Not supposed to be here...

I'm supposed to be "up north" painting at my dad's place, visiting with both of my sisters, and my dad and his sister, but something came up, and I'm here instead. It's for a good reason, and I'm exactly where I need to be. I've managed a little time in the craft room, and have come up with a card that I rather like. It just so happens to fit a variety of challenges too! Nice when it works out that way. I started with Deconstructed Sketches, my first time playing there, then as the card came together I realized it would fit into City Crafter's Challenge and also Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. Neato!

Let's see...stuck to the sketch? Check. Chipboard? Check. Spots and dots? Check!





The sentiment looks blurry when you first see it. It really isn't; it's shadow stamped. Neenah white base, scraps of green and yellow. The sweetest ever little polky dots are from a Pebbles pad called Family Life, and the chipboard flower is from the same line. One MME yellow enamel dot, and two Doodlebugs blue dots. (More dots!) I die cut the yellow and green panels with MFT's Pierced rectangle stax. The stamp is TT, and the inks are Studio G (green), and Memento (blue). That's about it for me today. Happy dances everyone.
