Very Sketchy ...

Pin It


Happy Tuesday, Stampers!

Today's card project was created for the Stampin' Royalty sketch challenge, SR#4. For all the challenging deets, including a look at the sketch I followed, clicky HERE.

This card also qualifies for the vintage challenge at "If the Shoe Fits." Clicky HERE to check out all the challenging deets. And the 'hearts' challenge at "Hand Full of Stamps." Go HERE to check out all the "Hand Full ..." challenge deets. And I had to enter the card in "The Corrosive Challenge Blog" challenge ... just 'cuz I love the name of their blog!

With the exception of the vintage dictionary page, all the patterned paper on this card was created with digital files. The grungy tag is from my stash as is the walnut ink-stained string.

I used a stamp from SU's new I {Heart} Hearts stamp set, layering the image three times on the tag for some dimension. I got a little carried away with the whole heart thing and added a row across the bottom of card. Easy-peasy and very sketchy!

For the rest of the a-mazing product info, check out the supply list below.

Soooooo, on Sunday Sheila and I delivered her Mom to Palm Beach International Airport for her return flight home to Georgia, the Just-Peachy State.

Mrs. L. is a nervous flyer at best and begged us to go stay and wait with her for her flight to be called. We decided to hop into a bar and have a drink. Sheila's Mom decided to have a couple more than two ... she calls it "flight insurance."

As we were leaving the lounge, a uniformed flight attendant smiled and chatted her up a bit. Mrs. L. decided to take the opportunity to say to the flight attendant, "I'm so nervous about flying today. Tell me, Dear, do these things crash very often?"

To which the attendant replied, "No, Ma'am ... just once."

Reassuring, no?

Thanks so much for stopping by ... have a great day!
