Good Morning sweet peeps! :)

I was going to write this up last night, but I couldn't stay up late one more night longer, so it was lights out for me by 9pm last night.....boy did I need it! I feel soooo much better this morning. Chest cold still lingering, but I didn't really expect that gone overnight. :) I'm hoping to scoot over to my local scrapbook store this morning to stock up on cardstock and then after that, maybe some blueberry picking. Yum!

I have Jen's Saturday Sketch For You To Try to show you today and it's another one that I know is going to be a HUGE go-to favorite of mine!

I have been house (and dog) sitting all week for my in-laws since coming back from Maryland and I only brought basic supplies with me while I was there. So please forgive the lack of 'thinking outside the box' with my card this week! Being away from all those supplies I've accumulated really makes you appreciate them a whole lot more when they're not available to you! LOL

My sweet friend Kadie gave me this cutie patootie stamp while we were in Maryland together and I couldn't resist stamping it up for this card! It's by Elzybells and when I went to their website to find the link to the stamp, I was sad to find out that they're closing down! I really hate how many online stores are being affected by this recession. It's so sad! But when there's a closing, there is usually a huge sale and there are tons of stamps at 50% off going on right now (not that I'm trying to enable you girls or anything)....depending on how much I sink at my LSS, I may have to make a small purchase myself! haha

As usual, I colored in Girl In Car with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. I'm often asked how I get my colors so intense on my images, and all I can say is that there is usually very little water on my brush. There's just enough to move the ink where I need it to go and the rest is all ink. Those YUMMY papers are from My Mind's Eye Clever-Pretty Girls collection.

You DEFINITELY want to check out what the SFYTT girls created with this sketch. I love to check out their cards because I just love how they all put their own signature style on their cards!

Such a very sweet card and a great take on the sketch. Very yummy papers, and IMO one can never go wrong with buttons and organza ribbon. I will never understand how you Reinker Watercolor Gals achieve those rich coloring effects!
