TESC125 - Thinking of You

Wow! I just realized I haven't posted anything all week! Definitely not from a lack of not crafting. :) I've been busy as a bee with this being the last week before my little soon-to-be-1st grader starts school next Wednesday. I'm so excited for him! I've spent all this week savoring the moments I get to spend all day with him until school swiftly sweeps him away for some "higher" learning. :) I know I've said that I'm looking forward to him starting school...Lord knows I could use the break, but it's also bittersweet. He's just growing so quickly right before my eyes and I can do nothing about it but sit and watch. *sigh*

At least it's a Friday, right?? I'm so excited to share with you the fun sketch for the week...


Won't you carve out a special moment to yourself to get crafty and play along? It doesn't even have to be a card, but whatever you create, I'd love to see it!


And I just wouldn't be me if my translation of the sketch didn't look a curiously bit unlike the sketch, at best, right? :) LOL! I thoroughly enjoyed making it though. :)

I stamped my favorite little precious butterfly in Sahara Sand from the set, Summer Afternoon, right onto my patterned papers from Webster's Pages Life's Portrait collection. My greeting was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia from the lovely sympathy set, Care & Comfort. My little doilies are from Martha Stewart that I spritzed with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. The gorgeous coral flower is from Prima and I dazzled it up a bit with some of the Chunky Sprinkles Iridescent glitter from Stampin' Up! I also added a vintage ticket and put a tiny strip of patterned paper on top of it with flitting butterflies. :) I just had to finish off my card with a little more bling using Taylor's Tiny twinkles...LOVE these little guys!

Let's check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has to share with you!
I have some goodies in store to share with you next week...so I won't be disappearing on you like last week. :)

I've also added a few cards back into my Etsy store.

Have a great weekend guys and thanks sooo much for your visit. :)
