Muse Card Club #160

Muse
Hello friends!  It's me ... your Muse this week!  I'm happy to be bringing you a pretty simple card, and thinking it's time to say how grateful I am.  For those of you who visit, who take time out of your busy lives to leave a kind word, and support my journey in Blogland, and Muse!  This one's for YOU!

MFT background stamp; that cute little butterfly from Lisa E.
 
So there you have it ... tell me, do you have a few people in your lives that you are grateful for?  I'm betting you do, and hope you'll share!  Most of all, have fun with this!

Hello Michele: Your card is beautiful, as always, a wonderful example of what CAS is. I don't always have a chance to come and visit you but this morning, I have a few hours to myself to come and admire your work.
As a new blogger and even newer CAS card maker, I've learned so much from artists like you about this beautiful style of creating cards. Yours are simply amazing every time so, it's us who are grateful to you for sharing your creativity so selflessly every day so we can learn from the best.
So, thank YOU Michelle and I hope you continue to inspire and teach for a long, long time.
Big Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

What a sweet post today, Michele - and of course, I had to play "cards" with you as your card's LO is so inspiring. Thank YOU!

Brenda said...

Sure loving the simplicity of this card Michele! That paper is so pretty, but low keyed. Love that butterfly-I don't think you can ever go wrong with a beautiful butterfly. Yes, I have many people to whom I am very thankful for. A lot in blogland as well!! I know that I am one blessed girl to have the wonderful people that are in my life, so am always thankful and always thanking God for blessing me so much! Hugs, Brenda

Well, I'm grateful for you - your wonderful works of art and warm humor! And I love this elegant beauty. It's so serene. Yet there's movement from the lower left to upper right thanks to your perfect design.

Anita in France said...

Well, let me think ... how about YOU, my friend ... you are a bright light that always shines ... thank you! Your card is beautiful ... that soft green with the delicate stamping is gorgeous with the grey ... calm and lovely! Hugs, Anita :)

SonjaK said...

Such an awfully pretty muse card! I love it so much because it's straightforward, clean and whimsical at the same time. That's something I always want to archive but I never ever manage to do so. My thinking is much too complicated and I don't know what to do about it. You can't imagine how much your design is impressing me.

SonjaK said...

Oh, and I forgot: There are lot's of people in my life that I'm grateful for. First of all my family - my hubby, my daughter, my parents, they're all fantastic. And I'm really greateful for this awesome papercrafting community. So many kind and fantastic people out there, you being one of them. I never have enough time to directly return all of the kindness I receive but I hope at least I succeed in giving some bits and pieces of it back.

Lindsey said...

This card is so very classy! Thank you for this awesome Muse inspiration!

Kelly Griglione said...

Gorgeous card, Michele! So many things that I'm grateful for, and I try to call them out every day. As a matter of fact, my license plate is "ALLS GR8" ... another daily reminder : )

Hannelie said...

Inspired... again!
Just BEAUTIFUL!

Jen W. said...

I played along but didn't get my entry in on time. :( Love your colour combo.
