Stampin Queens Scketch Challenge # 26

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Before I start to talk about today's sketch challenge. I just want to give everyone a Big Heartfelt Thank You..... Your warm and sincere wishes, your kind thoughts and prayers and your words of encouragement concerning my brother Vince is over whelming. I let my SIL know my on-line friends are thinking and praying for them.

I just found out he went into the hospital two days ago because of dehydration and they found a bit of pneumonia in one lung. But the good news is that the Radiation he has gone under has indeed shrunk the tumor in his throat and he is able to ingest fluids and "Ice Cream". He is on antibiotics and will be home in a day or so. Two steps forward one set back, at least he is able to eat that is great news! So a Warm Thank you to you all from me.

Now on with the sketch.

Sketch Queens Sketch Challenges are always a challenge and this weeks is no exception. I have enclosed a link to their blog if you too would like to give it a try and add your card to the players list.

Here is their sketch for this week;
Isn't it a great sketch!
This is what I came up with;
I chose bold colors of card stock for this card Real Red, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla. I used the Eiffel Tower from the Artistic Etchings stamp set and embossed it in Gold.The accent piece was made from Daffodil Delight Polka Dot Ribbon and an Antique Brad. The sentiment is from the Because I Care stamp set and the tab was made with the Designer Label Punch. Unfortunately, the DSP is retired it was one of my favorites too. It was called Love Letters.
Here is a look at the inside.
That's all there is to it. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We just hung around the house and watched movies and played in the craft room. I made Baked Zeti and a salad for dinner yum, yum. Guess whats for lunch tomorrow lolol.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you too can make time to create something fun!

Lovin' it. It is so special. I love how you do the inside of the card. I am still thinking of Vince and your family. I HATE the new way we have to prove we are not a robot. I usually have to do it two or three times till I get it right. PLEASE turn the darn thing off.
