Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy Friday morning! I had hoped to get this posted last night before I went to bed but alas some fitsy twins and a long evening had me falling into bed as soon as I darkened my door last night. Little Miss Valerie loves to just walk up and down the hallway and always be on the move. And we couldn't fill her up last night. She wanted to eat all the time. Mr. Arthur has the biggest eyes for a baby and he rarely blinks. But he's very curious, always looking around to see what's going on. They are beautiful and I am one biased grammy. At any rate, back to my card....


I had a couple of challenges in mind when I made this card. First I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch for inspiration. I really love the fun design although I changed it a bit and used twine instead of the banner and just printed my sentiment on the background. The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and colored with Copics. I die cut the image with MFT Stitched Circles and inked the edges with Fire brick distress ink. The backing for the image was die cut with Spellbinder's Classic Scalloped Circles. And I was thinking of the Catch the Bug challenge again which is "going in circles" and I remembered this great stamp from Great Impressions that has these circle images on it. So I created my own background with the stamp and some MFT pigment inks. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

I am entering these challenges:

That's it for this morning. I think my next week will be hopping busy. Our youngest is driving from Florida tomorrow. He is taking a new job in Boston so at some point in December/January he'll be moving to Boston where my other son lives. So we'll be vacationing in Boston next year. Steve will be with us all next week. His brother Dan will be flying in next Wednesday for a few days. And they will get to meet the twins. So we are excited and thankful to have the whole family together for Thanksgiving. They probably won't be returning for Christmas so we will enjoy it while we can. Have a wonderful weekend! Our Indian summer is coming to a close today and tomorrow our high should only be in the 40s. I was so enjoying those 60-70 degree temperatures. Hugs to you all!

Your card is adorable. I had the same thing happen to me last night that I was too tired to post my card using this same sketch so maybe that was it, hehe.

I love your take on the sketch Donna, it looks fabulous! The little image you used is very sweet and you did a wonderful job with the colouring. I really like the background you created and the green and white twine finishes your project perfectly.
Cheers,
