2S4U - Sketch 44

Good morning...
I have made a pact with myself about a couple of things... one is to get fitter... luckily I am not going to the gym today... which has left me time to myself to craft... and the other is to use all the stuff I keep buying for my crafting. This means I need to use the stamps that are starting to pile up... this is a lovely stamp, I have had it for a while, I don't know where it came from or who designed it, but it is lovely. The papers I have used are Basic Grey's Mellow collection. The punch is a Martha Stewart one. The ribbon is actually yellow but looks gold on the photo for some reason. This is my take on 2S4U's Sketch 44... what a lovely sketch. As soon as I saw it last night, I knew it would inspire me this morning.

I am going to make an 18th birthday card next. My cousins daughter is 18 on monday... it's one of those iconic moments that you think to yourself 'how did the time go by so fast?' and 'OMG! I'm getting old!!!' In actual fact, there was another one last week when a friend of mine who hasn't had her 40th birthday yet and she became a grandma... Wonderful news, gorgeous baby, but makes me shift in my seat at how the time goes by!!!!
On that note, as I sit here chatting I am not getting my cards made, am I? I was going to set my goal at a Christmas card a week, but I haven't got around to starting that one yet!!!
Hope you all have a lovely day... despite the weather!
