Sophia says Thank You!!

Hi Everyone! My company is gone and now I am in the process of packing for my lake vacation. We are all sooooo excited to get there already. We have been taking the kids to the same place for the past 10 years so it really is like a home away from home for them. They know the in's and out's of the resort and can really come and go as they please as it is such a friendly and family oriented place. I do however bring alot with me as far as food goes because the supermarkets are some what expensive in a vacation community and well I just like what I like so I want to have it with me!! I have a huge 3' x 2' tupperwere box that I put MOST of the dry goods into then I have about 7 shopping totes that I put the rest into. THEN I have the cooler for the cold and frozen stuff. I know it really sounds like alot but we do not eat out because the restaurants really stink up there so I need food for all of us for the week plus snacks.

Then comes the crafting "schtuf" that I just MUST bring. I will take a picture of that later and post it tomorrow for you. You will think I am nuts but I really do bring alot with me. Another huge tupperwere bin plus my crafting tote. And then clothes???? Oh did I forget about that?? LOL!!

So onto my card for today. I made it with my brand new SOTM Sophia. Thank You Sophia. She is in my opinion one of the cutest put out and also the one that can really be used often because she is not "seasonal". I just know I will be inking her up often. I paper pieced her dress with paper from Making Memories Chloes Closet and then colored the rest of her with my copics. My dp is from Bella Bleu. Cardstock is Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla from SU. Sentiment was cut out with my oval punches and for the small NQN panels I ran them through the cuttlebug with my Swirls folder. Flowers are primas and cut out with a fiskars punch. Large silver brad is SU and the silver baubles are Stamping Bella. The tiny bit of lace is from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you like the card and that I did not rant on too much!! Have a fantastic day and I will be back tomorrow with pix of my mounds of stuff!!
