greeting thinlits | Fancy Friday

We are back again with another Fancy Friday!
(why aren't my kids in bed?)

It's the time of the month when I join up with some of my favorite stampers in the whole world. I love them.  I really do.  We still talk and I can't imagine them not being part of my week.
(will my husband please at least get the pajamas on?)

Because I procrastinated again I had to throw this card together very fast.  Lighting speed.  Like a bullet.  But it wasn't hard because Jen Timko must had made this sketch with me in mind.
(obviously every time she sits to create a sketch she thinks 'what would Cathy love?')

Here's the sketch she put together.  Why do I like it?  Well, its clean. It's simple.  And I am willing to bet that anyone that uses it will make a beautiful card with minimal effort.
(Times are tough here.  My daughter has no clothes on and my son is playing with about a dozen packages of fruit snacks... moving them from hiding spot to hiding spot.  No. No... He wont be eating them... don't you know its bed time?)

All the products I used are from the new catalog.... to come out on June 2nd!  I was so excited to use the new greetings thinlits that I cut out some of those before I even thought about the sketch.  Then I realized how perfect they would be!!  The background paper comes from the Cherry on Top 6x6 Designer Series paper stack.  
(my kids are driving me crazy.)

Last month, I did a giveaway!
