Funky Sketchy

DSCF4982

I have decided that I cannot stamp when my husband is around, which is mostly on the weekends.  He never says anything, but I feel guilty, like I should be doing other things.  So this is a guiltily-stamped card so that I can fulfill my stamping fetish and now go and do something else like shred zucchini.

There is a new sketch site, Get Sketchy, and my blogging friend Ann is on their team, which makes me happy, and Ann's cards make me happy, but I noticed that most of the samples are a little more "funky" that what I normally make.  I guess it is because I am getting older and my style is more "fuddy" than  "funky" (can you tell I am in a slightly-not-so-good mood? sorry). So this card was a little stretch for me, although I love the bright colors and the sentiment from my friend Caryl, I just never quite know how to put everything together.  But together it is and hopefully someone will find it fun.  Here is the sketch:

GS 1

and here is my big sketchy card:

This is a square 5 1/2" card, Pretty in Pink; assorted BG and other scraps from my stash; Kiwi Kiss, some fun funky felt sticky flowers from Simon Says Stamp/Hero Arts, some SU Old Olive ribbon and some rickrack also from my stash.  Sentiment is Inkadinkado's Friendly Advice.  Thanks for visiting---off I go to the zucchini patch!

LeAnne, I think it looks fabulous! I had trouble with this sketch, too--that bendy piece just threw me for a loop.

This card is great! I think it looks funky...although I think my daughter just told me I'm getting to be a fuddy! If you need something to do with that zucchini, I just tried this recipe last weekend and the family LOVED it! They all thought it was an apple recipe! http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/Zucchini-Cobbler

ha! I know exactly what you mean about stamping when hubby is around!! I always like to get him settled in at the computer and then I figure I can putter in the stamp room to my heart's content!!

I love this card, what a cool sketch. I really like the ric rac on there, what a great addition.

Happy card.

I had to add that I understand about not wanting to do something when the DH is home.
I don't clean the house when DH is around. Either I feel like a maid or he decides to help and makes a fast clean up into a deep cleaning project.

Wendy said...

Oh WOW, I just loved this card, LeAnne! The layout is alittle wild but that's what challenges are all about! Nice job & I love that little saying! LOL

Bree said...

Hey girl.. so what are you making, my fave chocolate zucchini bread..yum yum?
Your card is fabulous.. and funky... you are definitely not a fuddy duddy, but a card making queen, this is just perfect.

I think you did a wonderful job! I love it! I know what you mean about feeling guilty! Every night I am in here on my computer/making cards and my husband is in the bonus room on his! Not so good for the marriage! At some point, I am going to have to stop!

Oh I love this!!! The fun style and colors and the papers are wonderful...so glad to see that you've challenged yourself here!! :) My hubby makes me feel the same way on weekends and I just have to tell him....HEY...it's stamp time!! :)

Dora said...

It's a great card, you used my FAV paper Daisy Bucket;)
Thanks for playing a long with Get Sketchy, and never doubt again over your style, your own style makes the card YOU!!

This is so far out of your zone it's amazing! You did a great job with this funky sketch - I'd have been completely baffled if I attempted that sketch! I love the happy feeling I get just looking at it! I love all the flowers!
Have fun with the zuchinni....I made a chocolate zuchinni cake last week and it went "poof" in a couple of days! :)

Jetstudio Designs said...

Cute card...I really like the colors and the patterns that you used!

Have fun with the zuchinni....that's all I've been doing lately along with tomotoes!!!

Caryl P said...

Oh I love it LeAnne! I can tell you are out of your comfort zone because it's not your normal style but it is definitely a great card. Love the ricrak!

I'm with you on the husband thing...I tend to rush through cards when I know he's upstairs waiting, and am sometimes smiling when he leaves for work so I can stamp guilt free!

AndreaWiebe said...

WOW!!!!! Your card is just fabulous!!! What an amazing idea :)

Juanita said...

Everytime you say a style is 'out of your comfort zone' you present a beautifuly crafted and amazingly coordinated A2 piece of art!

JeanFB said...

Love this card, LeAnne!! Definitely funky, absolutely no sign of fuddy! I had to chuckle when you mentioned your husband's presence making you feel guilty... I know EXACTLY what you mean. I doubt they feel guilty sitting in front of the TV watching sports, though LOL!

Tammy Hershberger said...

You are WAY to hard on yourself! This is adorable, LeAnne! I love the mix of designer papers you used, and all the embellishment!

I think it's totally funky! You did a great job on it...and again, that quote makes it!

I know about guilty card making...that's definitely why I don't post everyday! But I wish I was shredding zucchini, sigh. Can I come over for some? Yum!

Deb Neerman said...

Funky is good! And you do funky right!
