bff.jpg  Oops, I did it again.. I read the Limited Supply Challenge in my sleep.   I read ‘circles’ and I guess that’s where my brain fell asleep, because we were ONLY to use things with circles and no DP, no Cuttlebug, etc.  BOMB! LOL.   Well back to the drawing board on that one… if I get a chance. 

As for this card.. the reason it bombed is because A) I used DP and B) my ribbon doesn’t involve circles.  But I still like it.  Hopefully, my BFF will like it, too 🙂

Stamps: Circle sentiment by Kolette Hill, BFF sentiment by Memory Makers, Small butterfly from Small Sayings (SU!)

Colors: Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, GP white, Palette O’ Prints DP

Sooooo.. we’ll move on to today’s sketch.   Once again, I don’t have a sample yet.  My two youngest are sick this morning and made a special request that I give them a couple more hours of sleep.  

This is our sketch this week (THSC4):

thsc4.JPG reach-for-the-moon.jpg Lots of room for interpretation here.  Keep it as is, flip it, whatever you wish.  There’s no wrong way.  (I’m so easy!)..

I have a doctor’s appointment this morning, but I’ll be back with my sample asap.  Please feel free to play at will! 

Well, It’s after 5pm and I’m just now getting my sample done.  It’s been a weird day!  As you can tell, my schedule has a life of it’s  Anywho,  here it is above.
