SG4- Gray is the new Black

Did you ever have one of those months? One where everything seems to happen at once? That is the month I am having. I can't really talk about work (Scientist at big Pharma company), but let's just say I have been hopping this past month. Add to that the fact I had scheduled vacation for a week and it amounts to a busy busy August with not much time for crafting (ie having a job and doing it well helps when one wants to go and buy new crafting supplies - namely the new Copic colors)....but I digress.

This card was very easy to do once I found the papers. The sketch was somewhat of a challenge, but I love the patterned paper lines that coordinate now. Once I found the Ambrosia stack from Basic Grey and I remembered the coordinating rubons I had tucked away for a rainy day (which is what we had all week here in Chicago) I was set.

Now its your turn! Let's see what you can do! Don't forget to link to go to the Sketch Girl Blog and link to your project...YOU might be the guest designer for the month!

Sketch Girl 3 Sketch

Woohoo! Time for another Sketch from the Sketch Girls! I am scheduling this post so I am really hoping that it posts in time. I promise to be a better blogger when I get back! :)
This sketch was very simple, so feel free to mix it up a bit. I love using the stickers from K and Company. The Amy Butler line is awesome! I am in love with scallops, and I love the fact I can use my Silhouette to cut them any size I want! This one is a 4" square.

August Card Exchange

Time for another card exchange. The theme this month is Birthday cards. I seriously thought about sitting this one out. I have like a million things to do (going on vacation again next week, plus work stuff)...but I figured if I could think of something acceptable in 10 minutes then I would participate. Sooo I came up with this. Everyone loves a scalloped card right? I cut some square on my Silhouette (love that thing!) found a sheet of patterned paper and viola! I still have to make the other 9 and get my hubby to drop them off (did I mention we work at the same company, and that he is very tolerant of playing delivery boy?

Hope you like it!

Sweet Sunday #29

Ok, so I saw Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and decided I just had to play. Loved it. Then I started making this card and I did all sorts of crazy rule bending things. That's what I like about sketches though....
I turned the sketch on the side and used an oval panel rather than a square one. I also moved the sentiment lower on the card. I am really pleased how this card came together. Can't wait to see what everyone else does!
