Sketch challenge Deconstructed JenOH MY this has been one heck of a weekend. I had 9 scrapbook kits that needed completed in two days ...done ... then my Internet email carrier Centurylink decided it did not want to work so after hours and hours of waiting, trying different things and finally got a tech to help I set up a gmail account so I could send the photos, work sheets to the company... phew I only got one card made. The card below this post was made a week ago for the Unscripted group challenge but today this card was done in about an hour. I had it in my head what I wanted to do so that helped a lot and lucky being close to July 4th there are three challenges that are for Red, White and Blue .. so I have ONE card for FOUR challenges. ... Someone is looking out for me after all. But I really hate not making more cards. I love the outlet and relaxation of making cards..oh well there is next weekend..

Sweet Sketch One card THREE challenges.. The Sweet Stop SSS113 using the above sketch.. The Pink Elephant TPE103 http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ using 3 pattern papers, 2 buttons, 1 punch 1 ribbon... and Bugaboo-Catch the bug Its a mans world theme http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/its-mans-world.html Ok my DH says the card is too busy but he does like it. I told him it is a smaller card and I needed the hill to be on grass vs just a strip of paper and if a smaller image you would loose too much detail. I am pleased with the way it came out. I wanted the number background as it more or less went with the sentiment.
