Happy Thursday! No more complaining about work, it is what it is and soon the week will be done! Last night I went to the Scrapbook store and met up with Michael, Renee, her husband and Corrine. We hung out at the store for a bit and chatted with the people coming in for last nights class. There was one lady there that told me I look a little like Tim Holtz, but taller so she called me Tim’s brother for the rest of the time that we were there. LOL! We all headed over to Panera for a little dinner and fun conversation. After that I came home and made my card for today. Sometimes it’s nice when a few hours after work can make your day!

Speaking of my card for today, it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and Rita has supplied us with this week’s inspiration…
Nice and simple! I felt the need to make something other than a Christmas or Halloween card so here’s what I came up with. The card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Soft Suede embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My panel on the right is some Calypso Coral embossed with the same. For the flag I used a piece of paper from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper Pack and cut it out with the Banners Framelits. Both the panel and the flag are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A circle punched out from a piece of Old Olive with the 2″ Circle Punch is up next and serves as the base for my flower and butterfly. They are both from the Polkadot Pieces Stamp Set and are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight. The flower is punched put with the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and the butterfly with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. For the greeting I used the And Many More Stamp Set and some Blackberry Bliss. The Bitty Banners Framelits cut it out and I edged it with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers to make it stand out a bit. All of the piece are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I popped up the butterflies wings to complete the card. A nice simple card that reminds us that Spring will be here again! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my day! I wish you all a very happy Thursday! 🙂
