We have a super fun sketch this week -- perfect for using some of those scraps that you've been saving. Aw come on, you know you have a whole bag or box full (smile). Our sketch this week is by Melissa, and it looks like this:
We also have another surprise embellishment bag as this week's prize. The bag will contain some fun embellishments and a small stamp set -- maybe you can use them in an upcoming sketch challenge -- hum?
I am not going to be able to give you a whole lot of information about my card because I did raid my scraps for every bit of the card except the sentiment and the card base. I started with a white 5 x 7" card. The background is a green and white. The top square and the two on the right side of each row are from another piece of paper I found in my scrap bag. The next two (move left) are from a second sheet, and the last one (bottom row) from a third sheet. I don't think any of them are from the same "set" of papers, but they all matched quite nicely. The chipboard sentiment actually matches the flowers in the set of 3 squares with flowers and leaves.
Some of you may remember that I have a friend who has been going through chemotherapy. I try to send her a card weekly to let her know that I am thinking of her and praying for her. The last time I saw her, she said that the cancer is responding favorably to the chemo. This is great news and made me quite happy. I plan on sending this card to her!
I apologize for not getting my blog posted last week. I did make my DT card (as you may know if you visited the TMS blog), but I have been meeting myself coming and going lately. In addition to six days a week work weeks for the past several weeks, I now am trying to work in those yearly doctor's appointments (mammogram, physicals, etc.). I guess my Doc was trying to help me out because her office had scheduled me for two different procedures this morning for the same time at two different places -- like completely across town from each other! Anyway, hoping things will start to slow down soon, and I can get back on track again.
Happy crafting, friends --
