Slow down, you move too fast.....

Remember the song - Slow down, you move too fast, You've got to make the morning last? Well, that's how my life suddenly seems! I've heard older folks say that the older you get, the faster time goes, and I am beginning to believe them!

The card I chose to make this evening is for two challenges. Mojo Monday Week 92 had the sketch shown above. You can see how I attempted to follow their awesome sketch!

Melisa over at Paperlicious Designs, also had a sketch. For her sketch, I was to use Angel Co. stamps, and stamp repeatedly to create your card.

Supplies: TAC Beautiful Day, TAC Tag Tidbits, Palette Noir Ink, Black and White CS, TAC Gentle Beginnings DP, Fiskar's Scalloped Scissors, Ribbon (Hannah Stamps), Black and white brad (unknown).

Hope you like it, and that you are having a good week. We are well on our way to another weekend, and it is supposed to be about 100 degrees, and of course, the heat index will add to that! Maybe a good weekend for an indoors project???

Take care!

Beautiful work on this one, I love the small panels within the large rectangle of the sketch.

It's still raining and miserable here so no complaining about the heat!

Okay, now I can't believe how far behind I got in reading your blog! I have really been out of touch lately, more than I realized. I still have 192 more unread posts in my Google Reader. But I'm catching up with my favorites first. There's been a lot going on in your life, but you still have time to stamp and share, which is wonderful. Stamping (or crafting of any kind) is wonderfully therapeutic. And, of course, we out here in blog world are blessed by your creations and posts and thoughts for the day!
