Smile


Wanted to get this month's Sketch For You To Try done early as June is always insanely busy with it being the last month of school before summer vacation.  Parent and teacher teas, Sports Day, year end field trips and parties, soccer tournaments, piano recitals and exams, and the list goes on!  Tired just thinking about it!

Sorry...enough complaining! Back to the card.  I combined this month's SFYTT with this week's ColourQ which had a wonderful mix of colours to work with.  After a brief hiatus, I'm back to flowers and polka dots....sorry...well, not really....LOL...I just love making cards with them.


Lots of Verve goodies on this card - happy sigh.  Used three different sets for this card.  Just love how you can mix and match Verve stamps and dies - just in case you hadn't noticed how much I use them :)   

Wishing you a fabulous day!  Thanks for dropping by.

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Celebration of Thanks, Bloom and Grow, Great Friend (Verve)
Paper:  Certainly Celery, Read Red DSP, Teal, Turquoise
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Scalloped Circle and Circle Nesties, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Elegant Leaves Die (Verve) Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches, Scalloped Border Punch (SU), Black Half Pearls, Dimensionals

Oh yeah, I hear you....thinking about all the stuff that has to get done around here makes me tired, too.

AWESOME card, as always, Marisa! Love that you used the debossed side of the polka dots and that big blue flower totally POPS against all that white.

Someday soon, the kiddies will be grown and gone and all you'll have to do is make cards. Boy, that's good AND bad! It's nice that you are so involved with them, I'm sure that they really appreciate all you do, even if they may not say it in words...
And your card is just lovely, which is why I came here!
