A fun sketch challenge--

But if was a challenge, lol!  Funny because when Mary played with my sketch challenge for this week she said she struggled with it, well, I can say the same right back at you Mary!  I had a bit of an issue with this one but I was determine to try it.  My first card--I thought I had a great idea, but the finished product-not so great!  But I am sharing it with you anyway.  I think I got a bit carried away with the gel pen.....





So since I was not so happy with that one, I had to try again.  Hence my second card with this sketch.

..
I am still not sure I really like either of them but it was a fun sketch and I had fun playing!  Nice to have a bit of stampin time!

If you have questions please ask in the comments section but be sure to leave your e-mail since I can not reply to comments on blogger.  Sorry no details, no catalog near me and I can remember the names of the new papers and sets yet!

Have a great Friday!
Mary Jo

I really like them both! It's good to get carried away sometimes and make a card you really wouldn't make a million of. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
