CPS & "Keep In Touch" Card Shop

This week at CPS we were sponsored by the "Keep In Touch" Card Shop. The lovely owner, Kelly McMaster, sent each CPS designer a different kit based on our individual styles. How awesome is that?! Be sure to check out her cute little online shop, and be sure to get your card done for this week's sketch! Get it linked up to the Mr. Linky post, and you will be entered to win a kit from Kelly!! Check her blog post here for details!

This is my card for sketch #105 this week at CPS....everything on this card except the cardstock and "thanks" rub-on sentiment are part of my kit contents from Kelly. I adore all the bright colors and fun embellishments she sent...I embellished this little card until my heart was content! :) And this card was done using up some of the paper scraps and more cute contents from the kit. The only items not from her kit on this one are the letters. This card was also inspired by THIS awesome ad challenge at a new card challenge blog called 365 Cards. There is a fun challenge every single day at this blog, so be sure to check it out! The colors in the add, and the great wall art in it provided my inspiration for this one!
Now let me tell you...it has been a crazy day! As many of you know, I work for a television station. We have stations in 4 cities in the state, including Bozeman, Montana. This morning around 8am there was a large explosion most likely caused by natural gas in downtown Bozeman that completely destroyed 5 businesses. So- it was obviously hopping at my place of employment today. Once we caught wind of what was happening...I was on the phone calling Bozeman reporters and anchors in...people were running up and down the stairs from the news room to the studio...cut-ins all morning long whenever we got breaking news....just craziness all day long! All but 1 person is accounted for right now, and we are all hoping for a good outcome there. And while it was a crazy day...it was very rewarding to know that we did everything we could to make sure our viewers were kept notified on the situation.

Well, I am off to watch the American Idol wild card show! Hope you have a great Thursday night!

Until later,
~Lea
