Fluttering By to Say Hi!

Yes, it is Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday again and BOY did that week go by in a flash! Last week was super insane, my dear friends! SUPER INSANE! I hope that those of you in the US enjoyed your holiday weekend! We spent the weekend relaxing with no big plans and it was fabulous! We had beautiful weather for the majority of it, too!

I do feel like I am TERRIBLY behind on my blog reading and visiting! If you haven't seen me in a while, don't worry! I haven't forgotten about you...just trying to catch up! LOL!

I have a confession to make. I was off on Friday due to being awake around 3am with a cough that wouldn't quit (that is still haunting me, actually), had Saturday and Sunday and MONDAY off for the holiday weekend and I spent precious little time in my studio. I don't know why, but this weekend simply wasn't meant for me to create! BUT...I did get this card done and that makes me happy and I will get some other fun stuff done during the week, too, and that will make me happy, of course.

Fluttering By to say Hi!


BUT...I DID create my SSD card at the last minute last night! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this week's sketch!!!!! So simple and so fun! It was like it was MADE for a Jingle card. Just say'n.

Yup. Just my Dandelion Dreams stamps from Skipping Stones Design, some baker's twine, and simple white cardstock. A bit of dry embossing and a few pop dots and we have magic, folks!

So head on over to SSD and check out what the other Stamp Tramps have created and then create your own card for a chance to win FREE STAMPS!

I hope your weekend was FABULOUS! I'd love to know what you did!!!! Leave a comment and let me know!

I love it! How did you emboss the frame around it like that? Looks so cute, just a little extra frame around it makes such a difference!

Oooooh! Bad, bad cough tormenting my sweet lil' friend! I hope you feel a kazillion (my favorite made-up number) times better this morning! Love your card! I think it takes total genius to create a simple LOOKING card that is actually WAY more complex than it looks! Huggrz! P.S. If you get a chance, go peek at my blog & check out 2 swaps being hosted by MOI! I would TOTALLY love to have you sign up for one or both!

Hope you're feeling better! Love your card, especially the baker's twine. Bet that twine would be super-cute for some Christmas cards!

Oh my! This card is wonderful! Simple and GORGEOUS!

... I have to mention, too, that when I see your bio photo there's a split second during which the dark-colored wall hanging behind your head looks like a JAUNTY pig tail on one side of your head ... makes me giggle every time ... :)
