Summer Sketches

Hello, and happy Friday! I spent some time in the craft room this afternoon. Do you know I sing and do a happy dance when I come to this favorite spot and put the music on? 

Some creative ideas have been lingering on the back burner for days.  I really loved the Color Hues challenge to use Turquoise and Coral. I made a card but being in the midst of difficult circumstances I just didn't end up liking it too well. It is posted HERE if you missed it. 

Today's card uses those colors but with a bright, airy feel, and lots of white, reflecting my mood on this hot summer day. Hope you like it! 

Trying to use the Freshly Made Sketch yesterday was like work - and that sample is in the trash. The sketch, was not the problem, it's fabulous! Can you believe they've offered weekly sketches for a DECADE?

Adding a pale stenciled panel in the background allows the florals and colors to blend well on my card. Much better, I think.

That's all for today! Thanks for your visit, stay well. Happy crafting!

Be yourself.

     Find delight in your craft.

             Make something beautiful!
