MFT sketch...

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Hello strangers!  Wow!  Life just grabbed me by the tail there for a bit and it seemed there was NO time for crafting.  I was in serious need of some crafty therapy today, though.  Started today's card yesterday with MFT's current, but all-but-over sketch



I was determined to finish the darn thing today, although the crafting God's did not seem to be with me.  Nothing was going right...all the way down to my blog loading up for me to get it posted in time!!!  And ya know what???  After all this trouble…I'm not even sure if I like the darned thing!!!  But determined I am…they don't all have to speak to me, I guess.  You'll have to tell me what you think…(but kindly, please)…


Looking at it here…I think it's the colors…I usually pick a cheerier palette, even though I love that paper!

Thought it might come in handy at graduation time.  I used MFT's Peek-a-boo Circle Window die and the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die…both of which have come in very handy.  My die collection was in need of some stitchiness, (I know…not a word!) so I've been enjoying those!  The sentiment elements, including the die cut, were from Simon Says…the stars…from Papertrey.  

OK…gotta move on and I know you need to do the same!!!
Thanks so much for dropping in!
