SFYTT - Happy Sunday!


Happy Sunday everyone!

I have not done many challenges in the last few weeks, work has taken up most of my energy. But gotta pay the bills - and buy the stamps, paper, ink, ribbon, ...

This is for Jen's Sketch for You to Try this weekend. There are lots of wonderful cards in the SCS gallery too, so be sure to check them out.

The cute flower stamp on this card came from the hot stuff bin at Archiver's and the bling was a package of flower sequins, also from Archiver's. The torn strip is paper from my good friend Sabrina and when you tear it, it shows the color from the other side! Very cool stuff - thanks Sabrina!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: clear stamp from Archiver's; Friendship Blooms
Paper: Basic Grey, Soft Sky, Sabrina's fun stuff, Cameo Coral, Whisper White
Ink: basic black, cameo coral, soft sky, tempting turquoise, markers
Accessories: cb, gel pen, sequin flowers, mini brads, ribbon from Mike's

I used my tempting turquoise spot on the cuttlebugged piece of soft sky to color the dots - first time trying that and it worked much better than I thought. Didn't make nearly the mess I was afraid I would!

I had two gals email me about the pif blog candy that never responded with snail mail addresses, so I am looking for two more folks to step up and claim these packages. If you are interested, please send me an email (see the right hand column) with your address and the first two to respond will get a cool envelope of stuff in the mail. Also, check out my 3000K celebration candy. I'll pick a winner on Tuesday, so get your comments in! Thanks so much everyone who has left comments. Your kind words are much appreciated!

Thanks for visiting - have a wonderful week! I'll be back tomorrow with a card for Julee's Mojo Monday challenge - I just love starting the week with that!

This is terrific...what an interesting mix of elements and design with the torn paper. Seriously, one of your best, I think!

Great card! I love the spring colors. This is a fun sketch.
