My Paper World Sketch #10...

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! We are just a few days closer to the weekend (and a three day weekend at that) and I can't wait!!! I will be away all weekend staying at my brother's house. My SIL's b-day is this weekend and they are having a PARTY, so we have made plans to stay there for the whole weekend...should be fun. They live in Houston too...so it' s not like we will be far from our home, but I just don't want to be driving back and forth...not with these gas prices!

Well enough jibber jabber this morning...let's get to the card! This card is for sketch #10 over at My Paper World, it's a great blog with some fabulous sketches. She has a sketch challenge every two weeks so go check it out!!! :D I used my Whoops-A-Daisy paper for this one...I just love all these colors!!! I hand stitched my card using some embroidery thread...it took forever and the inside of the card is a disaster...(LOL)!!! :D But I felt like it needed something and this did the trick. I could have faux stitched it but I like this alot better!!! :D Now that I am looking at it I feel like I should have added some brads to the sentiment...just looks plain to me. Oh well, I am not gonna go tearing it apart now...it is what it is!

Stamps: Happiness (CTMH) Paper: Whoops-A-Daisy B&T, Ocean, Watermelon & White Daisy CS (CTMH) Ink: Sweet Leaf & Hydrangea (CTMH) & Brilliance Graphite Black Accents: Clear Button & Colonial White Waxy Flax (CTMH), Embroidery Thread, Green Polka Dot Ribbon (American Crafts), Pop Dots, Mat Pack



Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D
