Having Fun

This week I'm a Guest Designer on
The challenge theme is Sketch

This is the sketch that I chose to use

and this is my finished card

I used the Friends Forever digi image from
I used chalks for the backgroung and the digi image is
colored with Copics.  Punched a couple of circles for
part of the sentiment.  Uhm, it was lacking something.  I couldn't
find just the right thing but settled on the button.
Colored designer papers to match and the card is all
ready to mail to someone.

I thought I was going to melt yesterday.  It has been so hot
and humid here in Coastal South Carolina.  I hate to see my
electric bill this month.  I'll probably have to take out a loan to pay it.

If you are staying in and keeping cool like I am.....
stop in at OWSE Events and have some fun with us this weekend.

We are hosting a Christmas in July party.
We will be partying beginning Friday, July 15th thru the 19th.
We will have challenges, games, a very special guest and prizes.
There are even a few surprises in store for you.
Get out that party hat, think Christmas and join us
for our Christmas in July Party.

Thanks for joining me today.
