Sorry this is a quick post, but my world is quite crazy these days. I'll share more with you later.

Get Sketchy #79

Here's this week's Get Sketchy sketch:

Love it, right? My fave part is how the center rectangle bleeds off to one side. I'll be using this sketch again.

I made this card for a friend of mine who recently received devastating news regarding her mother's health. She has told me a couple of times that she thinks encouraging others is my spiritual gift, so I certainly hope this encourages her.

The Get Sketchy sponsor this week is Pink Persimmon!!! And we spoiled GT Girls received a few adorable stamps to play with. They stamp like a dream!!! And made in the USA, so you can't beat that. Play along with sketch #79 and you could win some fabulous Pink Persimmon stamps, too.

Brace Face Beauty

ScrapTiffany's challenge this week was to focus on one word: BEAUTY.

My oldest niece turned 13 a few months ago. I still can't believe it. And she recently got braces put on her teeth..... something she was not happy about. I know at her age, it's nearly impossible for her to really believe that her worth comes from God and not her physical beauty. Heck, it's hard for this 34-year-old to grasp some days, too. But, I'll keep reminding her (and myself) that she is "set apart." (Jeremiah 1:5)

I hope this card makes her smile bigger:

Get Sketchy #78

This week, the Get Sketchy girls were fortunate to play with some digi images from Pure Innocence using this sketch:

Great sketch, right? Wait until you see the Pure Innocence image I used:

Isn't he irresistible? He's got me thinking of my little guy who is just about ready.... only 13 weeks to go.

You could win some cute digi images, too, if you play along at Get Sketchy.

Lil Champ

SPORTS. Me? Not so much.
So when the ScrapTiffany challenge popped up with a sports theme, I was a bit clueless. My ideas kept going back to a trophy of some sort, so voila:

A trophy card! Probably the simplest card on the planet, but it makes me smile. I love all the messy glitter on it even though it ends up on my husband's uniform... oops. And it makes a great little boy's birthday card. (You know, I'm all about the boys these days. Just 3 months before my guy arrives.)

I found the trophy on the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge and welded two of them together on my Gypsy. I already forgot where I got the font from... sorry.

What about you? Are you Sporty? What kinds of sports projects can you create? Post them at ScrapTiffany.
