Sketch For You To Try

Good afternoon! I need to take a moment and be thankful for the blissfully cool weather we are having today. This is the first day where it has not been 90 degrees before ten in the morning in, well, I don't know how long. The house is cool. The windows are open. There is a delightful breeze blowing. I wish it would stay like this all summer long!

I sat down to play with Jen's Sketch for You to Try this morning, and pulled out some Stella and Rose Gertie dp to help the sketch along. I played with a few sentiments in the panel, but ended up with this beautiful sympathy sentiment from Verve's Forever in our Hearts. I hate making these kinds of cards at the moment when they are necessary, so it's good to be able to stash a few away for a rainy day.

The three little circle images in the corner truly had me stumped. I ended up with some buttons, but I'm not sure if they'll stay there for long, lol. I many photograph the picture and then take them off. Shh! Don't tell! Or, well, maybe not. They're kind of growing on my the more I look at the card.... Hmmm...

I am off to book club this evening. We read the book "Mudbound" this last month, and though I really enjoyed the book, it was also a frustrating, aggravating read. You see, the book takes place in the deep south during the height of segregation. I guess that fact that I became so angry with the blatant racism is a testament to how far we have all come since not so long ago! I am excited for our discussions tonight, and to find out what book is next! Did I mention that one of our gals just had a baby on Friday?! I can't wait to meet the little guy tonight!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
