SFYTT Best Wishes



Good Monday Morning Peeps!! Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for to tackle the upcoming week! I am expecting to get some new goodies today, I am pumped!!!


Today's card is made for Jen's Sketch for you to Try!

I looked at this sketch for ever and thought about it for a long time and just couldn't wrap my head around it. Nothing was coming to mind as what to make with it. But when I sit down at my desk it just all fell into place. I pulled out my Eastern Blooms stamp set and then I went looking for some DS paper. I saw my Maine Blueberry, which I love the colors are some of my all time favorites, and after that it all come together really quickly. I have never made a card as quickly as I did this one. I hope that means I am improving! You all would be surprised to know how long I take with a card and how much I anguish over every little thing! I doubt myself at every turn!! UGH!!!!!

The card is a 4-1/2 inch square. I started the base with some Bashful Blue and then each layer is matted with Not Quite Navy! The card is pretty straight forward, so I will save you the chit-chat. I hope you like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I have alot to get done before my friend Lois picks me up around noon. We are going to stalk the UPS man together and maybe stamp a little in between times!! HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!

What a great card. I love the large circle. I have tons and tons of embellishments but never use them. I might "steal" your idea with the paper clip. TFS!
