Get Sketchy #76

Here's another great Get Sketchy sketch this week for you to try out.

Endless possibilities, right? And I design you probably wouldn't naturally come up with on your own. That's what I love about sketches. They get me thinking outside of the center of the card.

I just saw that Sherri Thompson from Momenta found my card at the Get Sketchy blog and is featuring it on the Momenta Facebook page!!! Eeeek!! The bunny rub-ons are Momenta and they were so easy to apply. I barely started rubbing and they were on there. Love that!

What can you create with this sketch? Link up your work here to win a prize.

Get Sketchy #75

Loving this week's sketch at Get Sketchy! Pretty sure I'll be using it again, and without my own edits next time.

Here's what my head and hands came up with:

Lots of fussy-cutting on this one. I don't enjoy that process, but I LOVE the look which must be why I do it a lot. It's like getting patterned paper and embellishments in one sheet :)

You gotta hop over to the Get Sketchy blog to see what the other DT girls did. Wowza!! And play along while you're at it. 

This also fits the CR84FN color challenge.

A Fabulous Friday Find

It's my turn to share a Fabulous Friday Find over at ScrapTiffany.

I found this fabulous blog post that featured this talented lady, and I made this:

Get Sketchy #74

Just a real quick post from me today. I've got a killer headache and need to clean the house for the arrival of some last minute overnight guests.

Love this week's sketch at Get Sketchy:

I made this card for my youngest, curly-topped niece. (All 3 of my nieces have tight curls.) She turns 3 at the end of this month.

Yellow and Gray

I love gray! I've been wearing it a lot lately, and have been noticing it in the cutest little girl dresses, too. I was tempted to buy some adorable new yellow and gray dresses for this new baby I'm carrying, but we still have ALL my first daughter's clothes. PLUS, I went in for another sonogram and discovered that we are expecting a BOY!!! For five weeks, we thought it was a girl. We are still in a bit of shock, and it doesn't seem quite real yet; however, we are over-the-moon excited to meet our son. Eeeeeek!!! I'm having a son!!

So back to the yellow and gray..... that's the ScrapTiffany challenge!

I used a sketch in the Paper Crafts' Go-To Sketches special issue. (Can't wait for them to release a second one.) This paper is so beautiful to me; I wanted it to speak for itself, so no sentiment, unless you count the gromlet. (How many of YOU have your name on a gromlet? LOL)

I'm craving spring!!! This Florida girl has had enough of Virginia winters (it's only my second). Crafting with cheerful colors helps my winter blues, but wearing flip flops and capris would be even better :)

Pull out some yellow and gray supplies and see what you come up with. Email your project to ScrapTiffany.
