A Quick Post

This card is for the MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge#55 which is to create a card with monochromatic blues, and I also used the sketch for the Stars & Stamps sketch challenge#69. I always struggle to create monochromatic cards. but whenever I use Soft Sky it all seems to come together effortlessly. If there are any details you need to know about what I used to make this card or the one below, shoot me an email and I'll fill you in.

PLEASE - if you email me to ask a question, leave a way to contact you to answer you! If your email is not associated with your blog, there's no way I can respond to a "no reply" when I click on your name!!

edit: the embossing folder used on this card is from the Provo Craft Cuttlebug set called "with love borders embossing folders set of 5." {#37-1171}

This card is for the Sweet Stop Sketch SSS108. I used a SNSS forget-me-not digi for this one, coloring with Copics and layering with scraps of DP from my bin.
I apologize for not giving specific details about these cards but I have a very good excuse. We were expecting out-of-town guests to arrive late tomorrow night and stay with us for a few days. Imagine my shock when they arrived unannounced at 9:30 this morning while I was sitting here in my pj's and robe!!!! They've gone to visit other friends for a couple hours this afternoon, so I thought I'd quick get these cards finished & posted while I have a few minutes.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Sunday!
