sketch 8

I thought it would be fun to show a little versatility in this weeks sketch. Wow these weeks just fly.

So I decided to make 2 cards for it! Each style is totally different! One is a guy card, and the other is a GROOVY card.

NOTE: If you would like to view the thumbnail-click on it to enlarge.

To the Left, to the Right. Gotta love my long winded titles! I cant helpo myself. I want to give you a mega hint as to whats in my ramblings. SO……………..Thats what I like to call this one. WHY? Because we are TILTING the main image to the left-but placing it on the right. I think its cool. Its not often we TILT our images, so challenge yourself OK.

Mr Fix It

 mr fix it Here is Fixafella.

AmyR is the bestest! She sent me some Fella’s :D. Wasnt that sweet? Now I have 3 of them.

Anyway, I made this for my hubby to thank him for making me my stamp room! He deserved a SPECIAL card for all his hard work. So I did my best to make him look like Jason. He of course would never be caught dead in over-alls. He works in much more sexy attire-no shirt and dirty jeans.

So I stamped, colored, and sponged away. The bkgd on the Kraft cardstock is the ruler image wheel my SU! Not sure what its called anymore! First time using it! LOL! I also used it on the yellow to make a “measuring tape” type of image.

I got the screw brads at Oriental Trading year ago. I also used Power Up by SU! for the wrench, and the cord. The sentiment is from Just So Sayings (see my cut up set) which was my feeling about my room. I really thought that the twill tape was a perfect guy style “ribbon”.

I was quite pleased with this and it KILLED me to actually write in it! LOL!

Now onto one of my most favorite sets in the WORLD! Alexa’s Set. In case you have been living under a rock (wink) that is a set that was designed for my daughter by Missy B. All proceeds benefit Pediatric Leukemia and Lymphoma. It was designed based on Alexa’s most cherished toy Groovy Girls. Upon linking that I just realized I need to go shopping. We need more! Alexa only has over 50! And we have yet to get any of the new ones! GASP!

Anyway-so I used this sketch to make a GROOVY Girl card-

groovy girl

I started with the FUNKY cool paper by SEI called Hippie Chick-How PERFECT! So I basically just went with it. colored with my Copic markers, attached some ribbon, and of course a flower! Added the PERFECT sentiment by A Muse and DONE! I really love the Alexa groovy girl image cause you can seriously use her with any funk-tified color combo! I totally love this combo on this, and this layout ROCKS! LOL! Seriously try it.

Now, as always, f you try it out, sendme the link here. Im sure ALL the readers would love to see what YOU do!

Hope you LIKEY!

amber 3 This is Amber. I love this photo. It was taken the other day while she was “deep in thought”. What does a soon-to-be 3 year old think of? So serious.

I cannot believe she will be THREE. Time flies so quickly.

When I envision Angels this is the face I see. I really think she looks like one.

Blue eyes, long eyelashes, and curly blonde hair.   full 3

My BABY. Growing up. I know this is the face I will see even at 20. Where does the time go?

Just wanted to share these 2 photos. I LOVE them. I may even get inspired to make a altered frame for them.
