200th Post!?!?!?

Wow, to think I have created at least 200 cards since August! Yikes - at least that might mean that I have been using what I have. May was a heavy shopping month for me though, and I'm afraid of what the credit card will bring. It all started with the May Flowers Pack from Verve Visual. Then I needed some adhesives. Then there was a great clearance at the craft store. Then I needed a sympthay set...

On to today's card. The sketch is from Di Hickman's May 28th challenge. I instantly wanted to make a card with this cute dollar set I picked up last week. I had the Sunshines paper from Cindy and I got to work. I used the Nestabilities scalloped and regular squares for the images, then laced them with hemp twine through eyelets. The center large sentiment is made from stickers. These K & Company Hopscotch alpha stickers have been in my drawer almost a year, and I haven't had the chance to use them. Di's sketch was perfect, although I could have lined up the word better so that the "s" wasn't hanging off the edge...
DS is on his way to bed, so I'm hoping to get more stamping done tonight. This is a full week of work, and I'm sure it will feel like a long one. Hope you all had a good weekend. Thanks for looking!
