Sketch Challenge

How is your week going along? Mine is going. Expecting to have a fun day with youngest dd who turns 37. I can't believe my baby is that age. I so clearly remember when I was. I'm amazed at how time flies. We'll have lunch out and shop a little. Then, she is going to do something different with my hair. I think I need a change, but don't know what. It could be as simple as coloring it. We'll see. But don't expect my profile pic to be updated. I had a heck of a time getting it there in the first place.
So, this card is for Just My Sketches  challenge here . It's unique in that we were to incorporate a song that we picked from among three the blogger gave us. I chose "Amazed" by Lonestar and the sentiment is the last line of the first stanza in the song.  I hope I have done the challenge justice. I don't often try them. I'm too old for all that pressure. So all you SU gals, remember this SU stamp from Seaside Sketches? How I love(d) that set. I had to "journal" the words at the bottom and my handwriting is horrid (age once again), but the "AMAZED," I was able to stamp with my JustRite stamp font letters. I would love to have more of these, but ya' can't have everything ya' wants, so I resisted getting more. The base is just WAMA's Pacific cs, the, who knows; and SU saffron. The ds is from a big box of K & Company. I distressed a bit, added 3 strips of thin navy blue ribbom and some of those raindrop embellies. Also, used my SU corner punch. The coloring is my attempt with Copics....HL has increased their price by $.50 each. I may be going on-line to increase my stock.
I hope you all have a great winding down sort of week.
Hugs & Blessings,
