Nice to Meet You....

Good morning, and Happy Sunday.  Our weekend was nice and quiet - got to visit with my friend Shirley at her a*muse open house on Saturday, and we had a very nice Palm Sunday service in church today.  The weather has been gorgeous. DD made it to DC, ran and finished the Cherry Blossom half-marathon, and made great time. Nick's sis and her hubby, and Nick's parents and DD all met there, and they all ran the race.  Ha ha...you won't ever hear 'all ran the race' when talking about her trips home!  I'm proud of them all!!!

Today's card features my first ever Little Darlings stamp, "Nice to Meet You".  Is he not the sweetest guy ever?  I see a few more Little Darlings in my future :)  Don't faint, but peeps, this is a CAS card!  Yup.  CAS!

Stamp: Little Darlings, DP: Echo Park, a*muse, CS:XPressIt Blending, Copics B93, B95, B97, YG61, E25, E35, E31, E00, E01, YG23, YG63, Black Fine Point Sharpie Pen for doodles, GKD Pure Luxury CS for card base, EK Success Zig Zag Punch, Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon

I'm going to enter this card in the Sketch Challenge at Outlawz (also a first for me!) - here's their sketch:

As you know, I rarely use a sketch without flipping it.....call me a rebel!  lol...


I'm also entering here:

Thanks for stopping by - I'll be back on Tuesday with my Itty Bitty Candy Winner!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Food for thought:  I've never been hurt by anything I didn't say.
