Tuesday Morning Sketches #418

Hi everyone!  Thank you for stopping by.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I think you're going to like it's simple elements and format.  But don't get me wrong, it can certainly be elevated.

I needed a quick, simple card to write a quick note to my son's friend who is in boot camp - I'm sort of her adopted mom like I am for so many of my kids' friends.  I have to say I rather enjoy being an everybody's mom.  When I was a kid there was Kool-Aid commercial where this mom was a Kool-Aid mom and gave all the kids in the neighborhood kool-aid.  I wanted to grow to up to be that mom.  Goal reached!

Okay, so back to stamping.  My card features Papertrey Ink's Sunflower Harvest stamp set and the dies are from MFT Stamps.

I apologize about the lighting - it looked better on my phone.  LOL!    So it's basically a one layer card with the exception of the sentiment piece.  Easy card that would make a great note card set.

Please come on by the TMS blog and see the amazing cards my team created.  Wow!

Using the big sunflower was a great idea for this sketch! I really like the way you used the striped dsp, alternating directions between horizontal and vertical for some eye-catching fun!
