Boy did my allergies kick in today! I don’t usually have allergies until around September but I am stuffed big time. I started the Claritin so in three days I should feel better! The sun was shining until around 1:00 yesterday and then it started to get cloudy. It misted a little last night but today we are supposed to get some showers. It’s Thursday and I plan to take a little trip in to the city tonight and on Saturday, like I said yesterday it’s been too long. That of course will make today and tomorrow go a little slower as is always the case when you have something to look forward to. I stopped by my friend Sandy’s last night and we had a nice little visit. She is so great! I’m lucky in the friends that I have and I know it! 🙂
Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Sweet Amy has given us this sketch…
I took a look at the sketch while I was at work and began to formulate my idea, by the time I got home the card was done! LOL! I used Whisper White for my card base and covered the entire front with a piece of Hello Honey* that I embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The square in the middle is a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and is backed with a piece of Sahara Sand. Next up is a strip of Sahara Sand and another strip of the Moonlight DSP with the right side flagged. My greeting is from the Label Something Stamp Set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss* and punched out with the Hexagon Punch. Honeycomb always needs a beee right, mine is from the Springtime Hello Stamp Set and is stamped in Hello Honey* and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the square, greeting and bee to the card. Blackberry Bliss* and Hello Honey* look pretty good together don’t you think?! And I have already professed my love for the Moonlight DSP! A simple card but the little bee adds so much! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Amy. I had fun making the card and I thank you for coming by to see it. Have a terrific Thursday! 🙂
