Hello Sweet Friend

I took some time out of my busy day for "me time"....
I came across this "new to me" challenge at "Paper Secrets" 
using the sketch challenge below.
 
 
This sketch just called to me, I think it was the doily that did it...
you all know how I love doilies.....
I know the sentiment looks washed out, its the lighting
for the photos...next month I am ordering a light box
which should improve things greatly!!
 
 
I even finished the inside of my card for once !!!
 
 
I love how it all came together...the flower I made while in Indiana
last week at Joan's Gardens.....I came away with a mountain of new stuff....
had a ball meeting up with other friends, Dar from Ohio, Judy from Indiana,
Bette and Gretchen both from Illinois and met a new friend, Rita from Arizona
(she was there with her dog in her big RV and camped at  a nearby state park)
and then of course visiting with Joan herself!!

Supplies used are as follows:
Graphic 45 Little Darlings DS paper
SU Very Vanilla card stock, Soft sky Ink, Sentiment is from Six Sided Sampler, and oval punch
Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Doily Die
Heartfelt Creations Flower and leaf and dies

So pretty! Love the papers, flowers, sketch, colors -- everything! That Cuttlebug folder is my favorite for embossing whole card fronts. I think I need more large folders.
