Yikes – can you believe it’s Friday already?!? Crazy how fast time is flying by! Seems like I look up and it’s Monday, blink and it’s Friday. How about you guys – is the summer flying by for you?
My card today was inspired by two different challenges. After you finish here, do take a minute to go over to their blogs and check them out, okay?
The design comes from Freshly Made Sketches, #198:
The color palette was inspired by Pals Paper Arts Challenge #260:
With those two starting points and the desire to add a “Hello/Just Because” card to my stash, here’s what I came up with. Take a look-see:

Good morning – Happy Wednesday! So, if you’re following along, you’ll remember that last Monday was the day of the “Big Surgery” for my young friend. All went well – although they didn’t actually FIND the cyst that they did the surgery to find in the first place… huh? Appears that there was just some kind of blotch/shadow/mark on the X-ray. So, Matt’s a little bummed that he’s gone thru all this for nothing – but at least he got that wisdom tooth out and won’t be having to worry about it later (like when he’s 37 and has a full time job and has to try to get a day off and sick leave and all that nonsense!). And, the strawberry malt and Get Well Soup card went a long way towards making him feel better! Ice Cream solves much in life, yes? 😉
Today’s share is an all-out celebration of the new Garden in Bloom stamp set. It’s just gorgeous and has so many possibilities for creative fun. Take a look-see:
The inspiration for my card came from the folks over at CAS(E) This Sketch. Sketch #133, to be more specific. Be sure to head over there, and I’d encourage you to sign up to follow their blog – that way you get all the new design challenges and ideas right in your inbox!

Today’s share uses the beautiful new Designer Series Paper called English Garden. It’s reminiscent of the Painted Blooms DSP that was featured in the Sale-A-Bration at the start of the year. Like that pretty paper, the English Garden DSP can easily stand on its own – lending any card instant color and charm.
I’d also recently received the new Garden in Bloom set – and was itching to play. So, I combined the two and came up with this card for you. I even used some of the new Vintage Leaves stamps and matching die set (that I got as a bundle and saved myself 15%!). I had a real party, I tells ya and it was fun fun fun! 🙂
