Get It, Girl

Just get out there and get it -- maybe a college degree, understanding your kid, a new hairdo, or the WRMK's Fuse tool because you want to get on the shaker card bandwagon.  Whatever it is, hope it is something fine and good and that you get it.

Inspired by Michele Ferguson's gorgeous card (below) that she made for the Muse Challenge -- black patterned paper, a tag, and a beautiful butterfly.  There is still time to play in this challenge as entries are not due until Monday at 8 am!
