Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #37

Can you believe that I almost forgot about this completely. I am sure you are like me and at times seem to have your hands in just about everything and wonder how the heck you are gonna keep it straight. You do have those moments, don't you?? I was so busy working on stuff for the Chili Cook-Off/Dessert Bake-Off that I run at my church to further benefit the CROP hunger walk and thinking about needing to do a newsletter for my customers and for my cub scouts. And of course trying to get some DT stuff done for the new release at Storage Units Ink and More (SUInk) and working on some challenges on SCS, and and and --- believe me the list goes on and on. I am not complaining you see, just trying to remember, lol. So anyway, enough of that gunk, lets get to the sketch challenge. That is why I am posting after all! Here is this week's sketch.....




And of course my card. I had a horrific time trying to get a really clear picture. Should have done it earlier in the day -- but of course the card was not done then so this is what you get, sorry. It may seem a bit clearer if you click on it to enlarge it.


Here is the details:

Stamps: Nursery Necessities
Paper: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Basic Black and Muirfield DP
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze and Basic Black
Other: mini black brads, velvet star brads (MM), large oval punch, black marker, white gel pen, tag corner punch, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug

I would so enjoy if you would play along this week! If you do please post a comment here with a link so I can share it with everyone else. And if you post on SCS (which I always forget to do) please use the key word TSSC37! I am off to bed! See ya with more stuff in the morning, I had a busy day in my studio today!

Here is my card. I think I am going to rip it apart and cut it down to 4.5X4.5 I think the 5.5X5.5 is just too much blue around the center image. We shall see. I like it.
