Shine bright...



Hello and Happy Sunday!

I was hoping this weekend was going to be filled with crafting and staying in my jammies all-day-long, but it isn't quite working out that way.

That's okay, it's all good.  

I've been behind on challenges.  There are so many out there, it tends to get a bit overwhelming for me since I have a limited time for crafting:


Yes, I love color.

Yes, I love patterns.

Yes, I love texture.

I've been wanting to ink up the Strictly Sentiment set by WPlus9, a steal at only $6!  The "happy birthday" has been selectively inked, meaning I dropped the 'to you!'. 


I was patting myself on the back using those Basic Grey pins...to coordinate with the sentiment.

I was {thoroughly} inspired by the 



Seriously, what's not to love about all those colors and goodness?!!!!!

I also managed to incorporate Lisa's fantastic sketch:

no. 5


I've been a long-time fan of Lisa's sketches!!!  She rocks.

supplies:
cardstock:  PTI
paper:  Basic Grey Fact and Fiction
stamps:  WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments
ink:  memento tuxedo
other:  Basic Grey Fact and Fiction Pin/button, Jenni Bowlin canvas bloom and misc pearl

  23. Beautiful card, Amy, I love all the same things you do! Hope you had a wonderful day sitting in your pj's crafting! We had lunch with Amy(my daughter) bought some plants then came home and got a flower border done! More of the same tomorrow. We got rain, so it is the perfect time to plant. Have a wonderful Monday!
