A Rose is a Rose

Good morning, Friends! Yea!!!! I am on spring break! I can do whatever I want! And I want to stamp some more!! Nick is even on a "break" from sports at the moment. We didn't have any games this weekend! Now this will be short lived. And soccer practices did start last week but that's it! So rec basketball is over but he was asked to be on a team that a coach wants to take to a tournament later in April. I think this is very exciting! So those practices will start up again. The team has special jerseys for this tournament. Our college in town is Mesa State and their mascot is the maverick (Mavs for short). So the boys have a real looking Mavs jersey!! They LOVE it!! I am really excited to see how they will do! But don't forget that baseball tryouts are in two weeks! Yikes!!!

So today's card started from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch. As you can see it ended up not even close. I just didn't want to take away from the rose. I can't believe it turned out as great as it did. I stamped on Barely Banana with Crushed Curry and then used my blender pen to highlight some areas. Super easy! Well, I hope it is more "springy" where you are. Looks like rain or snow or both around here. Thanks for stopping by!
