It's the Weekend!!

TGIF Everyone!

Wow, what a crazy morning! Dropped everyone off at school and daycare and then went to the grocery store, came home, put everything away, then off to pick every one up and then lunch and finally nap time! (AKA stamping time!) I really liked this week's sketch from Beate. I think the thing I liked best about it is that it doesn't have any circles! It seems as though a lot of people are on a circle kick lately, which is great when one has cutter blades that work properly! Anyways, I immediately thought of my "Pocket Silhouettes" set, because I had seen a lot of people use it when I was looking at what people had submitted for KWerner's Color Inspiration. I chose Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, Sage Shadow and Blush Blossom for my colors. I stamped the images along the bottom in Sage Shadow, and Burgundy. Then I used the floral background in Sage ink. I stamped another image from the "Pocket Silhouettes" in Blush Blossom (which is a bit hard to see in the picture), then used my Burgundy and NQ Navy markers to stamp the image again and stamped it on top. I inked the edges in Sage Shadow ink and attached to NQ Navy piece, which I then paper-pierced. I had originally planned to use Burgundy ribbon; but realized I was out of it, so I used Chocolate Chip instead. Finally I finished the card with the sentiment from "Sincere Salutations" and the eyelets and brads. The picture looks a bit crooked, and I'm not sure why!
Thanks so much for visiting with me, and have a great weekend!

I am sorry my sketches have so many circles. I am opposite of you. I LOVE circles. I added one to my sample, because I can't help myself.

Your card came out adorable! Thanks so much for playing!
Hugs and smiles

This is really cute! It sounds like your morning was jam packed with things to do. Sometimes I wish I had the convenience of daycare to get some stuff done.
