautiful, Audrey! I like the contrast of the dark background. It makes the cross more dramatic. xxD
