Monday's Sketches

It is Monday and while I should be doing laundry, bills, and errands, it was a lot more fun to make cards!

Sketch #129

The Sketch of the week was an easy one for me. I made two versions of it.

Version One is a one of a kind card. I had pieces from scrapbook night in the crop bag. The sticker from Hobby Lobby fit quite nicely after I matted it. I free-hand some hearts out of another scrap. I turned the sketch around a bit.

Version Two is made from DCWV's spring fling/summer time stack, pink cardstock, and Making Memories' lace paper (from Ollie's). I generated the sentiment on the computer some time ago so I don't know what font I used. I added a few rhinestone flowers to the card for a bit of jazz. I made a few then I still had a few pieces left so I made a few more. I think I finally did about 30 cards for OWH and me.

Sketch #59

Arrrggghh, Mateys!  I made the pirate card below, using Sketch #59 above. I had to turn the design a bit to fit on the paper so that the words of the paper are readable. I added the brown strips with white dots, more of the strips I bought at the LSS going out of business. The owner had saved the price strip so I have a bunch of them. They work pretty good as ribbon. I got the ship from the free digi stamps site. I generated another sentiment from my computer, using Blackadder font. Archiver's had the pirate hats on sale. I wish I had bought more than one package. I made more cards than I have hats for so I will have to look in my brads for more pirate items.

Thanks for stopping by. Later. I guess I go complete my chores now.
