Do NOT laugh...

So... whoever is the first to laugh at this evening's post will absolutely, unequivocably, positively, be written out of my will!!! I'm just sayin'......

Today is Sunday, so of course, we have a sketch challenge at 365 Cards. Here is the sketch:



It looks totally harmless, doesn't it? Actually, very fun looking, right?


Well, my friends, it kicked my butt! I've been thinking about this card ALL DAY LONG wondering what to do!


I have SO much respect for all of the other participants - their cards are gorgeous! Mine is very nearly comical! I'm not complaining, just laughing at myself! However, I did complete week two, and I think I actually remembered to post every entry!!!


Without further ado, here is my quite silly card!




DP is Basic Grey Euphoria Collection, and Gina K. Design's free downloadable paper. Flowers are Petaloo Dazzlers. I used a border punch for the side and top, and the little square and half circle are popped up. Whew...is it Monday yet? Lol!!!


Lisa, I'm working on yours and Melisa's tomorrow! I promise! I have one wall to paint top half one color, bottom half another color, curtains to press and hang, and monthly reports to begin. Other than that, my day is free!!!


Hugs to all - if you get a chance drop in and say hello to Sarah - she is Pat's daughter, and is about 10 years old, and has started up the cutest blog!


Happy Sunday...

Girl you made that sketch look AWESOME. It was definitely different. I would have been lost!

Patti, I don't think this is silly! I love the colors and papers you used!
I would have been so intimidated by that sketch, probably wouldn't even have tried it! So kudos for you, my friend!
A lovely card and it will bless whoever you give it to!!
