Sweet Friend


Yesterday was a bit rainy and dreary so I snuck down into the studio while the two little ones were occupied with a movie and created a quick card.

I had been thinking about this set all weekend long-I made a trip to my local stamp store and found this adorable set from There She Goes and had to have it.  I proudly refrained from buying ALL the cute ones I saw and picked out 2 sets I knew I would use a lot and of course threw 2 new pads of design paper in my bag too :-)

I combined a few of my favorite challenges with this card.  CAS-ual Friday challenge this week is to use Polka Dots (on my patterned paper), the new Sketch for You to Try was posted this weekend so I wanted to get that in under my belt while it was fresh in my mind.  The last challenge is a color challenge which I haven't played with in awhile, the CR84FN challenge to use grey, yellow and neutral.  It also is good for the Circles challenge over at There She Goes.

Hope you love my card as much as I do-I'm going to have a hard time putting this one in the mail tomorrow.
