Hello Friend

Today on my CAC group, is sketch day. We are given a sketch and have to create a card. The sketch this week is from PAGEMAPS and is shown below:

and here is my card:

When I first saw the sketch I wasn't to thrilled about the circles. I have tons of punches but nothing that cuts that big. Then I remembered my large circle Coluzzle template. Easy peasy. I used BasicGrey Bittersweet - found this in a container which I didn't even know I had!! Have you ever had that happen to you?? ANYWAY, I added ribbon and a tag instead of stamping my sentiment on the paper since it's a little dark and busy. I was going to make this a birthday card since I need one but I couldn't get the words to fit on the tag - OH WELL, such is life :o) The sentiment is one from my new FAV sentiment sets, Thinking of You from The Angel Company. There are so many wonderful sentiments and the fonts are GORGEOUS!

So any big plans today? Abby is so excited because this afternoon she gets to take a class at the LSS. It's for kids and they are going to decorate a DVD tin. The class says for children 7 and up so I didn't originally sign her up. Debbie stopped me one day when I was in there and asked me if Abby was going to take the class. I said she's only 5 and it says 7 and up. Debbie said that Abby would be fine - she's always sharing her creations with them so they know what she can do. They have two more classes for kids this week - bday cards and explosion box. I signed her up for the bday cards but not the explosion box. I did one of those and it kicked my butt - no need to get Abby frustrated at such an early age, lol!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

I am a demonstrator for The Angel Company so feel free to contact me if you have any questions or are interested in purchasing anything!
