Crazy Card for TMS562

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Tuesday Morning Sketches is celebrating their 11th! (And they have prizes!!) They brought back their first sketch, and it is so out of my comfort zone, I just had to play along, LOL!  Here's the sketch:

I am just warning you...this is not my usual style!  I went through some of my older stash of DSP and found some fun papers that coordinated; my friend Teri gave me these, so I don't know the maker!  Anyway, I paired them with a new stamp I got from Sweet & Sassy to make this crazy card:

As I said, it's really out of my comfort zone-style, but I just went with it!  The set is called Vintage Love, and I thought a pink typewriter would be really vintage, and it matches the pink notepaper in the background!!  It was stamped in Night of Navy ink and colored with a Pink Pirouette Blend:

I love the little sentiment....this set is sold as a Bible journaling set, but I haven't gotten into that, but I can certainly use this to send some encouragement to a well-loved friend!

Thanks for popping in today!

Several years ago I purchased a wooden spooky house kit to paint, decorate and assemble.  I never did it!  So I thought Cassidy might enjoy painting and decorating it, and she jumped at the chance!  Of course, she painted it black (can you tell it might be close to her favorite color???); I did convince her to paint some of the other elements different colors!  It's a work in progress, so I'll keep you posted:

Pardon the mess on the table....when she's around, I can barely keep up with clean-up!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Well, I want a pink typewriter - too cute, LeAnne! It would be way out of my comfort zone, too, but you've shown how to stretch that zone a country mile!
[can't wait to see the finished house!]

I love this!! Certainly doesn't look like it was a struggle at all!
I don't Bible journal either, but I guess I need to look at those stamp sets because I just love this sentiment!!
Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
