I'm Back

Happy Hellos!

Happy Hump Day EVERYONE! It's so nice to be blogging again. I feel as though there is so much to catch up on. Although, I am back, I'm not quiet 100%. If you've never had pneumonia, it takes a minute to recover. I returned to work yesterday and boy was it a long day. I was glad to be back; however, by the afternoon I was beginning to tire. Well, enough of that. I will continue to get better.

I haven't participated in a challenge in a while and I wanted to do so. This week I decided to participate in the challenge over at Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge--one of my favorites. Of course I could have done more with this sketch. I know. It's very basic. 'Simplicity' is truly the word of the day and perhaps tomorrow too, but this was all I had in me. 

Here is the sketch ...



...and just below is my card....



To achieve this effect, I used a WMS stamp, an Impression Obsession sentiment stamp, PTI cardstock, In Bloom DP from Reminisce, Softees Collection Bonnet by Prima Flowers, CuttleBug embossing plate, and some beautiful ribbon.

Well, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

So fun, love how you moved the sketch to the bottom! The flower is gorgeous and brings out the sweet detail in your patterned paper!

Lorie I love the way you put so much thought in your creations. You always wow me. It's always exciting to log on your site to see what's going on with the Peddler's Gallery. Can't wait to see what's coming next.

This card is beautiful. I like the colors used in creating it. So sorry to hear that you were so very ill. Yes, I have had pneumonia - try four months to get well! Take care of yourself.
