That was a long time!


Well, my brother caught his flight back to Korea yesterday. We had such a great time over the past 2 weeks. I'm always really sad when he leaves. We've lived apart for basically 16 years, so maybe I should be used to it. But I'm not. He's a great friend, and knowing how long it will be before I see him again leaves me just a little blue. So yesterday I took the day to be bummed and catch up on some much needed rest. Today I knew I needed to stamp or I might never get back in the swing of things. I used the CAS sketch challenge on Split Coast Stampers today. This fun card here is the sketch. I used some Basic Grey paper that I just love; if I was a person who could sew, I would find fabric to mimic this paper and make a cool blanket with it! Well, I am off to try and catch up on visiting blogs. Enjoy your Monday!

Great job on this sketch. I like your combo of the patterned paper and butterfly image.

It's nice that you have such a great relationship with your brother - even if you don't see him often.
