Card Patterns #127

Happy Saturday sweet friends!!!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!!!  I had a great morning at the Farmer's Market and I'm not quite sure what this evening holds, but I am going to enjoy it no matter what we do!!  It's good to stop and take a time out from the craziness of the week!  I do have to be honest, I am so sad it's already the 6th of August!  School will be starting before we know it!  I did take time to clean my laundry room, pantry and oven this week! It feels so good to get some of those chores accomplished!!  I still have more to do before we have one last visit with our kids, but what gets done, gets done.  I can't fret over such things!  The house will always need to be cleaned, but taking time out for family is what matters!  I am also happy to say that my boy moved back home!!  I am very thankful to spend more time with him before he is deployed to Afghanistan next year.  I will take all the time with him that I can get!!!  So, I am a happy mom, a very happy mom!! I am so very thankful for the little blessings in my life!!

I am also thankful for this hobby that I love so much!!!  I am loving being a part of Card Patterns and I am excited to share this week's sketch with you!!!

Here's the sketch:

and here's my take on the sketch:

I used some leftovers from my Little Red Scrapbook August kit for this card!! The colors are so bright and cheery, they make me want to smile!!!  This week's sponsor for Card Patterns is Tiffany Doodles.
I chose to work with this digi stamp:
I thought these stamps would work perfectly with the Echo Park Papers!!!  If you look close enough, you can see that I sprayed a little Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on them after I colored them with my Copic Markers.  A little sparkle makes all the difference!!!
