Sketch Girl 19

Good Sunday morning to you.  Hope your having a fabulous long weekend.  It’s the 30th and that means it’s time for another fab sketch from Annie.


We are being sponsored this week by Sew Many Cards.  One lucky winner will receive 5 digi images from the store.  They were also kind enough to give the DT images to work with.  I’ve used Duncan the Duckling.


My CS is Cordinations and my DP is DCWV flower power stack.  I colored with my copic, and I didn’t even use a glitter gel pen.  I didn’t have ribbon the color I wanted so I colored my white vintage seam binding with my copic.  Make sure you stop by Sketch Girl and play along for your chance to win.  Also  make sure you visit the rest of the team:

Amber ~ Annie ~ Bonnie ~ Harriet ~ Julie ~ Jess ~ Tiffany ~ Alyssa ~ Randee ~ and our GDT Piali ~

Thanks for stopping by and have a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Oh My Goodness It’s a Layout or 2

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I have a layout to share with you.  Now, the last time I posted a layout, I told you how much I hated doing them.  But I saw this sketch by Sarabeth Burke, and thought I would give it a try.  My youngest daughter-Sabrina-and I go to our LSS once a month for a challenge group.  Since I hated doing LO’s so much, I gave myself a challenge-do to LO’s for this  challenge group.  So, here’s mine(be nice)!!



And here is Sabrina’s.  Part of the things they gave us to work with was these little 1 inch chipboard circles and squares.  I only used 2 circles.  Sabrina used all of hers and a couple of mine.  But the really cool thing she did was to make a birdhouse out of the square chipboards.  She cut one in half for the top of the birdhouse.  Now, I have to tell you that Sabrina loves to scrapbook, and has made several of them.  One for my niece’s baby, one for her Aunt, and one for Grandma as a christmas present.  So, here’s hers!



Isn’t it adorable!!!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Feature Friday by The Character Cafe’

Good evening, hope all is well with you.  It’s time for another Feature Friday from The Character Cafe’.  This week is my turn to do a challenge in blog land.  So, I decided to try a new one out-CAS-tastic.  I’ve never done a CAS card before so this was very new for me. 


I used the pondfrogs set from the new release by The Character Cafe’.  As you can see it’s very simple.  The challenge as CAS-tastic is to use circles.  I used a scallop circle punch and layered it twice with blue and then white.  I colored the little frogs and cute them out then popped them up.  I used white grossgrain ribbon from the Dollar store.  And that’s about it!!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.   Don’t forget to stop by and say HI to the rest of the DT.
