Prettie Thursday!!!

Happy Thursday!!! :D We are having the most fabulous weather here in Houston. I just {heart} cool, crisp mornings! :D Mornings I can straighten my hair and it won't frizz up!!! LOL!!! :D Well yesterday was a pretty sad day for me. Since Hurricane Ike I haven't been back to work in Galveston, but yesterday I got to go back and work there for the day and I just couldn't believe the destruction as I drove in. I mean you see things on TV, but it just doesn't prepare you for the real thing. My heart was saddened and I hope they can get things back to normal soon!!!

Stamps: Sweets for the Sweet (Paper Pretties) Paper: Evensong Dp & Cranberry, Sorbet, White Daisy & Olive CS (CTMH) Ink: Copics & Brilliance Graphite Black Ink Accents: White Daisy Bigger Brads (CTMH) Felt Flower, Mat Pack & Piercer & CB Swiss Dots

Well let's get on with my card, shall we?!?! I had my Evensong paper still sitting on my table and thought it would be cute paired with Sweets for the Sweet! :D I used a sketch that Danielle challenged us to use about two weeks ago...I guess better late than never, right?!?! I loved this sketch so I just had to do it and I thought it would be a great card to send with some Christmas goodies!!! It's a square card, go figure and I used Cranberry CS as my base. I then added a 1/4" smaller piece of Sorbet CS that I ran through my CB using the Swiss Dots folder, and used the reverse side and adhered it to my base. Next I placed two different squares of dp down and started working on my image. I just love this super cute image!!! I colored it with my copics pulling the colors from my paper. Next I layered my image onto a piece of Olive CS and stamped the sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black Ink under my image. I then paper pieced around the image and added a pretty red felt flower. Once my image was pop dotted onto my base I added two White Daisy brads and called it done! :D It's pretty simple but I think it's missing something, maybe I should add some ribbon?!?! Well that's it for today, thanks so much for stopping by!!! But you'll want to stay tuned because I feel some blog candy comin' on!!! LOL!!! :D

Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D

I think it's darling as is - don't change a thing (though I'm sure if you come up with something to change, it will be fabulous!). I hope things in Galveston get back to normal soon. I haven't been there myself, but my hubby has been there at least once a year for work - he's heading there next month - so it will be interesting to see how things are then. Hope you have a great weekend!
