This is my first time for playing along with the As you See It challenge blog.
The challenge: Do you have a sentiment that speaks to you? This is your chance to highlight it in a project!
I am sure they mean --> do you have a sentiment in your stash that you LOVE to use on your projects but I selected a sentiment that follows me in my LIFE!! I was born and raised in upstate NY, lived in Las Vegas after high school then lived in Northern California for 16 years and then in Wisconsin for 19 years. Last year we moved to South Dakota. In each and every place I have lived I have left friends and family behind and "Wish they were HERE" This truly is my most often used and most heartfelt sentiment!
The colors I selected for my card were my answer to the ColorQ challenge that I am also joining - for the first time I believe. I loved this color combo!!!! and hope to use it more often on my springtime cards in the future!!
I started my card by embossing the United States die on to my green paper. I then cut the die from white card stock and carefully layered it over the embossed image. The rest is easy to see in my pictures : )
Edited to add: I was invited by Stephanie Lanzalotto to enter my card in the challenge at AAA Cards Challenge Blog. I was blessed and honored to join the fun. Be sure to blurf over and see this great new (well, new to me) blog.
Please stop by and leave some LOVE at these three challenge blogs and by all means join us in the challenge!!
I get to proudly wear this badge again today because of the NBUS Untied States Die I used for my card. : ) Thank you Darnell for your fUn cHaLlEnGe to use our Schtuff!
Finally I want to share a fun picture I took in Custer State Park (about 5 miles from my house). These little Prairie Dogs are nothing but pests to some people but I have to say I just love seeing their delightful antics. I will be sharing lots about Prairie Dogs in future blog posts and more about how I became nick named "Prairie Puppy Patti" by our visiting friends!!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day!! and having lots of time to play with paper!!
Thank you for stopping by : )
