First Things First.........FMS97



This is the first time ever I have used Soft Sky on a card! Wow what have I been waiting for?  I love it with Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie!


There was another first around here this week as well.  My son taught me how to play Quick Draw one night when we went out to dinner at the Pub. Wow what have I been waiting for?  I won $135 - well for a short time anyway - because then I found out dinner was on me..................





Our Artisan Design Team Member Jen Timko designed a wonderfully versatile sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Soft Sky makes the pumpkin and curry even richer - thank you for the inspiration!

Linda love your card! The color combo is fab.... I'll have to use them together.
Congrats on learning Quick Draw and even better winning $$$$!!!!
Sorry you had to spend on dinner and but if you are like me you would have probably just spent on more INK! hugs.

Patti MacLeith said...

LOVE. Funny story, too!

Oh My Gosh I love this color combination. It looks perfect for fall. Your designs are always so clean and fantastic!

Ginger said...

Love your card Linda - especially the way you made "my friend" stand out. Great story too :)

I love these colors together! I tend to forget about Soft Sky since I use Pool Party and Coastal Cabana so much. But I love the way it looks with these rich colors. It looks like we both had hexagons on the brain for this challenge. I love how you've placed them. Great card!

Dawn Tidd said...

Love all the hexagons on the soft sky! This is a great card, as usual, Linda. I'm not familiar with Quick Draw either. Are you sure that wasn't the plan?

Linda Suarez said...

Wow! I love those colors together! And what a great mix of patterns too!

Wow...did not think Soft Sky could jump from a page so prominently! Lovely use of design and color- love the hexies going off the panel- my set will be delivered on Thursday- Yippee! You got me so excited!

Narelle Farrugia said...

Gorgeous! These colours work so well and I just love those hexagons - wish I could work out how to use them!

Jen Timko said...

This so awesome!! I want to run and make this right away (right after my Soft Sky paper comes!!)!! I may have found my new love after the loss of the beloved Baja. :-)

Fabulous colors and design, Linda! My Soft Sky is gathering dust, too. I love the way you omitted a hex shape and inserted the sentiment there. Very cool.
