On the day I fall in love, sky will be a perfect blue...

Ok, so today has to be my least favorite day of the year. Yep, the Monday after Spring Forward. BIG GIANT YUCK. Every year I curse the person who makes us lose an hour...and if I ever find him (it has to be a him, only a man would decide to do something so stupid) he will be very sorry!!

So now that you've heard my rant *wink*, here's my card for this week's MFT Sketch challenge! I decided it was high time I did an "over the top" card...and I'd forgotten how long those take! I also decided to try my hand at Pam's famous Ribbon Blossom. I think I need more practice.


I tried to make it as springy and fun as I could...and yes, I used that darn Imaginisce paper again. Have I mentioned that I love it?

I hope you're having a great Monday...I'm off to grumble some more about Daylight Savings...

Stamps: Rain or Shine (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Papertrey White, Watercolor, Imaginisce For Peeps Sake
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black & Vintage Sepia, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Copic Markers, Diamond Glaze, Marvy Scalloped Rectangle & Oval Punches, Dimensionals, Ribbon (SU & May Arts), Baubles, Photo Corner Punch, Swarovski Crystals, Quickie Glue Pen, Ticket Corner Punch, Jumbo Sponge Dauber, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

You did such an amazing job here. Of course, last week I ran out to grab this paper after seeing it pop up everywhere online.

See today, I was thrilled about DST because my little guy slept till what was SUPPOSED to be seven. Even though it was actually **really** still six, it was nice to roll over and see a time not starting with a five or a six for a change!!

I'm hopelessly addicted to this paper, too! Yummy! Adorable card - love the ribbon puff. My grandma used to have a little weiner dog who had a yellow sweater just like that! Too cute!

Girl - you totally crack me up! I agree 100% about it being some guy who invented DST. Love, Love, Love your card! I've got to put that ribbon blossom on my "to try" list!
