Good Fortune......FMS332

I had the good fortune to attend Stampin' Up!'s OnStage this past Saturday in Hartford, CT!  I got a sneak peek at the new Stampin' Up! catalog and saw many new products including restyled inkpads and wonderful  new colors.  But the best part of these gatherings is chatting with so many wonderful - and amazingly talented - demos.  I will share some of the great swaps I received with you later this week!

Emma and her mom came to Hartford with me too.  They explored the city for the day and found a wonderful children's museum and toy store.  When they returned at five to pick me up they were just in time for Emma to help with an after event swap!

I hope my friend Karren doesn't mind that I sort of went outside the lines with my take out container today........that's what happens when you look at a sketch and think "oh I will remember that"......and then you don't quite remember it exactly!  Enjoy her wonderful sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week - and do remember sometimes it is fun to go outside the lines!

Stamp Set: Fortunate to Know You
Ink: Black, Copics
Paper: Whisper White, Emerald Envy, Pick A Pattern DSP


  1. Awesome card! Love the colors and I think that your take on the sketch is perfect...I sometimes remember things a little differently for the sketches too. Good thing that we can call it "artistic liberty". ;) Sweet picture of your two at the event, bet you had a great time!

  2. What a fun card with sweet sentiment. Love the picture. Can't wait for all the new products and colors. Enjoy your day!

  3. Cute! Cute! Cute! I love these adorable images and how you've arranged them on this fun card.

  4. Linda, this is just delicious! I love every Asian dish to come out of a Take Out box, and every card you take out of your imagination - I totally see this Sketch!
    Can't wait to see the new ink containers...

  5. Your "outside the lines" is what I call a great and creative take on the sketch. And now I'm hungry!

  7. This is such a great card Linda! I love that take out container and fortune cookies! So fun!!! Emma is so sweet! I bet she had a blast hanging out with Gramma!

  8. You're totally forgiven for going "outside the lines" because I did the same thing - couldn't even remember my own sketch! Adorable card and such a sweet photo of you and Emma.

  9. Linda I think using the take out box with the fortune cookie is a really fun take on the sketch and I love that you went outside the lines. Sounds like you had a great time in Connecticut last weekend!

  10. This is such fun! So glad you had a great time at OS and I love the swaps you shared (comment multitasking....). Love this take on the sketch.
