Hello! Thanks for stopping by today! I know I haven't been posting as often lately. Sorry for this. I am just not feeling that creative and feeling kind of burnt on on blogging. Hopefully my stampin' and bloggin' mojo will come back soon. :) I did muster up this card...it did take me 2 nights to make. My typical is one card a night. But I spent alot of time watching TV in between. I have to admit that I am a reality show junkie! It's one of those guilty pleasures! I also like all those crime dramas like CSI (the original only), Criminal Minds, or NCIS. I am looking forward to the new NCIS coming this fall. I usually don't like the spin offs...but It stars LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell. OK...those 2 are totally hunks from my younger years! LOL!!!
I also love House. Although I still have the last 2 episodes from last season still unwatched on my DVR. I better watch them as the new season starts soon. For comedies I like The Bing Bang Theory (TOO FUNNY), How I Met Your Mother, and The New Adventures of Old Christine. That last show reminds me of the Cathy comic strip in that I can always relate! LOL! I use to not be that interested in TV then a couple of years ago our TV broke. When we went out to buy a new one we had little choice but to get an HD flat screen. Well, the pictures on these (non-tube) TV's had me mesmerized! LOL!

Anyhooooooooooo, back to the card!!! (I always tell you that I get side-tracked easily!) As I try to every week, I used this week's Friday Sketchers sketch. All the stamps are available at Magnolia-licious...I linked each one direct in the recipe at the top.

Gorgeous Kerry! I love the bright, cheery jungle colors--makes me smile! Gorgeous flowers too! I like TV too but find that since I've been busy with craftin' (I never craft at nite, only do computer work) I dont' pay attention to it as much! But I'm really enjoying that new show "Drop Dead Diva"--hilarious!! And I won't watch CSI until they bring Grisham back, LOL!

hugz,
Suzanne

What an absolutely beautiful card, Kerry! I think I told you before that I have just in the last week or so come out of an about month long stamping/blogging slump. It is so frustrating to not feel like doing something that I usually love. Just know that we all love you and your artwork and wait with baited breath for your every post! HUGS!
