Time well spent...with you my friend

I've been so busy prepping for my Open House that I just wanted to stamp for "fun" today. I checked out a couple of sketches this morning and will be trying my hand at a few more, but today's SCS sketch was super easy for me as I've had this Gerbera Daisy colored and cut out for more than a year -- time to use it, wouldn't you say!?!

Card Materials:
(stamps and papers from The Angel Company)
Stamps: Time Well Spent (retired), Gerbera Daisy
Accessories: Juliette Soar with it Collection and cardstock, colored pencils, Burnt Umber palette ink

Confession time...I was talking on the phone with my parents while I was taping all of these layers down. Somehow I dropped my burnt umber ink cube, face down and it bounced twice - yup, across the card! I ended up pulling all the layers apart and inked the edges to help blend it in. It actually looks nicer this way - phew! Lesson learned, do NOT multi task when working with ink and tape! tee hee... Thanks for visiting with me today - I appreciate it, friend!!

I think your card is gorgeous, maybe you should drop a pen often--no one would ever know the difference if you didn't say anything.
