You're more like your parents....

Well, today is a very rainy day out here on the east coast. I'm not complaining - we needed the rain. We just didn't get the thunder storms that they were predicting...sigh. (I love thunder storms)

Anyway, here is a card I made for the Freshly Made sketch challenge #31.

Here is the sketch:

This is a fun sketch, and very versatile. I actually made two cards last night using this sketch, but the other card will have be for another post. This card will be sent to my other sister for her birthday.

Here's my supplies:
card stock: The Paper Co.
PP: Echo Park - Times & Seasons
Stamps: Inkadinkado
Ink: Tsukineko; Clear Snap
Ribbon: May Arts (LOVE this color ribbon! It's so silky!)
Markers: Marvy Uchida
Accessories: Grand Calibur and dies by Spellbinders; corner rounder; rhinestones by Colorbok
Adhesive: S.A. by 3L; Tombow; Glue Dots

One of my goals is to some day take a copics class and learn how to color better. But that's an investment I'm just not ready to commit to yet! It's on the bucket list.

I'm still trying to get used to this new Blogger change. Not sure I'm liking it. But to quote one of my favorites:    
"If nothing changed, there would be no butterflies".

Thanks for stopping by. Have a happy Sunday!
