Good afternoon/evening, blogger friends! My husband had to work this Sunday afternoon so I've spent a wonderful afternoon card making. My daughter decided on the birth announcement I'm making for her new baby so I cut paper, stamped, and punched this afternoon. We are doing 100 announcements! No, I didn't actually put one together, but I almost have all the paper cut and I'm at the half way mark with the stamping. Punches save a lot of time!
Anyway, I needed a break from the mass producing and decided to do a blog challenge. I went back to my Summer Smooches paper for the Freshly Made Sketch #35 this week. I loved the sketch by Jennifer Timko and can see myself going back to this sketch for more cards. I added some rich razzleberry ribbon when I remembered it had some dots that would go with the paper. Sweet! I also dug out my Build a Blossom set and punch to make the flower.
I just realized this would probably qualify for The Paper Players challenge #96 because there are definitely polka dots going on plus I think this card is clean and simple. One card, two challenges: love it!
One more picture: my oldest son graduated from the University of New Hampshire on Saturday with his doctorate in history. His smile says it all! (Wish I could have been there!) The picture was taken by one of his friends near the stage.
