It’s Saturday and Jen has another Sketch for You to Try posted. I had fun playing with patterned papers for this sketch. I hope you have a chance to play along with us, and in doing so you qualify to be a future Designer of the Month.
I was sorting through my Sweet Pea designer series paper and I came across a scrap with these fun flowers. I just love the colors in them. I knew I wanted to pull from the colors in the flowers to complete my card but I struggled with what image to use. Then I found a set that hasn’t seen ink in a very long time. I knew I had to use it. I colored the image from Garden Whimsy in Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie and stamped it on my Whisper White layer that I cut with the Circle Scissors. I actually decided to stay with the heart this week as one of my elements. I used the ladybug image from Garden Whimsy and combined it with part of the Define Your Life X*O*X*O definition stamp. The sentiment is from Love Bugs Hostess set. I love the whimsical feel of this card.

Today we have a local Easter Egg hunt. We are debating taking the kids. It’s the quickest hunt ever. It starts right on time and the kids have everything picked up within 5 minutes time. They divide the kids by age group so bigger kids aren’t trampling younger kids. Then I informed Roger that I have to finish up my Artisan Award entries. I am seriously thinking about scrapping entering this year. I’m just not feeling it this year. In the past 2 years I’ve loved everything I’ve sent in. This year I love what I’ve made, but I’m not overly excited about it. I have a few days to decide what I’m going to do. We’ll see how it plays out.
