In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines...

That's where I am right now! We went for a little mini-vacation for a few days to the piney woods of East Texas. It's ohhhh so pretty this time of year with the dogwoods and azaleas starting to bloom...I love it! I'll try to get some pics for ya.

Welcome to another Saturday Sketch for You to Try! This one (like last week's) was easier than I thought, probably thanks to my punches. I decided to do a quick & easy card today, whatcha think?

See all that white space? And no ribbon, no sparkles....Yes, you have the right blog. *wink* I tried something new, and I really kinda like it! Now, I'm not so sure about my flower squares...I tried to pull off the "inchie" look, but they're a little big...but other than that I really love this card. It took me all of about 30 minutes to make and photograph. Thank goodness, since my sick kiddo woke up just after I finished and cried most of the night. UGH.

Well I'm off to play with the fam...make sure to check out Jen's blog for the sketch and Joanne's sample, and Carole, Amy, and Susan's blogs for their take on this week's sketch. If you upload to SCS, make sure you use the keyword SFYTT so we can see all your creations. Have a great weekend!!

Stamps: Thankful Blossoms (Verve Visual)
Paper: Papertrey White, Basic Black, Felicity Collection (Scribble Scrabble)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Accessories: Copic Markers, White & Black Glaze Pens, Pop Dots, Marvy Punches, Brads (All My Memories), Paper Piercer, Mat Pack
