Friday Sketches Alota Angel

I love the sketch on Fridays Sketch today. It is so do-able (I think I am creating a new word but I like it). I love the way it came together. I used My Mind`s Eye paper from the Bohemian group. Such lovely paper. It is reversible but I didn`t use the other side just the two coordinated papers.
I stamped the image, Fall Angel from Alota, on Watercolor paper and embossed it with clear detail embossing powder. I used my Twinkling H2Os again. I love the way you can blend the colors. The flowers are from Prima and I used brads from MM. The twig punch is actually the oak leaf punch from Martha Stewart. I looked forever for the twig punch but I think this punch works cute well. The brad in the corner is from Scrapbook Basics. I won it in a blog candy and have been hoarding it forever.

I used the curved rectangle die from Nestibility. On the front I used the middle two sizes and on the inside I used two larger sizes. I seem to use some sort of nestibility on every card. I love how they work and the cuttlebug is simple wonderful. It is so lightweight and easy to use. I have mine sitting on the floor by my feet and I just lift it up whenever I need it. Greatest little tool out there.
Today is my hubby`s birthday so I guess I had better get the house "a itty bit" clean. I am definitely not the tidiest person where as my DH is soooooo very tidy. When we first were going out (25 years ago) I used to intentionally mess things up just to see him go straighten things back. I would mess the folds on the curtains and he would walk in and without even saying anything he would fix the folds on the curtains. I thought this was so funny. He didn`t even know he was doing this. Well I am proud to say that after 24 years of marriage, he no longer picks up and tidies all the time...its hard with teenagers. We joke about it all the time so it has become a tradition that at least on his birthday I will tidy up. Soooooo, off I go to Tidy.
