Sending You Smiles Card

Today I combined two challenges:  Mojo Monday Sketch challenge and Splitcoast Stampers color challenge: Pacific Razzleberry Olives.  I was glad to have them both that way I didn't have too many choices.  My oldest left this morning for college.  For various circumstances I was unable to take her, but thankfully she has a friend traveling with her, her roommate and best friend in fact.  I had been doing really well but today I am missing her so much.  I guess the reality kindof hit me like a ton of bricks.  However, we already have a trip planned at the end of September when school here is out for fall break.  My husband's family is in Salt Lake City close to where she will be.  I am sure I will be fine until then.

On a more positive note!!!  I can't believe I already reached 100 blog followers!!  I will be getting the blog candy I promised ready and pictured in the next day or two!!  Thanks so much for all the support!!  Never in my wildest dream when I started a blog did I imagine how much fun it would be and how many friends I would make. 

On with the today's creation!  Here is what I came up with, combining the challenges!  I hope you like it!

  1. I really like that card. I just got an electric big shot and some embossing folders and now I need to figure out what to do with them. This card gives me a good idea. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I attempted to try both these challenges together today but gave up. That color combo was a toughy for me. Yours is fab though. I like your choice of embossing with the stamped image.

  3. I like your card! There are so many layers and elements to it, yet the simple layout keeps it from going over-the-top. Looks great!

  4. The brads are the perfect touch!

  5. Gorgeous color combination and I love the layout. Beautiful! TFS Congrats on your 100 followers.
