Plant Kindness, Grow Love *SFYTT*

When I said there would be a delay, I really didn't think it would be THIS long! I sincerely apologize. For those of you who read my blog regularly, know that I have given up my craft space. I am still homeless as far as a new craft space goes. It is making it VERY difficult to get to my supplies and create. It is driving me bonkers, but I know that it will be remedied in time. You will all be the first to know when it happens! LOL! In the mean time, I am trying to take care of my family, get things ready for the baby and have a fun summer!


For this month's sketch, I chose to use some Flourishes stamps which I love. I am really obsessed with geraniums this year. I have always loved them, but I made a special point to plant quite a few this year. Last year when I would take Emma to summer school, there was a house that had the most beautiful yard and as I took a closer look to see what it was about the yard that I loved, it was the multitude of bright pink geraniums that caught my eye. So....I decided to use the geranium image, of course.



The papers are from an old MME slab and the ribbon is from PTI. The focal image and slide are die-cut using Nestabilities. The image was stamped with Palette Black ink and colored using copic and prismacolor markers. Very straight forward; but I love this sketch and can see myself using it again and again!



I am watching three of my neices and nephews today, so I had better dash, but thanks for fluttering by! Don't give up on me, yet! LOL!


I hope you all get a chance to play along this month. This month's sketch would be perfect for all of the Father's Day cards we all need to make! It is simple and straight forward without a lot of fuss!
