TSOT 599. Hello!!

 Hello everyone, it’s a Tuesday again and that means a new sketch and theme. I’m so glad you’re back and I’m glad I was able to find a time to be able to make a card. It’s been pretty exciting around my house lately grandchildren, skunks, mother-in-law, and just basically living. Have you ever had times like that? OK here’s the sketch down below and I made a card that sorta Kinda followed the sketch. I turned it a little bit added the butterfly where the banner should’ve been -well that’s a creators prerogative. What do you see when you look at this sketch, that’s what we would like to see and it doesn’t have to follow the sketch exactly once you get into it you might change your mind and do it a little bit different like I did. OK now the theme is large words And I think I kind of followed that pretty well. 

This is an old Stampin Up set that I always loved and when I saw the theme large words it brought it to mind. I hope you like my version….my vision of this sketch and theme. Don’t forget to check out all the other designers on the team.

 Looking forward to see what all of you will do with this sketch and theme! Have a lovely day!

Yellow Blossoms

 I can’t believe it’s almost the end of February. It seems like time just flies by anymore.  Here in Ohio had some warmer days this past week, I’m sure they won’t last but it was nice.  Warmer days and spring coming, that means it’s getting closer to gardening and flower time. I live in an old farm house that has a covered porch.  Each year I like to hang flowerpots.  They don’t get very much Sun though so I have to be careful what kind of flowers I plant in the pots.  I often use everblooming begonias they come in a nice assortment of colors.  Okay enough of my chit chat here’s my card.  

I went with yellow as the main color because I like yellow flowers, added a bit of pink and blue to the background by coloring alcohol markers on the back of Vellum then spreading the color some with alcohol. I did add a couple frilly springs of  Vellum behind the flowers, I know you can’t see them well in the picture but they show up just the way I wanted them to-subtlety is but adds a nice look.  Thanks for stopping in to see my Vision.
