Card and some Simple Love

****If you are looking for the SFTIO Blog Hop CLICK HERE!****

Good morning! 

Summer has finally arrived here and it's right on time according to pacific northwest climate. We always joke that summer actually begins after the 4th of July and every year that seems to be true. Loving the Vitamin D! 
I've got a couple of things to share with you. First up is that it's Card Sketch week over at Sketch Support and today I get to share my card using Allison's fab sketch. I loved the strips of paper immediately and went to down on my approach to this sketch.

Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper; Paper, Flower, Alphabet: American Crafts; Ribbon: Maya Road; Pen: Uniball Signo

Clean. Simple. With a little ruffle and some glitter. :) That ruffle ribbon is leftover from the Independence kit at SFTIO. I admit to wanting to hoard some of it. It's so pretty!

Head on over to Sketch Support to see the rest of the teams' take on the sketch. I feel so honored and privileged to work with amazing teammates!
In other news I have completed my first blog redesign! Yay!


Clicking on the banner will take you to Rachel's blog. I had so much fun creating for her because we've got similar styles. Thanks Rachel for being my "guinea pig" and being such a fabulous client!

For the rest of you - the Waiting List is open! If you'd like to get more information or request a free consultation just shoot an email off to me profoundbrunette [at] gmail [dot] com and we'll get the ball rolling.

And one last hurrah... I've released a "preview" of my first Digital Scrapbook Kit. It's called TEACHER SAID and is full of bold primary and secondary colors. Perfect for back to school, end of school or teacher inspired layouts; teacher gifts and so much more.  Maybe even adapt the papers to an emotion. Which one do you feel when looking at those colors? I feel empowered and the need to get organized! I also feel dread because it, indeed, reminds me of school and how much I hate homework. Ha!


The kit will go on sale at the end of the month after some of the sample product begins to get posted. AND I need to get my actual shop set up. So, for now, you can look at it. Would you like to win it? I'd love to give it away to someone. Just leave me a comment about your biggest school memory. It can be good, bad, exciting, embarrassing, frustrating, etc.  I'll draw a winner tonight and get this sent to you right away!

hugs,
Melissa

Ok, this is too late...but I gotta share! I remember getting in trouble for hitting a kid back when he started it! I had to sit and be last in the lunch line and he got to keep his place. Stupid boys! :)

Really sweet card, Melissa! I just love the kraft and love the strips of pretty papers. That ruffled ribbon is just my favorite. :)
Big congrats on your first digi kit. Wow, but you sure can do it all, my friend!
