It's a Jazzy Life

A Pie Update: Sorry to everyone who thinks they're headed to NH for raspberry the time I had the picture on the blog is was GONE! We ate half and my FIL took the other half home since it was his birthday pie after all. :-)

I need to thank both Terri and Steph for today's card. Earlier this week I recieved the most wonderful (surprise) package from Terri, with a nice little assortment of all the new SU In Colors and ribbon as well!!! I was shocked, happy(jumping up and down happy) and feel very blessed by Terri--if you haven't been over to see her blog, be sure to go on over. As you may know, It's a Good Life!!!

The reason I thank fellow Unscripted designer Steph for this card because she's a Jazzy Cat over at Jazzy Inspirations, and is offering up some blog candy too. Their challenge was to use Turquois or Teal, along with Black and White. I used Black, Bermuda Bay, and Very Vanilla--because it matched the scrap I had left over from a wedding invite! This is also for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge which is back! I only had a chance or two to play along before she stopped it so I'm thrilled that she's back sharing her sketches on her blog with this challenge.

So thanks Terri and Steph for being great blog friends and continuing to inspire me!

Paper: Very Vanilla, Black, Bermuda Bay, scrap from invite
Ink: Black Stazon
Stamps (SU): On Your Birthday (sentiment), Yummy (flourish)
Other: Bermuda Bay polka dot grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
