Whew... I barely made it!

I look forward to Jen's sketch for you to try every Saturday on her blog. Here is my card for last Saturday's sketch. Just made it in time to post before her next sketch. I decided it was time to pull out my Flower Fusion II box. These flowers are so sweet and girly.

The felt flowers come in three colors: Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, and Chocolate Chip so those are the colors I used for everything else as well with the addition of Whisper White. On the Whisper White cardstock I lightly sponged the blue and pink inks before stamping with the En Francais background in chocolate. I distressed three edges and used the scallop edge punch on the fourth side. That piece was adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. Next I stamped a label from the Designer Label punch kit in chocolate chip ink on to Whisper White cardstock In retrospect I wish that I had used Baja Breeze cardstock for that piece instead. Chocolate Chip grosgrain and white tafetta ribbons were layered with the tafetta thread through and notted in the silver hodgepodge. A pink rhinstoen brad is the cetner of each of the felt flowers. Lastly I stamped a piece of Baja Breeze with flowers from the Simply Said set in Baja Breeze and then distressed the edges before adhering on to a Baja Breeze card.

Both of my kids are sleeping over at friend's so that means I get uninterrupted craft time and complete control over the TV plus No need to make dinner!!! A triple whammy!!! In my mind that means I'll make 30 different cards for all the challenges that have popped up this week and I'll be up all night without feeling the least bit tired after working all week.... HA! In reality I may get a card or two done and a rough draft of my customer email with my list of fall classes. Well, a little something is better then nothing right?

I added a new feature on my blog. Now you can see which of my favorite bloggers have recently added a post. Thanks for stopping by and now go get inky!!!
