I'm back again -- still hanging in here like a hair on a biscuit. I managed to eke out one card this weekend and I quite liked it so I wanted to share it here.
I was inspired by the sketch challege at MFT Challenge & Inspiration and some scraps that were laying on my desk already die-cut from pretty patterned papers using Blueprints # 25. I've been wanting them out of my way for weeks now, but can't make myself trash them.
Here is the sketch:
I used a PTI Kraft card base and panel with the Proof Positive cover up die to emboss rather than cut. I love the effect this one has with the embossing. Just enough background to add some visual interest without overpowering.
As you can see, I have the sketch reversed and on the left hand side. For some reason, I could not get the right side in my head. NO matter what I tried over there I didn't like it. "Feel Better" is stamped using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink on a hand-cut white banner from the Get Well Wishes stamp set and the flower is a die cut Gerbera Daisy from Ripe Rasberry cardstock and Cocoa (CTMH) cardstock. This one is a cheat, also. I had die-cut it before and didn't like the size at the time, so I saved this one in my die- storage envelope. I was so glad that I could be lazy and not cut a new one. ; D I finished it all off with a twine bow.
I really like this one - colors and all. I even lightly embellished the inside of to coordinate -- of course, if I were clever at all I would have photographed the inside...but I don't think that subject is even up for debate anymore. Wha-wha....Insert Debbie Downer face here _____.
That's all for me! I am pooped after a busy day (again). I don't know where the time goes! The days are flying by me and I can't seem to slow them down.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Please do so again.

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
