SNEAK A PEEK! Its the Saturday Sketch!

Aug 24, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Saturday Sketch

Well, I got my High Hellos in from Lizzie Anne! Its a NEW Release that will be made available on September 10th! You can see those sets HERE.

While I was engrossed in inking my new sets, my kids decided to have some fun of their own.

Noah found a way to jam a toy into the fridge water dispenser-so that it would continuously keep pouring water out onto the floor. I guess that Spiderman car has more than one use afterall!

As it pooled on the floor, they stripped down to their undies, and began their version of a slip-n-slide across the kitchen floor.

I heard lots of giggling (from my stamp room downstairs)and knew something wasnt right! If they are HAPPY theres a PROBLEM.

I ran upstairs to see a HUGE puddle in the kitchen (along with my entire floor soaking wet) and Alexa was in the process of sliding across the floor on her butt as I emerged.

Lets say I was NOT happy. The look on their faces was priceless. I didnt even utter a word before they began scattering to grab paper towels to clean it up. 3 SOAKING wet kids in their underwear, sliding around frantically for something to whip up the mess. It looked like they hoped I had still not noticed.

They sat in time out for ONE hour-without a peep! That showed me they knew what they did was WAY wrong!

What a way to put a road block on the MOJO!

Back to my Lizzie Anne sets……………I had to share that.

I am in LOVE with them all. I began working with High Hello’s and seriously could NOT stop! I made alot of samples but for now will only share this one. Keep checking back to see more this week.

I decided for my Saturday Sketch that this would be perfect!

I hope you like it. I was very happy with how it turned out. Especially since the colors are so not my usual combo.

I LOVE layering-but keeping the layers nice and clean-not too overdone. You can really KILL a card by over doing it. Its good to know when to S-T-O-P!

sketch 11 This is a perfect one for the taller images you may not know what to do with.

Topiary Thoughts

topiary thoughts I really loved this one. It was the first card done from my set. I made it yesterday morning.

I used this awesome Strano ribbon in 5/8 Petal. It gave me this combo of Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Not Quite Navy, Celery and Artichoke! Who would have thought? Not me.

I need more of their ribbon-seriously gorgeous. I love how I tied the bow. I didnt have enough ribbon left to make a knot so thats how I improvised. Just used my linen thread.

The tree was colored with my Copic Markers, and then some Sakura glitter pens. I added green stickles to the outter lines of the topiary. The key was not to fuss with how it was colored. I just swirled my markers in various greens around in circles like the image-DONE.

I love the sentiments in that set cause they are so interchangable with all the images-too fun! Im on a huge Prima kick. I cant NOT use them these days-that and rhinestone stickers! YIKES! I hope I get out of that rut. All this PRIMA purging is so hard.

Well I hope you like the sketch and have time to try it out! Put a link here so we can all see it OK!

Enjoy the weekend, and if you have a funny kid story I’d love to hear it. Maybe it will make me feel better 😀

They are only little for so long I guess.

I’m Green!

green panels

Well today Im sharing a super fast card.

I decided on this one today because Green Grass Stamps has a New Release set that is on SALE!!! So check it out! PLUS its a great fast and simple layout for you to try.

I am also stamping like a MAD woman and dont have time to go into alot of the blah, blah, blah today!

I got some yet to be released images that I need to get inking on! Just wait till you see these new sets!

I am working on Green Grass, and New Releases from MFT stamps, Lizzie Anne Designs, and awaiting images from C.C. Designs. Among the other things I haven’t even listed.

Lets not forget tomorrow is Sketch day!

Throw in my article for the Craft Critique and there ya have my day.

While its crazy, its hard to call this “work”. I love every minute of it 😀

This card uses the the love image from the set True Love by Green Grass. I love this paper and strategically cut it so that the circle was the floral center. I love doing little panels. Tied off with a Martha Stewart ribbon, and DONE! Supah easy!

Paper is a stack by K & co.

Thanks for looking.
