Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #18

I woke up feeling really crummy this morning, the temperatures have dropped and it has been raining on and off for days. I so hate this type of weather, especially when I am so ready for the summer. So since it is Monday and I had to get my butt out of bed and do my Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge card I thought I would make myself a get well card, lol! Here is todays sketch........

In case you can't read the writing, it says that the white part is actually the inside of the card showing from the front. I really like this layout and have used it in the past. I am not super happy with either of my cards today but considering how I feel I thought I better just get them posted!

The first card is using my new Bella Stamp Feel Better Bella. She is really cute, for a sick person, lol! I used the Bali Breeze dp for my colors. The main card is Pumpkin Pie followed by Taken With Teal then the dp. I am using my fusion flowers for the first time. I lost them on my work space for a while! Glad to have them back they are so bright and cheery.

This card is using two Stampin Up! sets. To Have and To Hold and Together Forever. The base of the card is Chocolate Chip followed by dp from the Afternoon Tea collection and the inside is Cameo Coral. There is also a small circle of Wild Wasabi. I added a Prima to the top of the knot on the Chocolate Chip satin ribbon.

And then this is the card I made quite a while ago. It is what I used for the sketch so I thought I would re-post it here again.

Now for the other player's for this week. Please join us and play along. If you put a comment on this post I will be sure to share your sample with everyone during the week. If you post on SCS please use TSSC18 in the key word section.

What a fun layout and the girls did a fabulous job with it, don't you think? Now we would love to see what you do with the sketch. Have fun. I am off to get a tiny nap after taking some meds!
