Happy Thursday!

Goodness, it's Thursday!  Woot woot!  DD is flying in tomorrow afternoon for the weekend. We are so excited!  She's coming in to run the Go St. Louis Half-Marathon on Sunday, and will fly home later that day, but a short visit is better than no visit!  I will more than likely be MIA for the weekend...you all understand!

Short post today!  There's a new artist in town. His name is Robert Jackson, and he's one amazing artist! I was lucky enough to win one of his images last week, so I'm entering it into his very first challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions.  Hope you like it!  The sentiment is from Great Impressions. I've had it for a long time, and it's a go-to for me!  I really wanted to make this card CAS in order to show off the artist's beautiful creation!

Image: Fine Arts by Robert Jackson, DP: My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline", Copic Markers, Sharpie Pen, EK Success Zig-Zag Punch, Bazzill Basics CS, X-Press It Blending CS.

I hope that you will stop in and check out his fabulous work!  I'm also entering this card in the challenge at Oozak.com!  Thanks for stopping by!

I wish you well this weekend. If I don't see you again before, I will see you on Monday!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.
