Sending You Love

Good morning and happy first day of Spring.  Springlike weather has been here in Ontario for over a week now.....maybe it's here to stay....or maybe Winter is going to rear its ugly head again for a bit....guess we really have no control over that....but I have been out walking and enjoying this nice weather.  I have spent some time in my craft room too.  On Sunday I visited one of our local scrap booking stores with my girlfriends and it got me inspired to make a couple of things.  Kraftin' Kimmie is having a challenge to follow this sketch designed by Krafty girl, Alice:

Here is my take on it:

I love to follow sketches as it takes the planning stage out of the card for me.  I am a S-L-O-W card maker so at least there is not quite as much thought in a sketch....just the image, the paper, the embellishments.....who am I kidding, it still takes me ages.....LOL!!!


Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ DCWV Green Stack
Image ~ Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps "Snips and Snails"
coloured with Copic markers
Sentiment ~ CARDZ TV stamps "Good Friends"
Circles ~ Creative Memories
Cuttlebug ~ Seeing Spots Embossing folder
Punch ~ EK Success
Flowers, buttons and embroidery floss
from "Use It Up' inventory

Thanks for stopping by today.  Go out and enjoy the beautiful weather but don't forget to make time to craft.

  5. LOL! I'm a really slow card maker too, so I feel your pain. And a sketch does take a little bit of time out of the equation. :) I love this little guy from Snips and Snails and your card is fabulous! Thanks so much for joining us at Kraftin' Kimmie!
    hugs, Sharon
