Thinking of You :: 2S4Y



WOOOO WEEEEH! It's almost the weekend!! I will be so excited when it finally arrives. Today, I am sharing a card inspired by a 2 Sketches for You layout. I'm not a big fan on how it turned out, but I finished it fairly quickly and that's probably why! See, what happened was, I was planning to post something else to realize I was a day early, so I had to make something...FAST! A sketch was definitely needed for this last minute card and this is how it turned out. I used a combination of lots of things here, so bare with me!

Thanks for visiting and have a great Friday Eve!

  4. Punch circle, stamp sentiment, and adhere.
