Sketches {by Tamara} Card Sketch #33

It's Thursday, so that means there is a new sketch at Tamara's site. This is my card for Sketches! {by Tamara} Card Sketch #33. If you make a card using this sketch, stop back by and let me know. I would love to take a look at it!

I used a DCWV Glitter Mat Stack for the card front. I matted it and ticket punched it. I added Making Memories flower brads to the ticket punched corners. The "friends" and "forever" are ScrapWorks fabric tabs, and I attached them to American Craft ribbon. The Prima flower stack has a vintage button in the center. Thanks for the cool button Jana!

Busy day today. I'm going to see Jessica in a matinee performance of the 5th grade Talent Show. She is an actor in the show. This matinee is for the rest of the school to see the Talent Show, but I have to crash this performance. The talent show is at 7 p.m. this evening, but I cannot go to it, because it's also the exact same time as Emily's induction into the National Junior Honor Society. Both schools are in the same school district, and I have no idea why they would schedule singular events at the very same time. I shouldn't have to choose WHICH event I want to attend. I should be able to attend both! Thank goodness for the matinee today, because it made my frustration a little easier to deal with!

Thanks for stopping by!
