Stampin Up, Pals Paper Arts challenge # 298, Smile

Wow, where did April go?  It seems like it just started and it's almost over, that is what happens to the wonderful not too hot and not too cold months here in AZ.

Todays challenge for PPA is a sketch challenge. I like for my cards to me meaningful to me. So, while it takes me a lot of time sometimes, I just have to find a way that works the sketch so that it makes sense to me.  The sentiment is from Suite sayings, and I really love this set, so many really good sentiments. This one is good for so many things, from a card for a loved one to maybe a card for a friend you care deeply about who might be going through a tough time.

That is what this one is for, I have a friend who lives a bit too far to see her very often and she has been going through a very tough time for over 2 yrs. I know that everytime I send a card it perks up her day and I can just picture her smile as she opens it.   She is a stamper who hasn't done much in those too years because of what is going on, so she does love the hand made cards.

My colors today are Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Crumb Cake.
Retiring products as of May 31st are, Love Blossoms DSP stack, It's my party enamal dots, and the 1/4" cotton ribbon, all of the colors are retiring, and the Floral Frames dies.  If there is anything here that you really want, I urge you to place an order really soon, most stuff is likely to be gone very quickly.

Our sketch today at PPA, is by Ginger Toivonen and here is what it looks like:
