beate's back!

Good Sunday morning everyone! Sometimes it is the easiest cards that say the most. I got the main image from Unity Stamps (when Sarah talked me into it!). I saw that Beate is back with her weekend sketch challenge and just knew I had to participate with this sentiment today.

The main image is large at 2 1/2" x 4" but I knew it would work well with a 3" X 6" layout and I was right...yay! I used some 29th Street Market (by My Mind's Eye) patterned paper and then turned it over for the complimentary bluish color. I added some Purely Pomegranate cardstock and ribbon along with an additional Verve Stamps complimentary sentiment and there it is! Easy schmesy lemon squeezy!

Thank you for the well wishes about the parade yesterday. Kyler and I had a great time! He rode on the float and I walked along side helping the walking kids pass out candy and handing out book marks and saying hi to everyone. It was much fun!

Oh, and please forgive me if I don't make sense sometime from here forward (I guess things would really be the same then huh? lol!) as I'll be scheduling my posts the night before they post due to school starting and that type of thing. Please be patient as I get used to my new schedule. Thanks guys!

I hope you all have a nice and relaxing Sunday! I'll see you tomorrow!

Hi Lorie. Love this card and the verse. Sounds like the parade was way fun! I'm sure a parade here in phx would have killed me...or melted me..whatever would come first! Have a great rest of the weekend!
