Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  I hope your week is going well.  Mine is looking pretty good so far.

A couple of weeks ago Lindsay's Stamp Stuff sponsored Tuesday Morning Sketches and I made a card with the great daffodils in a jar image.  But truth be told, I hated that card!  I was not happy with it at all, so I threw it away.  I had completely forgotten that it was part of TMS and a potential selection for the winner of the weekly card give away.  And, of course, because I threw it away it was selected by the winner.  I had to laugh!  So I told the winner what I did and that I'd make her a new card - this is what I came up with...


I like this so much more!  I followed the directions how to create this lattice embossing on the Scor-Pal website.  I decided that since I have this Scor-Pal, I need to discover what all it can do.  I wanted to keep this card pretty simple but give it an elegant quality.  I am pleased with the results.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Bazzil Basics
Copics:  B000, Y11, Y15, Y17, YG03, YG63
Tools:  Scor-Pal, CM oval cutter, white gel pen
Embellishments:  Pearls (Recollections)

And speaking of winners, a couple of weeks ago I won the Just Magnolia challenge and I received my prize yesterday.  I swear my squeal of excitement was heard back in WV.  Check this out...


Fun right!  I cannot wait to play with this stuff!!

Be sure to head on over to Lindsay's blog for some great inspiration and she always has a freebie!  Have a super day and thanks for stopping by!
