FTL 107 and...

This will be a quick post because there are some big changes happening for my family in the next several months.  I am going to try really hard to keep posting several times a week, but soon I will share with you what is going on and I think you will understand why I may not be stamping as much as usual.  But, NO, it's not a baby.  It's actually not really "good" news, but it is what it is and we're making sure family hears from us first ;)  Have a great day!

This layout comes from the FTL 107 sketch.  Check it out!

All supplies used are SU!

Stamps:  Funky Four, Apple Blossoms (level 2 hostess)
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron (colored part that ended up under the brad - oops!) and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers
Paper:  Poppy Parade (doesn't coordinate with the DSP, but I wanted it a tad lighter than Real Red so that the card would be "lighter" in general), So Saffron, Old Olive and Whisper White CS, Play Date DSP (Designer Series Paper)
Accessories:  Paper Piercing Tool, Template and Pad, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Glimmer Brad (Real Red - Holiday Mini Catalog item), Clear-Mount Blocks


  1. This is very fun! The PP was obviously a good choice. Blessings to you and your family as you deal with the changes ahead.

  2. What a fun card! Or course using the Playground DSP should be fun ;) The asymetrical cut on the "happy" piece was a great touch!

  3. Super cute! Love the glimmer brad in the middle. Hope everything is okay with you!

  4. Great card, very cute and cheery! Hugs :)

  5. I love what you did with the sketch. Such happy colors. I'll be thinking of you and wish you the best with whatever lies ahead for you and your family! Take care friend! ~Elisa

  6. Pretty card, Marie. Thinking of you and what is on the horizon for you and your family. Your extended 'family' of stampers is here for you.

  7. Such a bright, cheery card - love the glimmer brads! Sending hugs and thinking of you!!!

  8. Awwww--- how cute. I love that paper and your stamping accent is fabulous--love the white space.
