poppy



Happy Sunday!!!

Welcome to 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!

Pam initially had me absolutely stumped with her fancy smancy sketch. I ended up jumping in with both feet and came up with this "poppy" card....why poppy? I recently discovered the oh-so-sweet images by Poppy Stamps. It is a venture by Memory Box, a local Washingtonian company. I used Pink Paislee to paper piece the darling "peggy polka dot". I stamped peggy on a fabriano scrap and then finished off the oval scallop with dots using my Marvy Twinklette pen.

I can't wait to see your take on today's sketch!

Although it may not have seemed like it...I was out there in blogland last week...mostly lurking...why just lurking??

The kids and I were in fabulous Hawaii!!!!

Yes, we were there when there were threats of tropical storms...no, we didn't have any but sheesh it was humid. Most of the time there was constant drizzling which we actually thought was quite refreshing :) Thanks to my friend "I" who took some days off from work to play with us!!! We actually travelled with my friend "J" and her boy. The kids have known each other since they were literally babies and get along well.

I was hoping to meet up with some of the Hawaiian bloggers but when we weren't walking, touring or doing something else I was napping...I blame the humidity..LOL. Hey, it's vaca...

Anyways, I'll be back in full blogging mode tomorrow...I've missed you all!!
