Ain't no sunshine when you're gone

Good Morning! Hopefully you are all able to spend some time with your family today. We are lucky to not only be able to spend time with my family, but also time together at church. Does life get any better than that?

Now onto my card. I was able to combine a few challenges. Have you been over the the JUGS challenge blog? It is a lot of fun and they change it up every week. This week it is a color combo. I used the sketch challenge from Unscrpited Sketches. I haven't played along with them for a while, but I really liked their sketch this week. Here is the sketch

My card
Well what do you think? I really like the pop of red. It just seemed to brighten the card. Not that this will be any surprise to any of you, but I LOVE Papertrey Ink's buttons. It is such a fun mix of sizes, shapes and in the case of this aqua mist one bling. Isn't that fun? Oh, if you haven't tried the new ink pads from PTI you really need to. It is fabulous and I can't wait untill they change them all!!!


Have a blessed day.


It's a good life!
Terri E.

Glad you found us, Terri! Love your card and that punch of red! PTI definitely has some great products, and the buttons are one of my favs! You are the second person I've heard say the PTI is changing their stamps. Can you let me know what they are changing them to? I've tried to search their blog, but I couldn't find anything. I'm interested in hearing this! Thanks! Hope to see you at our JUGs challenge again!
