2 Sketches 4 You -Cherish the Moments and Enjoy

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Hope your week was wonderful! Things here have calmed down a bit - I finally have a laptop - after almost a week of it crashing and losing everything - my finger is 90% back to normal after being burned and we are amazed at how quickly the summer is flying by! 
I can't even begin to express my thanks to the dynamic duo awesomeness of Laura and Kazan (thank you girls!) for their lovely words of encouragement from last week's festivities! I am still stunned!
My heart is filled with gratitude to the 2S4U community! All week, I was looking for pockets to do the 2S4U sketch challenge and I am so happy that finally this morning I could sit at my craft table again (that's right - I am no longer crafting on my closet floor since all our guests are gone! lol!) What a great feeling to sit down at a table and not hunch over on the floor! 

I loved Kazan's Sketch #30 and this is my "Cherish the Moments & Enjoy" card - which is what the mood was here today as I am so amazed that we are almost in the middle of July! I love the summer with its lazy haziness, the swimming pool lessons, the drippy popsicles on sticky fingers, the watermelon wedges that drip juice down your chin... and just the warmth and heat that sinks into the earth and concrete... sigh.... so my goal is remember to savor it first and foremost :)

Here is close up part of the first half of the card: "Cherish the Moments &...."

and... ENJOY! I added little bling in the corners and in a swirl and little photo corners and the whole thing was sponged a little.

Card Details:
Paper: K & Company
Ink: Martha Brown
Accessories: bling from stash, Martha glitter on some white liquid pearls and also some platinum stickles and 1 3/4" circle punch to round things out, ribbon - organdedy sheer from Taylored Expressions, liquid pearls magenta

I had a lot of fun with this sketch! I wish I could have this much fun folding the laundry or doing dishes ... buttttt - that never happens  :)

Thanks so much for visiting my little corner in blogland!
Hugs and sunshiney smiles :)
Sankari :)
