I wasn’t really sure

if I’d like working with this sketch this week. (I kinda may have  groaned a little when I saw it, to be perfectly honest!) By the time I was almost finished with the card, though, I thought, “Hey, this is pretty darned sassy!”  Thanks, Beate, for a sketch that had me making a card WAY out of my comfort zone!

Here’s some info about the stuff I used, if you’re interested. The stamp’s from an older Unity Kit of the Month (December ’08), the patterned paper and die cuts are from October Afternoon, with some random colored and ivory cardstock thrown in, too.  Ribbon, buttons, and bling finished the card off in a way that just made me happy, happy, happy!

For more sketchy fun, visit Beate, Cami, Charmaine, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo, and Sharon. I’m sure they had fun with this one, too!  And not to be missed? More Friends with Flair! 🙂  Angela and Unity Stamp Company will be featuring designs from their customers every Friday, so visit the Unity blog for a list of blogs participating in their new Friday fun. I hear there’s a prize somewhere . . .

I hope everyone has a marvelous three-day weekend full of family, fun, and doing what you love. For me, that means sleeping in a bit, reading a book, taking a nap, listening to music, dancing with my kiddos until we’re out of breath, and hopefully not having to be anywhere for anything! Good times.

    DANG, girl! I didn’t even see that stamp in the kit. I need to get it out because I LOVE that sentiment. Perfectly fits this week, doesn’t it?

    Your card is awesome, love the colors, love the sparkle and of course the sentiment.

    I hope you have a relaxing weekend. You so deserve it.
    Hugs!!!
