The sun has finally come out.

I am so very happy! The sun has finally peeped out from behind the clouds here in NE Georgia. It's even warmed up a bit, enough to open the windows. I just love being able to open up the front door and windows. I'm very much a nature kinda gal. I was also able to dig out some of my Stampin' Up! DSP from days gone by. I used a very cheerful sheet from Gingham Garden DSP. Such a pretty collection of pattern papers. I added some newly unpacked vellum to the top with SU ribbon. Actually all items used on this card are from Stampin' Up! this time. Well, except the stamps - my bad. The stamps are from Inky Antics. I am a turtle collector, so this stamp set simply HAD to come home with me back a few years ago. This card was created using this sketch for Viva la Verve Sketched Week 1.

Ya' know sumpin' I think that Mojo Monday and Verve sketches are just beautiful! They really make me smile and they are easy to create from. Soooo, thank you to those wonderful ladies that come up with them. Amazingly talented to have so very many different sketches.  Okay, enough of me going on. Here's my card based on this sketch.

I'm not sure if my eyes are not being nice to me lately, but most of my pics seem to be just a tad bit outta focus. I'm still using my IPhone to take pics. I simply can't decide on a camera to purchase. Do I want a DSLR or a point and shoot? I dunno. So, I just keep using mu phone. It doesn't take the best pictures, I apologize guys. I promise to make a decision with in the next week.

I'm gonna go and start dinner cooking. Hubby has asked me to make loaded baked tater soup. So, I'm off to make it happen. If I get it going now I can reduce it down for a more robust flav-ahhhh. TFSB
