Yeah it's Thursday!

The week has gone by fast for me. I am not sure when I lost track of time, but thinking it must of started on Tuesday when I became engrossed in a book. This happens to me when I find a great book to read. The book I read was a guide to help parents connect with children that have Aspberger's. It was incredibly insightful and I appreciated the references. I decided to instill a new regime in my reading habits. I am trying to balance out the fiction and non fiction reads by alternating between the two. I love going to the library and finding new books. I feel like a kid in a candy store when I walk out with my stack of books!I get so excited while the clerk is checking me out. It feels like I just got the best deal of my life. It's free after all! Does it get any better than this?
Today is Thursday which means I am going to the library so I want to share a coupled of cards I made quickly.

I used some older papers mixed with a few new in an effort to use what I have. I wanted to make some bright and cheery cards for spring and Pink Pasilee's papers were a perfect choice for this.

The second challenge at Use It was chosen by Danni this week. Her example is gorgeous!

Here is Danni's challenge:

•use spring colors on your card

•use 4 flowers (I hand cut the flower stem out with the flowers and then cut two additional flowers to give dimension to)

•use a tag ( I cut a label from the journal sheet)







Supplies: Pink Paislee Spring Fling, Office Lingo, and Sweet Cakes papers,Stickles,Cosmo cricket rub-on, Ranger Distress Old Photo ink, foam mounting tape

My last card for today is for Kazan's sketch on 2S4Y.

I rotated her sketch 90 degrees to the left.


Supplies: Pink Paislee Sweet Cakes papers and aplha stickers, Martha Stewart yellow ribbon, Kaiser Craft green rhinestones, DMC floss, and orange button from supply

Thank you for visiting! Now it's off to the library for me.

Well Amy I think you did a fantastic job with the sketch :) but I do have a little confession to make - I struggled with my own sketch too. I battled with it for an entire afternoon - it looked simple enough to do when I drew it out - sorry but if it helps I feel your pain *wink*
