Trina's hosting a blog candy sketch challenge that will run until September 5!! Go check it out...she's offering lots of really cute Sugar Nellie stamped images, papers, clear stamp sets, ribbons and more!
I have a different set of Sugar Nellies than she has, but I LOVE all of them!! So, yes, you are in competition, LOL. You can enter as many times as you'd like, as long as you enter a different card each time. OH, and you don't have to use any particular stamps...just follow the sketch!
OK...ONTO MY CARD:
I used my Sugar Nellie stamp called "Picking Apples," (designed by the lovely Elizabeth Bell). This one pretty much has the "works." I can't think of many more things I could do to this without it looking way over-done. I put sparkly gellroll pens in her bow on the hat, I sewed all 3 layers together using light pink thread and sewing machine. I used mostly my ink pads and an aqua painter to color this image because the dp matched pretty closely with Cranberry Crisp, Mellow Moss, and Certainly Celery. The punch is a Martha Steward flower border punch, which I used on both sides of my middle layer and then tied ribbon around it.
UPDATE ON BIL:
Thank you for your prayers and well wishes for my brother-in-law. They put a stint in and he is expected to go home soon--although he'll be out of work for a little while and has kids still in H.S. and college. Pray for a quick recovery and that God provides the finances needed.
What is with this wierd weather?? It was 108 degrees here yesterday in Central Oregon, and today it's storming--bad thunder and lightening. *sigh* I can't wait for FALL!
