CTD393 and FMS237 Sitting Here


Happy Friday, everyone!  Ahhh...the weekend...another rain-soaked weekend....is upon us!  Blessedly, today is supposed to be sunny so I'll enjoy it while I can!  I had a chance to play with some new SU goodies yesterday!  I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown for my card:


And here we go:


This new set is called Sitting Here and it has the sweetest images....I love this porch swing!  I was not sure if the top color of the palette was pale pink or tan, so I took artistic liberty and went with tan....Crumb Cake, in fact!  I stamped my images in Memento Black and colored them with an aquapainter and reinkers in shades of Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Strawberry Slush and Smoky Slate:


I added some Strawberry Slush twine and a Regal Rose scalloped border.  I also cut out the pillows and "puffed" one of them by contouring it with the end of a stylus from the back.  It gives it a cute little dimension in real life!  Finally, I stamped one of the sentiments from the set and added a Smoky Slate "hello" diecut from the Greetings thinlets.  Thanks for visiting today!

After a bath, Cassidy had her favorite lunch....croutons, tomatoes, salad and cheese with ranch dressing!  She was giggling because her crouton looked like a boot!!  She's got imagination!


Enjoy your day!

I just "read" your sweet post and am giggling over your granddaughter. Her shirt instantly made me think of the new DSP, Affectionately Yours (I think is the name?)! So silly we all are, eh?! :)

What a great card! I love the swing and how you've colored it so beautifully. I also love how you "fluffed" the pillow; it makes it wonderfully dinsional. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
