Happy Thursday, everyone!  How can it be Thursday already?!  I had a few free minutes to stamp yesterday, so I made a thank-you card for a customer using Rita’s  Freshly Made Sketches sketch:

Rita always has wonderful sketches!  I just love this new Strawberry Slush color featured on this particular Quatrefancy DP:


I mixed it with a couple of the other new In Colors, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe, to make my 4 1/4” square card.  The banners were stamped with images from Mosaic Madness, and the circular element is from A Round Array and Mosaic Madness.  The bird image is from Animal Talk!  And of course, the inside features the corresponding sentiment:


A perfect sentiment for a sweet customer!

We are all suffering from spring colds and allergies, Cassidy included.  Plus, we are all trying to “encourage” her to potty train!  After a particularly trying morning, and a little 15-minute meltdown, I took her out for a swing because it was just too nice of a day to stay inside.  We didn’t make it too long:




I took her out, rocked her on the porch rocker for about two minutes and she was out like a light!

Oh I love this card. It definitely says Spring to me. This DP is gorgeous and I love the banners you've made. Sweet little image too.
Poor Cassidy she looks completely wiped out.........wish I could just nod off like that.

Now look at this...making me regret not having this paper!!! Such fabulous details, LeAnne!! Love the embossing! Those pictures of Cassidy are too sweet. I love the heavy eyelids (potty training really is exhausting after all)!

Rita said...

Oh! Now that makes my sketch look good! I love the fun colors!!! LOL at Cassidy. We are having one of those weeks this week.

Love the bright colors, your little birdy is too cute!

Great, cheerful card. Love the combination of colors & papers. Look at it this way LeAnne - once they're potty trained, they want to stop at every public bathroom they see. She WON'T graduate high school in diapers!!
