Encouragement, French Style

Well, my stepson is officially on the road heading down to California.  It seems like forever since he'd been making plans and all of a sudden the big day was here.  Sigh.  We'll miss you, A!

I thought of him as I was making this card but it's just a tiny bit girlie, don't you think?   ;-) So into my stash it goes.  Some quick coloring, masking, and embossing is all it took for this card. 

Although I'm feeling a bit blue and may not do much crafting this week, I will at least be sorting through and organizing the rather massive haul of goodies I made away with at Amy's garage sale.  I'm almost glad I couldn't make it on Friday, the first day of the sale.  Break the bank!  LOL

The Details:  Penny Black A Little Bird..., PTI Signature Greetings II, Inkadinkado background stamp, Simon Says stitched rectangle die, Wink of Stella (the bicycle), Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine Onyx Black, Recollections 110lb white cardstock, Neenah 80lb solar white cardstock, Ranger clear embossing powder, Copic YG13, YG17, YR0000, Y21, Y35, YR24, E19, N0, N3, Y00, Y11, Y15, E0000, E00, E30, E31, E33, B00, B02, B05

I'm entering this in Crafter's Cafe #116 Feminine, Addicted to Stamps and More #144 CAS, CAS on Sunday #58 Cheer Up, Buttercup, CAS(E) This Sketch! #123   


  1. Sounds like you did very well at the garage sale. I'm glad I live on the other side of the world, I would have been very broke indeed!!! Wonder what Amy will do with all her loot, probably buy more stamps! I just love your card, its such a gorgeous, happy image. I can't imagine you will have it stashed away for long, I'm sure you will find someone to surprise this with, the lucky thing!!

  2. And as usual I completely forgot to thank you for sharing your card with us at ATSM. My forgetfulness is quite scary sometimes.....

  3. I love everything about this fabulous card, including how you rotated the sketch!

  4. Oh, this is absolutely darling, Toni! Perfectly colored and lovely CAS design! So glad you shared this with us at ATSM this week!

  5. Such a fun and sweet card! Thanks for joining us at CAS on Sunday!


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
