congratulations!

Happy Tuesday!  It is the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

This is the last week for our July Guests, I've really enjoyed having them as part of the team...check out Kim Kesti's sketch for this week:


Here is how it inspired me:

I played with my hugely neglected Pink Paislee Queen Bee goodies....isn't that sentiment just perfect for the sketch challenge?!



Actually, my card was going to be a Happy Birthday card but I set down the Happy Birthday sentiment on my work top...ugh, what was I thinking?!!!!!  When I do my mega crafting marathons, my area looks like a tornado has ripped through it...so, instead of taking the time to look for it {are you neat freaks cringing now?!}, my card became a Congratulations card...just so you know, I found the Happy Birthday...LOL.

You won't wanna miss the fabbie goodness from the other gals on the Skipping Stones Design Team:


Make sure you check out our July Guest Designers, we loved having all of you!!!

fun sketch! I can't wait to give it a try later! Love the way you used the frames in place of the paranthesis. Have to admit I was a bit stumped for a minute until I scrolled down and saw your gorgeous card!

LOL! It's good to know I'm not the only one who has to change my plan sometimes due to a stamp that has wondered off into the oblivion that is my desk! HA! Cute card!

Beautiful, Amy and yes, I can soooo relate. I have more space and I still make a riduculous mess.

Isn't Gallery Idol amazing?

Aimes said...

Ha! I'm not cringing, girlie - only because I am the tornado in my craft room creating chaos LOL!

lauren bergold said...

ok, i'm totally chuckling over the "lost sentiment"! my design decisions are often as scientific as that!!! it's gorgeous, however, and i'm sure someone will LOVE getting this! :)

Clare said...

Wow, this is SO pretty! I love the stamps, and that pretty flower!
Amy, you keep making me laugh by reading your blog - the tornado mess? Ugh, I sooo know what you mean! I'm a pretty stubborn little gal though, so if I'm not feeling too lazy, I will clean my desk up until I find that darn stamp! ;)
