It's a Super Sketchy Sunday...

Literally! It's Sunday over at 365 Cards, so that means it is sketch day! We were to use the following sketch for our cards:


I have this amazing pad of Basic Grey June Bug papers (thanks Lisa!) that I can't seem to keep my hands off of! It is going to be gone before I know it! (sad face here) However, I love all things BG, so I couldn't resist using it, along with a wonderful Unity stamp, and this fun sketch!


I followed this sketch exactly, which is not my norm (as you know I usually flip or rotate), and even included the cute little triangular pieces at the top! I punched a circle from the DP, and popped it up for a 3-D effect. Ink is Colorbox Olive Green Chalk Ink, and distressing was done with Palette "Haystack". The darling little yellow flat pearls are Kaiser's.

The colors don't photograph as well as I'd like, but overall, this is one that when finished, I was quite pleased with. It will make someone a nice card!




Well, peeps, I must go get ready for a trip to the airport to pick up DH. He's flying in from LA today, we drive to Branson, Mo. AND back tomorrow (4.5 hours each direction) to check on a jobsite, and then he flies out to Phoenix on Tuesday a.m. for some safety meetings. He's had a wonderful visit with DS, and they have been to several Cardinal's (sorry Caryl) games together. It will be good to see him!


I hope your Sunday is blessing filled, and will probably be MIA until Tuesday night! Take care all!!!
Patti J.
Life is good!

All I can say is YUMMO! You've done that paper proud, dear girl. I love it!

Glad DH made it home safely. Sounds like he's on the road a lot right now. Apparently, that means more time for stamping for you!
