I received a stationary set from my Nanny when I was 9 years old for Christmas. This wasn`t unusual as my Nanny always sent me stationary (I suspect at my mother`s request) so that I would have something to write my thank you notes to everyone who sent me a gift at Christmas. The stationary and envelopes are long since gone. The little note pad that came along with it...still hanging around in my desk. I came acrossed it the other day when looking for something else and decided it was time to do something with it! Afterall...I will be 45 in August! Man!! Did I just write that!!

My challenge for the day was to do the ever challenging Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge of the week. It was a tough one!! I took the cover off my little note pad and cut it down to size and chose some scraps of paper I had in my ever growing scrap bin. I had some really cute tickets but they were too big so I had to create my own. Hope it doesn`t look to cheesy. I also used my brand new Cuttlebug embossing folder Tiny Bubbles. I am really pleased with the end result of this card. It`s nice to see this adorable image out and about and no longer buried inside my desk. It`s just too cute to keep to myself any longer.

For the inside I used a piece of cs that I ran through the CB with the same Tiny Bubbles embossing folder and a sheet of paper from the note pad!! I used a Whipper Snapper Designs sentiment called Love Makes the Ride. I also cut out the corner image and put it on the top inside of the card. Here are a couple of close up shots.

I have another cut out of the corner image drying upstairs in my office with Diamond Glaze and a piece of magnetic backing. I will be putting inside the card so whomever receives this card can use the image as a fridge magnet. Hope you liked todays card! Thanks for stopping by!
