Another SFYTT

Here we are in my second week and I am STILL super excited that Jen del Muro picked me to be her Sketch For You To Try guest designer. I mean, seriously, what a HUGE honor!!! This weeks sketch is just as fabulous as last weeks, but man did it kick my butt!! I did my original card, which can only be viewed on Jen's blog, but I had yet to do another one for my blog. I had planned on stamping yesterday, but instead I went to my sister's and held my nephew for 6hrs while she helped her stepson study(long story). Jared was an angel, except when I tried to lay him down, until I left and then apparently he missed me so bad he was fussy for hours, at least, that is what I think happened!!LOL!! Just in case you are wondering, he is doing fine, but he definitely has colic, poor kid!! Anyway, I planned on stamping today, but I had a HORRIBLE morning, so I decided not to, and then at 10pm decided that I just needed to suck it up and make a card, stamping is my therapy anyway right? Plus, Jared is coming here to spend a few hours with me tomorrow while my sister and her husband do some much needed shopping and bonding time. Times like this are rough and if you don't take care of your relationship, it can fall apart. At least, that is MY theory, do you agree? Blah Blah, that's totally not why you are here!! SOOOO, I know I used this stamp on last weeks SFYTT card, but seriously, I found this awesome paper by Moxie, and I HAD to use it!! It is double sided paper that I found at my local scrapbook store(that I JUST found) and is super duper yummy!! Howdy Cowgirl- Sophia is the next stamp of the month club release, so you better get to signing up, ya hear!! Just be sure to let Christie know on your registration form that I sent ya!! Anywayyyyssss, I colored my Sophia in with my SU markers and then cut her out with my circle nesties. The paper was also cut out with the Nesties, but then I cut of part of it to finish my circle. The ribbon is chocolate taffeta and pomegranate stitched ribbon(closest to Rose Red that I had) and the brads are SU silver brads. I punched holes to put the ribbon through so it didn't have to go around the scallops. I sponged all the edges and added my sentiment which came from the SU All Holidays set. Well, that is all for me for now!! Be sure to go around and see what Jen, Amy, Carole, Shannan and Susan have done with this amazing sketch!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! Be sure to tell the people you love how you feel before you say goodbye, you never know what may happen!!

  8. Sorry hon, been there and totally get your position. My sister and hubby had a hard time getting into the groove of a new baby and I had to help a lot at the beginning and then they got their routine together and it got better. She's very lucky to have you on her corner!

    All I can tell you is that the Jared is so lucky to have you in his life and you him. Gaven has enriched my life 100 times over and I'm sure Jared will do the same for you.

    Love your card - you're doing an amazing job as guest designer. I look forward to seeing what you come up with in the upcoming weeks!

    Huge hugs friend!
