Happy 2016!

Did you notice the little snow globe? I received that from my husband for Christmas.
It's the beginning of a New Year!

Boy did last year go by at the speed of light or what.

Ok confession time. I had this entry all written out but do you think I can find it. I am doing this from memory so please forgive my randomness.

I have a new project I've been working on to share with you. Do you seem to look at a stamp set and only see one way of using it? Or maybe you are like me and scan Pinterest, see the most beautiful card and copy it exactly (which is great that we can do that). Then go to try something different with it only to think it's not as good as someone else's creation. Well I am challenging myself to use Pinterest or other sites as inspiration but to make the cards I find and like, my own.

Here is my card for today. (If I had remembered where my notes were I would have given credit to the wonderful person who inspired me. If at a later date I do find my note I will edit this post.)

Did you notice the little snow globe? I received that from my husband for Christmas.
 This is a very simple sketch card that can be duplicated quickly if you need allot of cards. Maybe thank you cards? 

The stamp set is from the new Sale-A-Bration free products catalog. This catalog is good from January 5-March 31, 2016. It is called What I Love. I'll link the other products at the end of the post.
 I colored the flower stamp with my blender pen and Calypso Coral stamp pad. I just kept the stamp pad closed and squeezed the lid enough to get a pool of ink and colored from there.
 Here is a look at the inside of the card.
The "you" came from another free set in the catalog called Botanicals for You. I know this look really pink but it truly is Calypso Coral.
In order to receive one of these sets you need place a purchase for $50 before shipping and taxes. For me that is a really easy thing to do.

Here are a few details of making this card. If you have any questions just let me know.
