Kazan's Sketch #20: sweet life

Happy Wednesday! (I just typed Thursday and had to go back and delete it, that tells you where my mind is!) I took a *teeny* nap (2 hours) earlier so decided to try and stamp a little something before bed. I'm a little rusty, so I looked for inspiration!

I used Kazan's fabulous Sketch #20 from 2S4Y as well as Kristina's Color Inspiration #42 for this sweet life card. With the layout and colors already decided on, there was hardly anything for me to do! hee! hee! When I saw the "scrolly" thing on Kazan's sketch I immediately thought of this pear from the new On Board So Tweet chipboard for some reason, so I went with that.

I usually suck at keeping up at blog awards and tags, but I'm trying to be better, because I really do appreciate people thinking of me. So thank you to Juanita at Rubber Side Down, whose become a great blog friend, for thinking of me for the Best Blog Comments Award!

Okay, better get to bed. A cold front is coming and I'm scared it may be too cold for the kids to go to recess tomorrow morning. That does not bode well for the day! lol! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I've been following your blog for a couple months now and I thought it was time to pipe up and say I love your style! Your cards are always clean and simple but original. Thanks so much for sharing your work!

Kazan Clark said...

wow Angie this is a stunner! Your work is so gorgeous so the Award you received is totally expected! I had to laugh about your recess comment - I used to work for an Elementary school and snow school days were NOT fun for us. Hope today was a good one for you
