Thanks.../FMS#99/Simon Says Monochromatic/JUGS#202

Good Morning all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. It was another gorgeous day, so we took our fur baby on a 5 mile hike around the reservoir yesterday. There's a bunch of trails and we enjoy hiking there. Colby was one tired but happy doggy by the time we got back home. (So was I! LOL!) I'm sooo out of shape! ☺

Later on, I went up to my craft cave to make another card. This one is based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketch #99Simon Says Stamp - Monochromatic, and Just Us Girls #202:

the inside:

I followed the sketch pretty closely, just tipped it on it's side:

Love it when multiple challenge blogs have the same type of challenge going on at the same time. ☺ I used different shades of blue paper, be it card stock or patterned. I stamped the light blue paper using the largest paislies, then second generation stamped some of the smaller images around them. For the inside sentiment, I did a little masking. I masked out the 'happy' from the happy everything stamp, and also 'a gift' and 'you' from the A gift for you stamp. Easy peasy!

Well, that's it for now. I hope that you find time today to get crafty! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Sentiment masking is so TRICKY but addictive once you get started....washi tape is the best for that. I always end up with messy fingers :) Love the variety of blues!
