Today I've created a card that is not for a DT commitment, but for a few challenges that caught my eye and I wanted to participate in. I hope you enjoy it ...
I have found lately that I truly enjoy working with a sketch!
With so many fabulous sketches out there in blogland, it's a wonderful 'starting point'.
Not that I don't just design on my own, but when the brain is mush (we've all been there, lol) sometimes it's just easier to have a helpful place to begin.
I also (when time permits) love making my own flowers like this one.
I sometimes just take the day and do nothing but make flowers. I then store them in various clear boxes identifying what company/dies I've used so when I use them on a project I don't have to rack my brain trying to remember (does that tell you I have several flower making dies? Yikes! lol)
Here are the challenges that caught my attention:
The Shabby Tea Room Challenge - In My Garden (Photo Inspiration)
Craft-Dee Bowz June Challenge - Anything Goes with a Bow
Paper Creator's Crafts Challenge - Anything Goes
The sentiment I have used on today's card was offered up over on the "Inspired by Stamping" blog along with matching design paper (which I did not use today but it's beautiful!).
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you're having a wonderful week!
Sure glad it has warmed up a bit ... actually had to put the furnace back on a few days ago!
What's up with that ... doesn't Mother Nature know it is JUNE?! LOL!
As always my friends . . .
