Unscripted's 50th sketch


Wow, Unscripted is on their 50th sketch, can you believe it? It's a great one for either a card or a layout, and I wanted to do a page but just couldn't find the right elements to work for it. So a card it is....
One thing that has been keeping me from getting crafty lately is this BEAUTIFUL weather! It was ridiculously hot a few days this week (think summer), but now it's chilly and normal again. But the crabapples out side my window have tiny leaves and I can't wait for the blossoms to come. We planted them late last spring so I haven't been able to see them in full bloom yet, I can't wait! And that's what inspired me when I made this card. The sentiment was RAK, I think from LeAnne and I've looked at it all year trying to figure out where I could use it. I guess I'll need to make a few cards with it now that I'm in the right time frame!

Hope you find time to play along this week, head on over to Unscripted Sketches for more inspiration...the DT really hit this one out of the park! I'm trying to get out of my crafting funk, any tips or tricks to get me creating on a more regular basis? I've been MIA because I thought taking a break would help. But it's too hard to get back into the swing of things now. Thanks for any help or advice you've got, I miss the old blog!!


Smiles,

  5. What a fantastic sentiment in combination with your blooming tree. We had some nice weather for a few days then it turned cold and windy again. Hopefully today will be nicer. I want to get out in the garden and plant all the flowers I just bought.

  8. Caryl, This is the prettiest card. I love the blooms. Trees are just budding here. Only like 36 days of teaching left for me. Happy and sad at the same time.
    I love the colors you used on this card.
