Card Patterns 99

So I got up this morning to serious quiet! I couldn't pass it up! Straight to my scrapbook room I went! The kids didn't sleep well last night and sadly, my DH is not feeling well either! So I knew we weren't going to church! I jumped on my google reader....found a sketch...and made this card....

Oh...have to take the quiet time while you can get it. I got up early...did some work for my job, took some pics of cards I made yesterday, blogged one of them and went back to bed for a couple hours! Your card is adorable...love the sketch and the cherry paper - perfect with the sentiment! Hope your hubby feels better and that it doesn't move on to anyone else!

Kathy said...

Oh the lovely quiet! When my kids were still little I craved that quiet time and barely breathed so as not to disturb anyone!! Now they are grown and gone and the quiet is available all day every day...sometimes I wish it were full of children's laughter again. But you seized the moment and made a most fabulous card! Love the sentiment. I'd love it if you'd post all your ingredients:)

Wendy said...

What a fun sketch, I'll try to fit that one in this week. Look at you go with the patterned paper, I think you're hooked! Love the contrasting patterns with the pop of red, so fun.

Sue Ann said...

TOO CUTE ..... I love that gingham ..... YUMMY!! Can you tell me what it is like to have quiet ?? That is the only reason I go to the gym ~~ Have a great day LB!!

Laurie said...

Kathy...I know I am so bad about supply lists but I did post one this time! It is below my name and in small print at the bottom! HTH!

Sue Ann...quiet time only happens during nap time and bedtime! That is MY time! LOL!

Sue from Oregon said...

Lovely...and I spotted the cherry DP right away!

Ann said...

What a sweet creation! I adore cherries & gingham..especially together!

Hope your clan isn't too sick. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts!

Aimes said...

Another beauty to put in my inspiration file for my mammoth task of USING my DP instead of hoarding it!
Hope the kidlets and DH feel better soon!

Amy said...

I can't wait to use this sketch...you did a great job with it! I like that sentiment!

Debby said...

Love the ribbon, sentiment, patterned paper .... gorgeous. After my big tidy up I realise I have enough paper to last me several lifetimes! So will definately try a version of this beauty.

Brandi said...

This cherry paper is so cute. I just love mornings in my craft room when all is still and quiet. So peaceful!

Dana said...

Quiet time? What's that? LOL
Lucky girl!
I love the sweet country charm this one has. I have a small obsession with cherry themed PP, and have scads of it hoarded away. This card proves that I can haul it out and not be afraid! Perfect.

Kathy Martin said...

Simply fabulous!
