To You from Me Sketch Card....


Happy Hump Day Everyone!
We're midweek and I'm pretty excited about the weekend!! Nothing special going on but I'm hoping to get some rest and stamp a few cards....nothing could be better right?!!

My card for today uses Laura's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You and the color challenge from SCS to use Basic Black, Rose Red & Always Artichoke. The image you see is from Wish-RAK. I'm not even sure what company makes it but those flowers sure are cute and totally helped pull this card together! I really like how it came out. I didn't do a lot of embellishing or layering but I still love the subtle elegance of it. I do believe however; that clean & simple cards are extremely hard to make without some practice.....this is my 3rd or 4th card like this LOL!!

I'm off to the Oral Surgeon again this morning. He numbed him up pretty good yesterday and was able to *dig* in there and place those medicated gauzes deep in the proper spots. He felt a bit better after that so we'll see how it goes today. As for the surgery, Dr. Schwartz doesn't want to do it immediately since he's unable to heal properly right now......just gives Lil' Reg something to look forward to LOL! I better get the kiddos moving so we can hit the highway. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
TTFN,
Hugs,
