PCCCS196 Thanks


Happy Tuesday, all!  Back to the normal routine today after a marvelous holiday weekend!  I can't remember a long weekend where we had such great weather and were so relaxed!  I was so relaxed I almost couldn't get motivated to stamp!  But I had seen this fun sketch so I decided to play around with some elements I already had laying on my desk!  This sketch is from the Paper Craft Crew:

Welcome to the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge 196. Play along at www.papercraftcrew.com #papercraftcrew #cardsketch

You might remember this card; I was playing around with the same floral image from the All About Everything Paper Pumpkin set, but using different colors (these are from the ColourQ 343) and had these left over on my work area, so I combined them with a vellum flower diecut and some gold twine:


I embossed the vellum with the Perfect Polka Dots EF on the "lightest" setting so it wouldn't cut through the vellum.  The sentiment is from Watercolor Wishes, and banner's ends were cut with deckle-edged scissors and colored with a gold Zig Painty Pen. I also added some Gold Encore speckles with Itty Bitty Backgrounds:


The DSP is a little scrap of Pretty Petals and the heart and circular mat are gold foil!  Thanks for popping in today!

I love this shot of Cassidy coming through the flower bed on Sunday morning before church.  She was retrieving one of her dolls who slept overnight outside, LOL!  What you might not notice is that she is wearing my sneakers!


The grass was wet and she didn't feel like going inside for her boots, and Grammy's shoes conveniently happened to be on the porch!

Enjoy your day!

Oh how I love your card LeAnne...the embossed vellum is fabulous along with the other elements ❤️ Cassidy is adorable, and I did notice your shoes right away! I often would slip into my dads shoes when mom needed me to grab something from the garden! Have a great day 😊
