"orange" you sweet...

Couldn't resist that title, lol! (I know cheesy!).

I hope your day is off to a great start. Well yesterday I had several things on my to-do list that I just could not seem to complete...so frustrating! I love (LOVE) to cross things off my list, and when I can't well...I get frustrated! Today is a new day! Guess it is a good lesson in patience (arghhh!).

I saw a card similar to this on Splitcoast Stampers a while back, and thought it was so cute...so I cased it and put my twist on it. I don't think you can see from the picture...but I added Crystal Effects to the orange segments to give it some dimension.

I am so behind on my final *sad face* Lesson 6 (learning composition this week). Hopefully I will have some time when I get home from work today to practice. I have learned so much about my camera, and don't fear moving the dial to M (manual) any more. If you want to know how to sign up for September's class the info is here.

Enjoy today and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used (all SU! unless noted): Tart n' Tangy/So Very stamp sets; Whisper White/Pumpkin Pie cardstock; Pumpkin Pie/Basic Black ink; Orange stripped ribbon; Circle punches
