Letters from a friend...

Happy Fat Free Friday! DH and I weighed in this morning and we've lost a combined 47 pounds!!!!! Woohoo, feeeeeeels good girls!! What a way to start the weekend!

And I know how much you love my sketches, so here's another for your collection. I had envisioned a really soft, pastel type card with this sketch. With my finished card however, I have a different color scheme and more graphic elements. I just got Karen Lockhart's Writing Letters stamp and had to try it out. I'm into this stationery look and although this card might not be your typical *stationery* card, I like the little letter writing elements. I made two Inchies for the main images of my card. One from the Writing Letters stamp and the other from the CHF Spanish Script Backgrounder(both from Ellen's store). I colored them with Copic markers and finished them off with Ranger Crackle Accents. I should have distressed them a little before adding the crackle so the Inchie would look old. The papers are from one of my favorite collections, the Making Memories Noteworthy line. Ribbon from May Arts from Archiver's. Sentiment was created from Papertrey Ink's Simple Alphabet. I stamped the sentiment like a sentence then cut it apart and pieced it on my card. I love making up my own sentiments for a card. The bottom edge was cut with Fiskar's postage stamp edge decorative scissors (remember having to have every single pair when these first came out? LOL)

It's supposed to be a great weekend with lots of sunshine so I'm reallyl looking forward to it! Have a great weekend and if you get time to stamp, how about trying out my sketch? Be sure to link me to your creation if you make something, I'd love to see it!!
