*Feels Like Spring Again*

I am happy to report that the weather is finally back to "normal"... there is no snow in our forecast, no frost warnings... a bit of rain, a lot of sunshine and temperatures back to seasonal averages. Whew! I hope we don't get any more snow until sometime in November!

I have had the Card Positioning Systems blog in my Google Reader forever, but have never participated in one of their sketch challenges. I don't know why.... time? didn't appeal to me? didn't think of it? Who knows. The point is, I hadn't played before... until now! Monday I decided to get with it and do a card for their current challenge!

Go me!


I am very pleased with how this card turned out for CPS119. I like making tall skinny cards. And I have a thing for stripes and polka dots together.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Coredin'ations; Stampin' Up! Whisper White
*Patterned Paper: Black River Designs
*Ink: VersaFine black
*Stamps: Stampin' Up! Best Yet
*Tools: Big Shot; Labels 2 and circle Nestabilities
*Embellishments: dark brown grosgrain ribbon; aged copper brads; shimmer flowers from Michaels

I am looking forward to having lunch with Merlie and her darling girls this afternoon... at the girls' favourite restaurant. Yup, a feast at McDonalds is in my immediate future LOL!

The first word to pop into my head when I saw this was "fresh." It's fresh, and fun, and pretty! TFS
