First and foremost, I want to tell my mom Happy Birthday!! The good news is that you get to see your card today. The bad news is that it won’t be there. I am woefully behind on birthday and thank you cards to my whole family but I am pretty sure they understand.
Today’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was created by the fabulous Tui Nathan. It is wonderful and I had such fun using it. I actually got to stamp yesterday for the first time in a long time. Most of what you have seen over the last month was created before I went to training. I was so happy to pull out my new Occasions Mini products and play!
The colors from the Twitterpated DSP were my inspiration on this card and I wanted to use the Bordering on Romance flowers again. I didn’t have much time but the watercoloring is pretty fast and I really love doing it. While I haven’t even finished putting the set together, I just “had” to use the sentiment from Apothecary Art. I used some retired Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon to create a double bow and then topped it with one of the new large pearls. Of course, the flowers needed some pearls too! My mom is a fan of flowers of all kinds so I hope she’ll like this one. Hope your day is great, Mom!!
I mentioned yesterday that I finished my training on Friday. As of today I am out on a 3-day trip to get my final sign-off. I’ll be looking at your lovely entries on my layovers and I can’t wait to see what you create. The design team has outdone themselves this week. Make sure you go see their amazing work.
As a side note, there have been some issues with Blogger this week and the ability of the team to comment. Over at the FMS site there is a brief set of instructions on how to handle the word verification issue to ensure we can still comment on your projects. We love looking at them and want to be able to comment on as many as possible!!
Thanks for stopping in today. I hope the rest of your week is great!
