You Brighten My Day!


It feels good to be back in a routine with my Girl Friday friends. Beate has posted a Friday Sketch, and Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Laurie Schmidlin, Jenn Balcer, Mary Jo Albright and Sharon Harnist have plenty of sample inspiration to go along with it. Hope you can carve out some time for stamping today. It does the heart good, you know!?

I used a new set from Our Craft Lounge, Ducky Days, for my card today. I loved this little rainbow image, and I had only one person in mind when I picked out these papers! CherryArte is the line of these pink, orange and green papers. The main image is stamped with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink from Tsukineko and colored with Copics and Spica Glitter Pen. Next I trimmed it out and matted on Stardream Metallic  Cardstock – This one is called Flame. I get mine from the super sweet folks at The sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment sets that I got from Taylor. It’s called A Year of Sweet Sentiments.


The long layout card isn’t something I do too often. Since I prefer to make cards that open from the top (they stand for display better is the only reason) I rotated the sketch. The bling and the paper flowers are from KaiserCraft.

I’m glad you stopped by today. We’re expecting company this weekend, and I’ve got a long list of things to take care of today. Hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
