Hello My Sweet Friend....

It's Friday... It's Friday.... the best day of the week! Right?

I think we will be cleaning all weekend.  The sun has begun to shine a little and the dust is glistening in the rays of sunlight. hehehe and the hardwood floors are in desperate need of a bath.

Well, I pulled out the For The Record 2 collection from Echo Park for my project today.  This collection sure makes me smile because the colors are so bright and the patterns remind me of grandma's garden in late spring/early summer.  Everything in bloom and smelling wonderful.  The cards in the collection are slightly vintage in sentiment and design with the old fashion icons.

I used a Sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I used up my left over Bazzill Bon Bon cardstock from yesterday and the rest is from For The Record 2 with a little cantaloup twine.  I actually did something that I have never done before, CUT A STAMP IN HALF... eeekkkk  don't yell at me.  For some reason I feel like I just got caught cutting my hair or something.  Anyhow, I had the stamp My Friend, but I wanted the sweet in there too.  So, out came the scissors and it is now 3 stamps.  I KNOW I will use it more now.

Today is the last day to link up the the Green and 4 of Something Challenge and come back Saturday to see what the new Challenge will be!  

I will be linking this card to the CAS(E) Challenge

Have a wonderful weekend and hope you get to play with paper... or at least look at it until your cheeks hurt from smiling.

  2. What a creative take on the sketch! I love the floral background - reminds me that spring will be here soon! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  3. So pretty! I love the floral papers. I love the panel with the sentiment. I just cut some stamps this weekend and I felt just as guilty. :)
