TSSC 263

Good morning, Friends! Can you believe that I am actually posting on a non designer day? Wow! I was able to get myself motivated and I was inspired by several sketches so I came up with some cards to post this weekend! Yea me!! I hope this will continue. And I did order some new goodies that I hope will be here early next week. That always seems to get the creative juices flowing again! I am trying to get myself moving a little earlier as I am meeting a high school friend for coffee and then it's off to the soccer fields for the end of the season tournament! Let's go get this, boys!

Today's card was inspired by Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. I flagged then end of a piece of Epic Day designer paper and adhered it to a card base of Pool Party. Then I stamped the oval image from Oh, Hello in Pool Party onto Very Vanilla. The sentiment is stamped over this in Basic Grey. I used the Occasions paper piercing pack to pierce around the oval. The top right hand corner is rounded and then I added three brads before popping it up onto the card. I flagged the end of another piece of Epic Day designer paper and adhered it to the card. On Very Vanilla I stamped the flower image twice using Calypso Coral and Gumball Green markers. These are carefully cut out and arranged onto the card. The bottom one is glued flat and the top one is popped up. I threaded some linen thread through a grey button and adhered that tot he card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
