Let's Get Sketchy!

Hi friends!  As it's Wednesday, it is time for a new Repeat Impressions Sketch Challenge.  The sketch, shown below, is fun and easy to create with.   I chose to use "My Sunshine" (8402W) on my card. 
 
Supplies: Repeat Impressions 'My Sunshine' (8402 W), Echo Park Summer Days DP, Stampin Up: Corner Punch, Ribbon Scrap, Kaiser Craft Pearls, Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink, Perfect Layers Tools, Copic Markers


I have been waiting for just the right opportunity to use this stamp.  When I was growing up, my mom used to spend long periods of time brushing knots out of my 'oh-so-thick' hair, and would sing this song to me to keep my mind off of the tangles.  The Echo Park papers were a perfect companion for this happy stamp! Thanks, Wendy, for the memories.



Sketch to follow this week!!!

I hope to see all of you participate in the challenge at the Repeat Impressions blog, The House that Stamps Built.  We'd love to see your take on the sketch!  Repeat's stamps do not have to be used, so don't let that stop you!  If you have them, we'd love to see them, but they are not required.  Full challenge deets are on the blog - check it out, and get that card linked up - you could win some Repeat Impressions goodness!!!

Please be sure to visit my DT family to see what beautiful things they have to share with you today!

Kecia, our fellow member, could not participate this week due to family emergency.  She could certainly use some thoughts and prayers, today especially, if you'd like to pop by her blog and offer some. Her DH suffered a very serious heart attack, and must undergo surgery.  Thanks in advance for your kind words or unspoken thoughts.

Have a great day - mine is full again with a road trip, and a bit of grocery shopping, but I'll be dropping in on you tonight to see what's shakin' on your blogs!

Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.
