TSSC 157

Good Sunday morning! It looks to be a wonderful, lovely day here in Western Colorado! And the forecast for the week shows warmer temperatures!! Yeah!!! I can't believe how ready for spring I am! I know winter isn't over yet, but it will be nice not to feel cold all the time. Yesterday's funeral was a wonderful celebration of a life well lived. While we are sad and we miss him right now, we know we will see him again someday and that's what made it such a celebration. I was really lucky to have known him! Today' Nick has two competitive basketball games. His team hasn't won any, yet. And one of the teams we play today is really good. I sure do hope they win at least one game this season. But if not, I know that he is getting a LOT of playing time and has learned TONS! And for that, I am so happy!!

For today's card I used a sketch from Mary Jo. I need to make more of an effort to participate in her sketches. I really do like them but time gets away from me and I miss out. But not this week!! I got it in just in time. I know a few women who will be having babies in the next few months and thought that this was a nice baby card. I knew I wanted to use the stars as my three focal points. The stripes are from the Solid Stripes single stamp. I stamped that stamp on scrap cardstock (So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue). I used a darker coordinating color to stamp with (Marina Mist, More Mustard, Garden Green). And then I punched out the star. Easy! Anyway, I really liked the way it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
