Here for You 24-7 SFYTT


Yes...it is that time again! Time for another SFYTT brought to you by the fabulous Jen Del Muro. I really wonder how she does it! Week after week she brings us amazing sketches. This week is no exception. Unfortunately, I have been laying in bed all day and most of yesterday with the stomach flu, so I have to make this short and sweet so I can crawl back in bed.


I decided after much deliberation to use my new "Friends 24-7" stamp set from SU! and the coordinating "Friendly Words" jumbo wheel. I have been wanting to make a card with the damask print from this set as a focal point and this sketch was the answer. I had a single sheet of Making Memories paper that also had a damask print, so I paired them together. This is another reason why I love double-sided paper so much. It had a coordinating solid on the back.


I also used some Kaiser blossoms, martha stewart gem stickers and some yummy polka dot ribbon. I stamped the "here for you" sentiment onto white cardstock and then punched it with my circle punch and matted it with a large punch with the pink paper. I edged everything with my black inkpad. I was on Kim Hughes blog the other day and she had done that on a card. It reminded me to do it...I used to do it on *every* card and scrapbook page I created years ago. I always like it when old ideas resurrect.

I am so excited...The guest designer this month is Jody Morrow! I can't wait to see what she has created ! She always does the best stuff!
You can check out the other fab creations from the rest of the gals:Jen and Jody Amy ,Carole Susan Amy . They always blow me away with their creations so you will want to make a stop at each of their blogs! Thanks for fluttering by!


I'm gonna go crawl in bed...I will post supplies later!

I hope you are feeling better Kelly! A fun take on Jen's SFYTT... I just {{LOVE}} your card! Fun colors, the flowers add so much and the ribbon is just Yum-O!!

Is PTI white cardstock thicker than SU!? I've read from you and other bloggers they just love the quality the PTI paper has. Food for thought! :)
