FWF-Feels Good!

Feels good to just create. I always enjoy the week after the Dirty Dozen reveal. This week is always kind of my "off" week for DT commitments. I took advantage and got some Unity inky. Love these stamps, always will, and it always makes me happy to play with them. I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch for this sweet baby card. Finally I'm getting a card made so I can send out a little gifty to my dear friend Becky. Better late than Never, right! So I pulled out my most recent KOTM from July. Those circles are way cute and perfect for this sketch. I took it a step further and did up the inside cuz I HAD to use those sweet zoo animals along with the happy new baby sentiment! Cute huh?!
Up next is another fun card I created with this week's sketch challenge on SCS. I was determined to knock out a few challenges this week, and that I did! I had been seeing some of the June Bug dp by Basic Grey out in blog land and decided to pull mine out. It's fun to go back and see what dp you have and fall in love with it all over again.
As simple as this card may look, it really took me a while to pull it together. I think it was all the layers on the sketch and the busy patterns on the dp I used. In the end I decided to make one of the layers ribbon.
Alright, off you go. Head on over to the Unity Blog to see the full Friends With Flair line up! Always great inspiration there today. Have a great weekend!
We'll be busy, busy with soccer. It's our first tournament with J's select soccer team. We are anxious to see how the boys play togethere at the first game. I don't know what he is more excited for, to actually play or to just wear his new uniform! He's so proud.

  10. Great cards - so sweet and perfect for the occasions. I was not only inspired by your layers, DPs, and stitching, but also by the fact that you mentioned it took you forever. Sometimes after having spent an hour on a card (a very peaceful hour), I get impatient for those times when I can just "whip up a card" - thanks for your encouragement.

    Hope the soccer games go well.
