SSSC128/Tuesday Trigger: Squares to Cherish

Hi there!  This last week was super busy, but then again this whole month has seem to fly by, can you believe tomorrow is August first already?  I can't! 

Today is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #128.  I used Karen's fabulous sketch along with the Tuesday Trigger: Squares to Cherish Challenge (inspiration photo below) to create my card.  Seeing the inspiration photo for the Tuesday Trigger Challenge brought a flood of ideas to my mind and also made me think of the crochet blankets I've received from two very special women.  The first person was my grandmother who was always busy crocheting or doing crafts and the second my mother-in-law who gave me the most beautiful crochet blanket as a wedding shower gift.  These blankets truly are Squares to Cherish.  Every time I use one of these precious blankets I think of all the time and love that went into making them, the remarkable women that created them and how much I miss both my grandma and mother-in-law and wish they were here with us.
Supplies: Think Big Favorites #3, Bitty Background Blocks, Button Boutique die, Flower die, White felt, Button, Ribbon, Nestie Scallop Square, Sending You die (for leaves), Foam Tape.  Colors: Basic Black, Marina Mist, Mellow Moss, Certainly Celery, White.
To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!

As I'm finishing this post I just realized after looking at the sketch again that my panel is tilted the wrong way...darn those tilted panels! Lol
