Two Roads Diverged! Shining the Light, Announcements, and MORE!

Happy Sunday!  I had a little time to spend in my crafty space today which is quite rare lately during the weekends.  My dd is home from university so we had a Twilight Marathon Weekend!  We literally watched all 5 movies back to back.  I must admit there were a few snooze moments on my part.   I think the kids have a couple of dozing pictures of me.   Anyway, after what seems like a long time sitting and watching, I was ready to get crafty.   

I made a card using ODBD Quote Collection 1 stamp set.
I kept my card some what simple. I am using the sketch from this week's Shining the Light Challenge145. 

For my card I am using some MME designer papers.  I stitched the panels and added a die cut frame and the sentiment to the center.  I finished with seam binding bow and resin flower. 

A few announcements!

 As always thanks so much for stopping by!
