SG9 -I totally modified the sketch...


Aye yi yi! I have been so busy. Life certainly throws things at you. Of course, you just take it as it comes right? I look at all the cards that so many of my favorite bloggers have created in the last month with a twinge of envy. Gone are the days that I spend every night in my craft room....

Today was a very fun crafty day. My friend Lori is the director of a humane society (she's also the head vet) and she called on me to summon my crafty friends to create as many cards as we could to sell at their fund raiser coming up in December. We manged to create about 100 cards! Now, many are the same, which she will package, but it is still quite a feat. I made the card above in the spirit of sketch number 9. I couldn't get the double strips to work (which is too bad because they are totally me, and on any other card I would have thrown some ribbon on, but it didn't work with this card). The little felt trees are from the dollar bin at Michael's.

Here is another card we created. I think we made 25 of these. The glittered tree is from a HUGE pack of 1000 that I got on clearance last year. It was like $2.

I love this card. It speaks to the simplicity that I am trying to approach life these days. Plus I got to color. Lori reminded me today about how we used to color in Grad school when we would be stressed out. Color as in with crayons and using a Lion King coloring book. That was fun. But so are Copics :) I may make these for my Christmas cards this year. But I think I will add a tree branch for the ornament to hang on.
Anyway, totally sorry about the bad blogging. I will try to be better!
Now go to the Sketch Girls website and see what everyone else came up with!
TTFN!

CAS - I like it and it works! It took me awhile to figure out how to incorporate those stripes!
The world ornament is so cute too and looks good w/ or w/o a branch.

Love those cards. They are fabulous. Wish I could have been there on Saturday, but non-craft stuff has been getting the better of me. My fav is the world ornament. Very clean and simple and still colored with copics!
