MY FIRST SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY


My upline and friend Nancy Riley is the guest designer at Jen's SFYTT for October.
These two ladies are very talented!!
In honor of Nancy I am trying my first SFYTT. I love this layout!!

You know when I first saw the new SU colors I wasn't all that excited about them but the more I work with them the more I am liking them. I have to admit the big wigs up in headquarters know what they are doing...don't tell I called them big wigs :0)

I seem to have this problem when I am making cards. I wait until the card is all done and then I try to decide where to put the sentiment. Does anyone else have this problem. Sometimes I don't even leave a space for one. Any advice on what you do?

HOW DID SHE DO THAT??

Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks, Fresh cuts and Live Like You Mean It
Ink: Stazon Black, Riding Hood Red, and Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Kiwi Kiss and Bella Rose DP, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red Whisper White and Black
Tools: Cuddlebug
Embellishments: mini black buttons

The inside of the card is stamped with the same flowers along the left edge.

My daughter in law told me my picture looks mean. She says I smile a lot and the picture is not smiling. FYI: I am not mean :0)

Hope everyone had a marvelous Monday and will have a terrific Tuesday.
