Thinking of You

Hello and welcome! Happy Saturday! I hope you're weekend is going well and you are getting things done or just relaxing. I have been busy purging and going through my craft room. I am finally getting somewhere. I need to paint the walls and brighten up the space. Before it was my craft room, it was my husbands man cave/den area. It is painted a beautiful pumpkin spice color, but I need it more neutral as well as lighter and brighter to do crafts in. So after I cleaned up and reorganized my work table, I was able to do a card for the Freshly Made Sketches current challenge. Here's the sketch:


I used the Lovely Lily set for this card. First I added a little Balmy Blue to soften the area before I added my images. I choose an open square to let the blue come through, then layered the Lily pad and Lily flowers with foam mounting tape for dimension. I couldn't find a small enough sentiment so I pulled out my old manual Royal Typewriter and made one! I originally bought it to use on cards and just never did. This year I am going to mix things up a bit. I want to explore different stamp companies I don't normally use, try some different styles and mediums and just let my own style grow and see what I create! See my card below:

I like the clean, simple way it turned out. And I really like the typeset look...

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you will stop by again and see my other posts. Have a great rest of the weekend! 

Take care,
