Sweet Sunday Sketch #191

Well, it's proving to be an incredibly busy and trying week!  What was I thinking having an art party at my house, signing up Audrie for a soccer tournament this weekend, Eric having his Fantasy Football party Saturday night, AND having Meet the Teacher tonight at both schools, then having Meet the Parents tonight by having Shelbie and her new boyfriend over for dinner, not to mention all the school shopping I still have to get done!  This is more stressful than the holidays!  Tuesday can't get here soon enough when the girls go back to school and I can relax and just breathe!

I was able to squeeze in a teeny tiny bit of stamping time two days ago and started making the elements for this card, using my favorite REVERSE CONFETTI stamps. 
When I saw Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch (#191), I thought, "well, that looks fairly quick and simple, I'll do that one."  Well, it wasn't playing nice with me, so I just finished it this morning, so I could see what ya'll thought about it before running out to the mall.  Gag. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the mall.  Just not in the mood today.

The main set I used is the I LIKE YOU (temporarily sold out, sorry!) and then the trendy arrows (chevrons?) are from the ARROWS 'N ELEMENTS set.  A very simple and quick card that I'll probably give to my friend for being awesome--there's some great stuff going on in her life (Hi Natalie!).

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I don't round corners often enough.  I think that's one of my favorite parts of this card.  Maybe I don't cut corners often enough either, given my crazy schedule.
