The Sweet Stop Sketch-SSS201 March 8th

Oh man- trying to take a picture of this card and working with the lighting!  I think this is the 8th photo I've taken of this card!  I am not sure if it is the color in the card, the lighting or possibly...hmmmm... camera user error (I am in NO way a photographer!) And I am sure when I upload this card to my blog it will totally clash seeing as the blog's colors are hot pink and black!

Nonetheless, this card is created for a friend of mine who just had a bit o' surgery and I thought I'd send her some cheer!  Love the poppies in this stamp by Technique Tuesday and the paper even has some poppies in it too!  

This card is being submitted to the Sweet Stop Sketch card challenge.
I took the layout and turned it- all the elements are still there!

Happy Anniversary!

Today is my husband's grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary!!  Wow!  Sixty years together- what a moment of pride- to know that you have built a beautiful life together and still more years to come- WONDERFUL! I made this card for their anniversary and hope they like it!

Image is by Lili of the Valley and the papers... Oh how I love coordinating papers!!! They are from the Stella Rose collection!! There is nothing like coloring an image with your Copic markers knowing that everything is going to coordinate! The flowers and time of year just shout "SPRING" (not to mention I saw a Robin this morning and feel like I could go outside with my shorts on! Ha! It is only about 48 degrees here today!)

I am entering this in the following card challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #206- To Die For- Used a circle die!
Mojo Monday 283 Contest
Papertake Weekly Challenge- Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday- Challenge 259- Spring Fever
