What You Have in Your Heart

Happy Thursday morning!!!  Well, last night was an early bedtime for me...lol....the first FULL day with my new sweet class PLUS hours of planning and prep afterwards, made this little cardmaker pooped!!  I am so glad I had these cards made a few days ago...and I'm even posting them in one sitting...just to  save typing time :)  I was so intrigued by Stacy's Curtain Call Colour Challenge this week that I had to make 2 cards.  What beautiful poppies in this inspiration photo :)  I am a big fan of Creative Mint where it came from :) This first card is my latest go-to sketch and the second card uses the current 2 Sketches 4 You sketch.


I wanted to use some more of my new SU ribbon in peach parfait (I am changing this to orange creamsicle!!LOL) and the new aviary set :)  I don't have a cutesy bird cage stamp, so thought this set would be a nice addition to the studio :)  Okay, I hope to get to Mercy's sketch tonight...have a fall themed card in mind :)  Hope your week is going well...TGIF tomorrow!!! The first of the year is the sweetest!!!

Great use of the Curtain call colours, Maureen! It felt so weird not having to prep a sample card, but alas the Color Dare came through. Hope you've got a nice class! I'm exhausted as well with having to switch my sleeping/waking schedule by two plus hours! Even showed up for my daughter's piano lesson at our old time and not our new time....ah yes...the joys of early September having to figure out who goes where when. Have a great day.
