TSG24: Sketch Challenge

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Good Morning!

Yesterday was definitely a strange day for me. I was home all day and managed to complete four cards (typically I finish just one), made an appointment for Syd to get her flu shot, cleaned the bathrooms, mopped the floors, vacuumed the carpets, dusted and went grocery shopping. It would have been an astounding day had I made dinner too, but I ended up picking up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store instead and called it a day! Phew! I'd love to have a few more days like that this year! hahaha

This week's There She Goes challenge (TSG26) is a sketch by the fabulous Jodi Collins!

Jodi, please forgive me!? I totally messed up her sketch! I had taken a peek at the layout and remembered all the details, but when I went to glue all the pieces together, instead of doing a mirror image, all the elements are all over the place! Doh! Sorry Jodi! Definitely check out TSG blog for the CORRECT layout and ignore my card! LOL

If you can look past my blunder, I used the recently back in stock Home Sweet Home stamp to create this manly man's card. To fit the image on a standard 4.25" x 5.5" card, I kept the accessories to a minimum and just added the wine bottle and glass on the mantle. Really should be a stubbie and glass if this card is for a guy though right?! :) The sentiment is also from the same set, which I love! I love sets that have sentiments included because then I don't have to dig through what little sentiments I have struggling to find something that fits!

Wow, you had one busy day! But sounds like you got a lot done which is great! :)

Your card looks so comfy and cozy! It's about that time of year to start hanging out by the fireplace. To bad where I live it doesn't get that cold. Have a great day! :)

Hey, don't worry, the sketch is made to 'adjust' here and there! It still looks perfect! I love how we all used the same set and all so different!
