SSSC#192 - Sunflower Thank You's

Well hello there!  How can it possibly be the first of September?  Where did summer go?  It's been a while since I last posted, week's actually.  I'm sorry to have just dropped off without a word.  Do you ever feel like you need to take some time and step back from something even if it's something you enjoy doing?  Well between my kids being home for the summer, work and daily home life, something had to give.  Thank you to those who stuck with me during my absence.
Are you ready for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge?  Karen's whipped up another fun sketch for us to create with and we hope you'll play along!
This sketch worked out perfect since I needed two thank you card's and wanted them both similar in style.  All I did was flip the sketch!
 I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Simple Sunflower, Turning a New Leaf, Rosie Posie (for the stamped hexagons), Think Big Favorites #4 (for the Thank You) and Mini Blooms (for the Thanks so Much).  I also created a long stemmed paper sunflower to give with each thank you card which I die cut using my Silhouette SD machine and a few scallop circles and glitter for the centers.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Stampers have created:
That's it from me today, I'll be back again on Wednesday with a new card for the Color Throwdown.  It's hard to believe my kids start school this Tuesday.

Sooo glad you're back Lynn. Have missed you. I totally understand the need for a time out though. It's good to recharge your batteries. You're mojo is seriously on fire with this beauty. It's just amazing. I love sunflowers and just like your card it makes me happy!

First of all, Lynn, you have been missed! That being said, however, I agree with you that sometimes you need to take a step back. Being a mom there are so many things that compete for your time and I completely understand the need for a break. I hope it was a restful break.

Secondly, this card is stunning!!!!!! OMGosh, I love, love, LOVE it!!!! It is perfect and I know I will be CASing it soon! What a perfect fall card!

Oh, and I see you got sucked into the Silhouette :) I hope you are enjoying it!
