A Sketch from Jack

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Happy Tuesday to you all!

It's Twinkling time again and this week's sketch is brought to us by Jack, Madelynn's little brother! Good on ya Jack! His sketch is a very forgiving one and I whipped this baby up in no time flat (2 hours for me is no time flat).

I love this Granny Hanny set from Hanna Stamps! It's right up my alley for making humorous cards. To me, the walker would make a great 'support' card, so I rolled with it and created this custom saying from my Karen Foster Snap Stamps. Jack's sketch (below) shows some detail along the sides of the layout, so I used some eyelets (4 down, only 10,896 to go)
and some ribbon.

If you haven't read Kristi's blog in the last couple of days, you definitely need to read her latest blog post! She's up to something big. Something really BIG! And the DT girls don't even know about it!! Told you it was big! LOL And now even I am stalking her blog to find out what it is exactly!

On another note, sorry for the brown this week Heather! LOL Poor Heather has an allergy to the color brown. ;)

If you think this sketch is something you'd like to play with, then whip up a card, upload it to SCS or PCP with the keyword MTTSC19 and leave a link to it on Madelynn's blog post! And definitely do yourself a favor and visit the other DT girls....you might even stumble across a dirty girl! Seriously!

I'm flying home from Minnesota tonight. Plane lands at 11pm and then I have a 1.5hr drive home. Yuck. Then I have to be at work in the morning! Hopefully I have the energy to create a card tomorrow night! As always, thanks for stopping by.

You always make me laugh girl, but I had my Brown Free glasses so I am O.K.!!! several twinkling girls used brown so thank God for the glasses!!!

I think the saying and that walker are so perfect together!!!

You did a wonderful job with Jacks sketch!!
