Blue skies...smilin' at me...nothin' but blue skies


I'm late posting this morning. I want to to go back to bed. It's only Wednesday and already I'm clambering for the weekend!

The sketch this week at Sasyas Sketches is so different, I had a hard time with it, I'll admit! But once I fiddled with it enough I made it work for me and this beauty (if I do say so myself) was created.
Yes, that's another paper rose! I left it white this time and absolutely love it. Everything else is PTI except the orange snaps in the corner which are MM.



I hope you'll play along with us this week because I'd love to see what you come up with using this sketch! Can you believe this is sketch no. 23????

Hey Dana, I've been missing talking to you! Been keeping an eye on your blog of course but just not had a chance to comment. Thank you so much for stopping by mine after I've been AWOL for so long!

I've been loving all your creations of late, so many fabulous designs! Thought I'd pick this one to leave a comment though as they colours grabbed me straight off the page, love it! Beautiful flower too!

The colors on this one are amazing! Love it

Jill said...

I need a new word for "gorgeous." Exquisite, Dana! I cannot believe you made that rose. Not because you're not talented enough--OF COURSE YOU ARE, but because of its perfection! Wow. I also love the papers, stitching, the way you detailed the bottom, your color choices, the brads, and did I mention that rose?! You are amazing.
