Day 162 – Super Sketchy Sunday

I know some of you on occasion have really late nights by your scrap desk. I don’t. I have really early mornings by mine. Today I woke up 04.45 am. I gave up 20 minutes later and sat by my desk within ten minutes. Tonight I’ll be tired by eight but who cares, I made a layout AND a card today. Yay for me!

I started with a layout since the 365 cards wasn’t to be posted until an hour or two later.  I’ve had the theme in my head for a couple of days and I found a great sketch at Mojoholder ( a new and very nice acquaintance). This is about my son right now, how he feels, what he likes and what he dislikes.

I was asked a couple of days ago if I stamp on my layouts, and I said yes but realized it was quite some time ago I did that. Now was the time.

Over to the card, the Sunday Sketch at 365 cards. Beautiful sketch as always. My own challenge today was to use the scrap paper from my layout and stamps I rarely use. And I like how it came out. I have ONE Tim Holtz stamp set and I’ve used it like three times. How sad is that?

Thanks for popping by! I appreciate all the sweet comments soooo much! Thank you!

Off to clean the house. Yay for me!

The card is a perfect take on the sketch (I love Pam's sketches, too). Great image, and I love the soft green and blue... pretty.

Vilken fin lo du gjort om sonen, så kul att ha kvar och läsa om några år igen! Gillar färgerna du använt och designen! Fotot är supercoolt, du är så duktig att få till det så det blir intressant!
Kortet är coolt med dom stämplarna och bra att bli av med lite spillpapper!
Just nu håller jag på med ett kort till min yngsta syster när hon fyller 40 om ett par veckor och till det har jag också använt spill och lite överblivna sidenblommor, jättekul att använda såna saker också.
Hoppas du inte tog ut dig nu när du städade huset idag!
Tack för den gulliga och snälla kommentaren i min blogg om bröllopskuben, betyder så mycket!
