A Sketch in Time!

Pin It

Hi!  It has been brought to my (mom's) attention that I haven't been posting regularly enough of late (I'm looking at you, Ms. Angelica!  :)   and I am here to both apologize and rectify that situation…  You ever just have those weeks where you just feel like work is kicking your booty?  Yeah???

Ok, so I'm glad to know I'm not alone  :)

I promise you're about to be seeing a lot of me!  I have big plans to be über-creative, to unleash my artistic mojo, and to light up the blog-o-sphere with cheeky commentary! (and no delusions of grandeur, either, apparently…  :)

Well, here, at long last, is a card I created based on this week's sketch over at RetroSketches.  You'll notice I stuck to the sketch pretty literally, which was kinda a new thing to me…  And I kinda liked it!  :)

The patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Konnichiwa line and the stamps and inks are both from Papertrey Ink (the stamp set is the special edition Natural Beauties from this year's Stamp A-Faire and just may be my new favorite stamp set!  :)

Here's the sketch from RetroSketches I was working off of:

Can't you see how closely I followed it?  Like a good girl??  :)

Hope you have a great end o' the week!  Stay tuned for a flurry of action as Melissa and I (along with a new partner in crime) will be taking on Mission: KitPossible Part Deux starting this weekend using the September Simon Says Stamp kits!  :)

Until then, carry on, my crafty friends!  :)


  1. I just LOVE what you did with the NATURAL BEAUTIES stamps. (I waited months and reworked my PTI order several times so I could get the set:)
    I can't seem to figure out the very center of the flowers though..Your button addition is a great idea.
    Got my SEMPTEMBER KOM and am ready to play!
    I took a quick peek inside and then set it aside forcing myself NOT to use anything until you give the cues.
    When the movie came out in REDBOX I was "one of those people" that pushed the button to make the MISSION IMPOSSABLE THEME SONG play, just to hear the song...my kids were so embarassed:)

  2. ahhh, the masses are applauding! A card and a followed sketch. bravo, bravo ;) I truly adore this card. Carrying on...

  3. This is so beautiful Jennifer! The mix of patterned papers is really lovely.

  4. this is gorgeous, I adore the mix of patterns and colors...hope you have a super fabulous week!

    enjoy *~*
