What is a Weekend?

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (my all time fave flavor!)

My second post for the day, it's time for a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore. Our theme this month is 'Make a Card.' easy peasy, right? our sponsor is the fabby Kenny K! you know you want to win some of those distinctive images!

I am a HUGE fan of Downton Abbey. have you ever watched it? even my hubby loves the show. we will be quite sad when the last episode airs this coming Sunday. so my card today is somewhat a tribute.

The Dowager makes me smile every time she is on screen. she truly has some of the best lines. as I was researching some of her quotes, I giggled when I came across this one. of course my mind thought them all in her voice.... you have to put the accent on the last syllable of the word 'weekEND' just as she did.

I used the images 'Valet' and 'Dowager Countess' on my card. digital papers are from Far Far Hill, flowers & leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts, buttons are from my vintage stash, and pink wired grosgrain is also a stash item.

the gorgeous die along the side is by Find It Trading, main image die is from SU!, and little banner is a punch from SU! also. lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I do hope you will join our fun challenge! thank you so very much for stopping by my blog. enjoy your day! :)

This is a wonderful card Jennifer. The two images are perfect together and I love all the pretty touches you've added.
I was given a book of the Dowager's quotes for Christmas. It's fabulous. Enjoy the last episode, it won't disappoint xx

As a Downton fan I had to smile at your sentiment. It certainly works very well with your lovely design. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
