Saturday Fun

Good Morning,

I started working on this card last night - but I messed it up and knew I really needed to start over.  So I did this morning and now I am really happy with my results.  I made this card for some challenges:  Friday Sketchers (sketch), Cute Card Thursday (color combo blue, orange and black) and Raise the Bar (celebrate summer).

I used an image that I got from Deedee's Digi's.  Deedee designed digi's (say that 3 times fast!) for Sweet n Sassy, but recently took on a solo career.  I couldn't be more thrilled for her!  This image is in a set called Little Miracles.

I printed the image twice so that I could add some dimension.  I used two different sizes of pop-dots.

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Bazzil Basics (Earthtone pack)
Paper:  Citrus Mat Stack
Copics:  B000, C8, E53, E57, YG00, YG03, YR16
Tools:  Corner Rounders (2 sizes), CM Circle Cutters

I hope that you like my card.

I want to take this time also, to thank my faithful readers.  Without you all, my little blog would simply fade away.  You've heard me talk about the month of June being very busy for me.  I need to start packing up my house as my children and I will be moving to Florida on June 20th.  My posts on my blog will be few and far between until I get settled in Florida.  I ask that you all keep me in your prayers.  I'd like to ask for a miracle that would allow me and my kids to stay here where they have friends, where they are familiar and continue the plans (or hopes) that they have.  Anyway, I hope that while my posts may not be as frequent that you still come visit me.  My commitment to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and my own challenge blog, Tuesday Morning Sketches, will remain intact and will be posted weekly.

I wish you an enjoyable weekend.

Hey Mel! I follow your blog in Google Reader; I stumbled across you via Hambo Stamps. Anyway, I just wanted to pop by & wish you luck with the Florida move. Take care, and I hope everything goes as easily & smoothly as it possibly can!

Hey Mel, great card!! I just saw that sketch last night and noted it on my little scrap paper. I love the dimension, it brings so much - uh - dimension to the flowers!
Hope the FL move either happens smoothly, or doesn't happen smoothly. Thinking of you and the family and will be sure to pop back in here when you're posting.

Hi Melissa the first thing that caught my eye on this card was that central flower image it is striking and to lift it up like that is great it creates a lovely shadow the colours and design are fabulous.
