Hi friends!


Before I share my card, I just want to apologize for all the troubles some of you have experienced trying to visit me this week. I started having issues behind the scenes last week but wasn’t aware of front end trouble until a few nights ago.  My dear husband spent hours trying to figure it out, apparently whatever it was seems to have worked itself out thankfully. Please do let me know if you have any trouble getting my page to load or leaving a comment – thank you!


Since I couldn’t post last night, I kept myself busy in the craft room. I got two packages at work yesterday, one with Stampin’ Up! stamp sets from the new catalog and a huge box of paper/ribbon from a share I participated in. I love having a little bit of everything to check it out and see what I “need” more of.  I am very surprised at what I was drawn to use first! I was so excited to get the Flamingo Lingo set yet I was drawn to the Hi There stamp set, it was just the set to use with the sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday.  I also used the Flashback DSP on this card and that is one of the last papers I thought I would use LOL!


Card 6-June 2014 SU Hi There Flashback


Everything came together quickly to make this masculine card. Usually I struggle with them but this was easy and fun to make!


Here is the sketch I used~
