CTD410 and FMS254 Thanks


Happy Thursday, peeps!  A very quick card today, although it took me an agonizingly long time to make this card....I must have added/deleted/changed the elements ten times or more!  Finally I said "THAT'S IT!"....and here we go:


I used the floral, dragonfly and lace images from Touches of Textures, stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party, and although it's hard to see, I stamped the textured image on some Pool Party cardstock and hand-cut some leaves:


My background was stamped with the speckles from Swirly Bird in Pool Party ink and the DSP is from A Little Foxy.  I created my sentiment with Labeler Alphabet and some Basic Gray ink.  I added a couple candy dots and some silver trim as an afterthought!  My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches, and the colors are from Color Throwdown


Thanks for peeking in today!  And here's what I was peeking at while at the bus stop today....she's still learning all those early words, but she's working hard at it!  This is Dr Seuss's "What Pet Should I Get?"  It has a wee bit of a surprise ending, so it is great for starting a dialogue about how she would end the story!


Enjoy your day!
