A Little Note!

Okay, who made September mad? It arrived steaming hot with it's sun a blazin'!! Dang it's hot here in Ohio!  Sweet P and I have had to put our walks on hold. I get a little crafting in here and there while she naps. Today I have a card for the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I also brought CASology's new cue word into the design. 



First I added an alphabet embossed panel to my card base. Next I stamped this little stubby pencil from Stamps by Judith and the sentiment by Endless Creations. I die cut this along with some patterned paper using a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die. They're added to the card with foam tape. Three little gems and it's all done!

Have a great day and thanks for visiting! ~Lisa

You are so creative, Lisa--another fabulously designed card! I love that sketch--now more than ever! We suddenly lost Summer, but I've had enough sun to last me a year! Hope you get cooler temps soon. Hugs, Greta

Hello Lisa: WOW!! what a fabulous and beautiful way to combine the two challenges!!! Love, love that little pencil nub, reminds me of one of my granddaughters, she tends to hold on to her pencils until there is only the rubber left, LOL!!
Love the strip of DSP on the top and that alphabet embossing is fantastic.
