Sweet Sunday Sketch #54

Good evening! I'm literally popping in here just to show this card to you all. How did the week become so crazy busy? It sure didn't set out to be that way. But, c'est la vie?!

I really wanted to play with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch this week and had to get it up here before the expiration date passes. I pulled out my trusty Turning a New Leaf dp (still in love with this stuff) and a white ribbon to shake things up a bit. When I got the whole thing cut and placed, I realized that my image circle wasn't too large... Enter a sentiment!

I just booked a plane ticket to fly back up to Portland, OR for the weekend. My mom is flying up as well, and we're going wedding dress shopping with my sister! I'm so excited! I really wanted to be there for this once-in-a-lifetime event, and for a little while there it was looking like they were going to do it mid-week when I could not come. So a HUGE thanks to my amazing sister for working with the three of us (mom, myself, and future mother-in-law) to find a time when we were all available.

All right, I'm bringing this story back around. Since I'm heading back up to Portland, I'll be staying with Sharon's future in-laws once again. Therefore, I turned this little card into a thank you card. It will be a nice little treat to leave behind for their kindness once again.

I'm off to hopefully make another card, start some laundry, and watch Lost!! Yay! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. oh, I love what you did with the striped paper...I never know how to use it well. The white ribbon is stunning against all the colour :) Is it crazy over at the PTI blog or what!! LOL Sounds like a fun weekend. I loved looking for a wedding dress...I felt like a princess trying all those beautiful dresses on :) You will have a great weekend :) We had a fabulous dinner last night...incredible food and company ;) Gearing up for the Olympics in class for next week...we are 3.5 hours away from Vancouver so we're going to focus on them while they're here :) Found some great activities on the internet :) Yes, Yay Thursday!!

  2. Love the colours in this DP - could just roll around in them I love them so much LOL! Great work putting the DPs together, and the white ribbon is a lovely pop of "colour".

    I love wedding dress shopping! I enjoy it even more when you go with someone because it is simply amazing how when a bride comes out in a particular dress you know it is "the" dress! You don't even need to know the person and you can tell which one is "her" dress! What a fun weekend you are going to have - enjoy!! Your future MIL sounds wonderful and I'm sure she will love your card.
