Caardvark's Sketchfest Monday


Wow, I am on a roll. Two days in a row of posting. WooHoo! I love challenges, especially sketches. Today I am following the sketch from Caardvark's Cardfest Monday sketch (http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/2009/09/sketchfest-monday.html). This one took me awhile because I knew what stamp I wanted to use and had to figure out how to work it all out. My sister's birthday is next week so I knew I was making her a birthday card. I picked this stamp because I love to send humorous cards to my sisters. I then had to find some paper that conveyed a "crazy" feeling. So that is the just of how this card came about. I pretty much followed the sketch as it is shown so I won't go into all the boring details. I did use my Nesties for the rectangles and the stamp is from TAC. The greeting on the left side was computer generated. If you are wondering how this works as a birthday card, the inside says "At least I didn't miss your birthday!" Corny, huh? I still think it works since the gal on the stamp is so darn cute. I have a lot of those days! LOL Thanks for stopping by.
