Hello again!  In between bus runs, groceries, preschool and ortho appointments, I still managed to make a card for a friend of mine!  Unfortunately, the grandmother of one of my close friends passed away last week, and I wanted to be sure to send her a card to let her know that we are thinking about her and her family in this time.

When I saw the challenge on the Friday Mashup, I knew I needed to just sit down and make some time to do it right then.  I used the beautiful colour combo from Create With Connie and Mary, and the current Sweet Sunday sketch challenge for more jumping off points.  My card came together pretty easily.  I love that when that happens... and playing along with challenges seems to make it happen!


 Here's my card!

My Big Shot is still not fixed, so I had to cut around this stamp... but hey, I think it worked out just fine!  The colour combo is perfect for this card... it seems sort of warm and caring... am I weird or what?  I used dimensionals to pop the sentiment part of the stamp up off the Soft Sky panel, and then used more dimensionals to pop the Chocolate Chip panel off the Chocolate Chip DSP.  

Thanks so much for looking.  Leave me a comment letting me know what you think about my card, and so that I can check out your blog and we can be friends!  Have a great 'rest of the week'!!

PS... the little glittery things at the bottom of my picture is NOT dust!!!  Apparently the little sparklies in my black fabric are very visible in photos!  I cannot promise that there isn't dust everywhere else in my house though!!!
