Thought for the day -

Hello is your weekend going? Is it cold in your neck of the woods? It is very cold here again today and windy. Both my daughter & I are under the weather. Sore throats & just feeling icky. Spent most of the afternoon napping. What a waste of time, lol.

I just have a quick post. This card is for the Friday Sketch Challenge. I had alot of fun with this sketch.I decided to do a very simple image- no coloring involved. I think it goes well with the papers motif. This is a Stampin Up stamp from an old set but I still love this set-it's called Garden Collage. I used Tim Holtz distress ink to stamp image.

The dp is by Basic Grey-Infuse. I love these papers! I am partial to pink & brown. The pink dp is by K&Co. I used my cricut to cut the flowers and added the pretty pink gem brad. The scalloped lace trim was done with a Martha Stewart punch and then I used a corner punch for the top corners- no idea who it is by. I've had it forever. The sentiment is a sticker by Karen Foster and I think it goes perfectly with the theme of card. I don't normally photograph the inside of my cards but thought I would show this one. Very simply done but pretty.

Well I think I am ready to go lie down again. I sure hope this is a 24 hour thing. I have tons I want to work on tomorrow. Hope the rest of your weekend goes well!
