My Heart of Comfort

Good morning!!  I am off early this morning to a huge garage sale in the community where two of my sisters live here in town and where we'll eventually be building next year.  It's one of the city's biggest sales and people even come from out of town to go to it.  It's where I sell some of my cards and sell old stamps...yes, I sell them.  My likes change or the style is too outdated or I just need room for all the new stuff!!! LOL  I run into a lot of people I know and it's usually a fun day if the weather cooperates :)  Today's card is for the Card Patterns sketch.  You could interpret it as a circle card, like I did, or as a square card with a circle on it.  I had this My Mind's Eye dp on my scrap pile and thought I would make this a bright and cheery card.  I struggled a bit with the flowers as nothing was showing up against the bright background!!  LOL  After switching flowers and buttons around, I came up with the pumpkin felt flower and tied a big bow on the button.  No library card on this one, but here's a clip!! I just love them :)  The sentiment is from Verve's One Person again.  Here I thought I'd be using my Blessings set first and haven't even inked it up.  The sentiments are a bit bigger so I'll have to wait for a different sketch with a big panel.  Have a wonderful Sunday...wish me luck at the garage sale!! :)

Stamps: Verve One Person
Ink: versafine onyx
Paper: PTI hibiscus burst, kraft, cream; SU kiwi kiss, burmuda bay; MME dp

Hope your garage sale was successful! How fun is that. If it were closer I'd definitely participate :D Your round card looks wonderful - love the felt flowers and colour combo.

Hubster is exhausted and very stiff and sore. I get no rest as it's Mother's Day cards all the way. Kids are delighted as they get extra TV time today LOL! Have a great week ahead.

Beautiful card! I can't ever bring myself to make a circle card, but now I'm feeling like I really should get one done. I just adore that little library clip!
