Happy Friday to all my crafty friends! Today is so gorgeous outside I had a hard time bringing myself to come in and write this blog.  Sweater weather is my favorite weather for it is not too hot nor too cold and a nice cozy sweater is just perfect.  The sun is out and the sky is so blue and pretty today.

Today’s card is a New Year’s card for our son.  It is inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch MM221.

Here is my card….


…and here is the sketch

I thought this was a perfect LO for my Inspired by Stamping stamp set and MME papers.
