Quick Unscripted Post, card from friend

the day started out well, beginning with coffee and muffins with a dear friend, then a trip to Hobby Lobby with my daughters, where I found the craft cards my
sister Samantha has been looking forward to receiving (no HL in her neck of the woods!). But when I came home to work on the Unscripted Sketches, I discovered my laptop isn't working. My favorite geek (AKA Kyle) was home to help troubleshoot but even he is having a difficult time figuring out what is wrong. So I'm "borrowing" my daughter's laptop for this post and praying I'll have my own working again soon.
I know that I've mentioned a few times how much I love the
Unscripted Sketches challenges - one of the many reasons is that it doesn't stifle your creativity. You can use their sketch but then add your own interpretation. Check them out! Here's my take on this week's sketch:
I used all Close To My Heart products for this, including the new Twitterpated paper. I wasn't so keen on it when I first saw this paper, but after using it, I love it!

I used scraps to make a second card since I was loving the paper so much...

And finally, I was blessed by this really pretty card today...made by my precious friend Donna Petrie Isn't it adorable? She's so creative and she's the one who really got me started with the paper crafts. Maybe she'll have a blog of her own sometime soon...she's got a great sense of humor too and I know others would love her craft work as well as her life insights.
Hugs,
Marie with a :-)
