Sketchy Thursday.....on Thursday!

It's crunch time. We're leaving for the beach house tomorrow I have a bunch to do so we can get out of town! And when I say I have a bunch to do, I mean stamping! I suppose there's also laundry, and packing and such, but our babysitter is coming this afternoon for a few hours so I can go out and get all my errands done without my 'helpers'.
Well, I decided that if I didn't make a card right might not happen before we leave, so here's what I came up with.

I've been wanting to try this color combo; Chocolate Chip, Bermuda Bay, & Crushed Curry, so I thought I'd give it a try for Tracy's sketch. And since I loved the line of buttons I used on this card, I thought I would try it again. What do ya think? Does it work?

So glad that Tracy is back...I totally missed her Sketchy Thursdays. And I am so happy that she has a new addition, Jinxy!

Two gals at card swap last night used the French Script background stamp, and I was totally inspired. And since mine hasn't seen ink in a LONG time, I thought I'd try it out! The little bird stamp, which I think I have fallen in love with is from a hostess set from the new catalog. Usually I don't end up using hostess sets or liking them all that much, but I love this little bird! The set is called 'Of the Earth'. The flower is from a new set as well, 'For all you do'.
