Isn't it great when...



Isn't it great when you get your household chores and errands done and still have time to craft?! That was me today. I had an extra couple of hours with which to craft, and so I did. I'm still in the "no stamps" mode from the CASual Fridays challenge, but this card is a bit too busy to qualify for that. It does, however, fit perfectly with the Unscripted Sketches #203 Challenge! Pop on over and see all the wonderful interpretations the DT made using this sketch. One is more amazing than the last! Here's the sketch:

I can see endless possibilities with this sketch, can't you? So I made a really fast card. And as I mentioned, I was still in the no stamp mode. I guess I just wanted to stay out of the box for a while longer. Here's my card:


It went together easy peasy.  SU white cardstock base, W R Memory Keepers die cut, a scrap of OA dp, and some random ribbon. I rather like it, even if it is too busy for CASual Fridays. Have a blessed Palm Sunday tomorrow!

Another fabulous no-stamp beauty, Bev, the blue hues (just had to put those words together!) and chartreuse are perfect together and the echo of the DP pattern in the sentiment panel is so inspired! The splash of pink for the heart shouts out just how you feel about your Dad ... it's simply a delight! Anita :)

A beautiful card to honour someone so dear to you!

You are inspiring with the "no stamps," Bevie! As a non-scrapper, it is a challenge for me to go that route, but I do have some fab PB stickers, so I'm hoping to get a card done for CFS. Maybe I'll try your "sleep on it" theory and see if I ping anything!!
