What a great day... the sun is shining, the landscapers are working in my yard, I don't work today, I have no errands to run, and I'm heading out soon to meet my mother-in-law for lunch.
After my morning walk with the dog, I was able to come home and get myself cleaned up... and instead of heading off to work, I went down to my stamp space to create for a little while! Of course, I had to blog surf for a while first.
While surfing, I came across a great sketch challenge over at Stamp Something. This is my first time participating in their challenge. I just fell in love with the sketch and had to go play.
It took me a little longer than usual to make this card... I knew I wanted to use this sketch and then I knew I wanted to use this great Wild Asparagus paper.... but then the rest of it didn't flow so nicely. I like the result, but it was difficult to get the card to come out of my desire to create.
