2S4Y Kazan's #58

happy saturday to you all! it's going to be a relaxing one for me... maybe visit a friend or two... we'll see :D definitely sleeping in!

i thought it was high time i jumped in a played with a 2sketches4you sketch! it's been a while, and Kazan had a great one posted this week:

usually i make cards for 'whatever' and end up not having enough of any kind that i 'need', but for THIS one, i had someone specific in mind...

my grandma, or 'Nana,' as i call her, hasn't had a handwritten note from me in forever, so i thought it was about time to send her something sweet.

i used a lot of goodies on this one, but when i showed it to Paulina (like a pre-screening of a movie... hehe!) she thought it was great and not too busy! (thanks for that bit of encouragement hon!) btw, we got to have a lovely evening together... saw a movie, grabbed dinner, and totally caught up on so many things (who knows, we may have even talked about you ;) hehe!) such a fun way to spend a friday night!

here's a close up of some of the goodies up top... Sassafras brad, yellow mini-clothespin, a white rosette, some flora and fauna stickers layered on graphic 45 paper and a Sassafras chippie frame, on top of a cream doily shabbied up with some yellow ink, and then of course the pink crinkle ribbon, Colorbok epoxy button w/ PTI button and the pink rhinestone. you can also see a bit of the yellow polka dots from PTI's Polka Dot Basics II poking up from the top and bottom of the distressed patterned paper.

for the sentiment i used PTI's Big and Bold Wishes, the flourish, and some little flower buds from Delightful Dahlia (colored in with some pink markers and a white gel pen... and some glitter from DeNami Design).

oh, and i couldn't resist decorating the back too... so more graphic 45 paper, a bit of a border punch, and brad/ button/ clothespin from the same as above.

so what do you think? i know Nana will love it (don't grandma's have a lovely habit of always loving anything handmade? :D) thanks for leaving your comments... they're always appreciated, and usually they totally make my day :D (and by usually i mean ALWAYS.)

go have some weekend fun! xoxo
