Seeds of Friendship

Good Afternoon! I'm back from my mini vacation up North. It was great to get away. Other than all the rain we had Sunday afternoon it was a great weekend. I hope to get alot of creating done with the balance of the week I have off. Today I have spent the AM relaxing and making this card. This afternoon I have to spend unpacking, running some errands and laundry. Tomorrow my sister Mary and I are going on a roadtrip to a scrapbook store that isn't near our houses so we only get there a couple of times a year. The balance of the week is a combo of stamping and other things I have been putting off doing (hopefully more stamping than the other things).

I made this card for Mary Jo's sketch challenge. Sometimes the easy sketches turn out to be the hardest. Luckily this one was easy for me. Since I didn't have a turtle saying I decided to focus on the flowers he is holding. Once I did that the rest came together pretty easily. I also decided not to blend as much as I usually do. A card can look great until I take a picture then you don't see the muliple colors because I blended too much and there isn't enough contrast. I like the result. Do you?

I hope everyone is having a good week. If you like my card let me know.

CS: SU Green Galore, Night of Navy
