Mama Said There Would Be Days Like This....

How about weeks, LOL!! Last Friday I got to stamp a little for the first time in a couple weeks {definitely having the shakes, LOL!!} I have been missing my weekly sketch challenges. blog surfing/commenting, and I have missed a bit but, managed to get a card or two done. This card started out with Jen's SFYTT {yes, I am definitely down to the wire here} and had some Graphic 45 dp that I bought 'cause I liked the colors and they fit the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week for black/white with a splash of green... perfect!!
Recently bought some Unity stamps and haven't had a chance to play with all of them... absolutely loved this sentiment and image {definitely fits my time/place right now and yes, that could have been my "mama" when I was growing up!!}

Inside with sentiment

Jen's sketch... changed the outer rectangle to a wonky one and the circle too, took a little liberty  with the sketch.

PDCC colors

TFL!! {boggers still acting like a two-year old "in my humble opinion"-- actually I don't know but, it's a pita to try to post some days!

Stamps: Unity KOM March 2011
Paper: Graphic 45, black, white

Great combo challenge card. I can't believe I didn't get to the B & W and touch of green challenge! May have to do it late as I love the combo. Fun use of those wonky square in lieu of the circle too :) Wonderfully done.

Fabulous, Vickie...sounds like you've had it rough the past few weeks! Hope things slow down soon and return to normal for you...we don't want you to have the shakes!!!
Your card turned out lovely, great take on Jen's sketch and awesome splash of green! The image and sentiment are perfect, too!

Blogger is being a real PIA lately! I've tried to comment on so many blogs and it keeps asking me to sign in over and over...then still doesn't post my comment. Anyway...I love this group of cards...especially the black/white/green one! I see lots of new goodies on your creations...don't ya love those wonky rectangles?! :-)

LOVE your card! Those wonky nesties are just fab, aren't they, and I just love how you've done them with the button detail. Great detail, design, just love it! Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe!

What a fun card, with your "coulda been my mama" image on there! And that cluster of buttons is just perfect. THanks for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe!
