Where Did the Week Go?
Good Thursday Morning Peeps! Where did my week go? I have been battling this nasty ol' flu bug since last Friday, I have a good day and then a couple of bad ones and then another good, today I woke up feeling pretty good, but at the time I am typing this I feel a bit light headed again! YUCK!!! Will it ever end? I appreciate the people who have checked on me, worried about me not posting and just generally caring, it is like chicken soup for the soul. Friends GOOD!!!
On to today's card, I actually made this one on Sunday, while stamping with friends. and I apologize in advance if I inadvertently spread this nasty bug around by being out on Saturday and Sunday.
I had printed out Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge, this weekend hosted by The Fabulous Jenn Balcer. I had taken some DS paper with me to use for the sketch and had to "borrow" a couple sheets of cardstock from my friend Lois. I also used her stamp set and her Cherry Blossom die, which I just ordered. It is so pretty!
I used the DS paper "Candy Lane" and cardstock colors are riding hood red, very vanilla, and close to cocoa. The Sentiment comes from the SU set "On Your Birthday". Lois helped me some with this card, her suggestion to use the pretty ribbon across the bottom and the rhinestone brads in the flower middles.
I really like how the card turned out. It is a 5-1/4 x 5-1/4 inch square card.
I missed Tuesday and St. Patty's day but I wanted to show you the little boxes I made for the girls I stamp with.
Last Monday the Technique Challenge on Splitcoast where these
cute little Treat Purse's That is the pattern I used for my St. Patty Day Treat Bags.
Here is a picture of an open one:
This is how I wanted them all to look, but because I got sick I didn't get them completely finished, I hope the girls still liked them. After all, Friends are OUR POT OF GOLD! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to have something new for you tomorrow. HAPPY STAMPING!!!
