Two Sketches


I was lamenting to Robin Merriman this morning that there are so many sketches and challenges, and not enough time!  In between my cleaning today, I managed to make two cards using two challenges!  I already had the DP and the cards laying on my table, so I just went forward from there.  The first one is a new one for me, Unscripted Sketches.  Here’s the sketch:

US sketch 49

and here’s the card:


The inside says “Happy Birthday”; I was too lazy to retake the bad photo of it!  And here’s Mercy’s sketch for this week:

MTSC68 (1)

and the card:


I used a various assortment of stamp images, some Nesties, bling, punches and ribbon.  Hope you enjoy them! 

It is about 90 degrees here today---more like Florida in the spring than Pennsylvania!  I am not quite ready to bring out the shorts, but I am considering it!!  A side note, also; I have having issues opening anyone’s blog who uses Typepad (among a few others).  My techie guy is going to look into it over the weekend, but I was wondering if anyone else was having problems.  It is the same with DH’s computer, so I am thinking it is something on the server’s end.  Unfortunately, I am not computer-savvy!!!  So, forgive me for not commenting if I am a regular visitor, but I can’t get to your blog to comment! 

  • Stamps:  Waltzingmouse, Simon Says Stamp, There She Goes
  • Paper:  Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Hostess Prints Pack, misc DP
  • Ink:  Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose
  • Acc:  Nesties, retired SU Ribbon, Bling, Jumbo Bird Punch, Scallop Trim Punch, Dimensionals

Oh LeAnne how I've missed visiting you and seeing your gorgeous creations! I'm so glad you were able to join Unscripted Sketches this week, I love those papers and the scalloped edge you incorporated. Hope you'll play again soon...

I understand the feeling of so many challenges. Lately I've been getting just my dt work done and I've been a bad blogger. Hope to stop by more often. Hugs friend!
