Last night was pizza night. And I had the new bacon cheeseburger pizza from Pa Pa Johns. It was really good. But if you don't like pickles you would not like it at all.

 This card was created using the Cheery Lynn center step card die and the By the Sea Graphics 45 pad. The girl is cut from this collage page in the front of the pad. The pad was an 8x8 size which suits cards so much better than the 12x12 size.
This is the inside of the card. I love the calling cards you get in the graphics 45 pads.
