Good afternoon all! Well I have had a very productive weekend! Mind you there has been little housework done but it will still be here tomorrow (the dirt) lol. Last evening I went to a scrapbook sale and what a sale it was! My friend Sonia has decided to downsize her entire line of everything!! She hasn't scrapped in over a year and her new found "obsession" is sewing. I picked up quite a few goodies-punches, ribbon, scads of paper and all for a song. I thought it was rather sad. When you see it all laid out on tables it's astounding to see how much stuff you acquire. I know I am the same way-tons of things still in their original packaging. Like she said half the fun is the shopping!
My card today is for 2 challenges. Tuesday Morning Sketches is celebrating their 1 year anniversary- already! The challenge this week is to select any 1 of the 52 sketches from the last year. I selected this one:
I am also playing along with this weeks etsy inspired challenge. I love this challenge for 2 reasons- I love to find different inspirations and it's a great way to discover some really cool new stores. This weeks store is called Octavia & Brown and their specialty is vintage glassware. I took my inspiration from these 2 different styled glasses.
For my card I went with the color scheme in the 1st glasses and the shape in the 2nd glasses
Sunshine & Giggles. This image is called bachelor pad. He was colored with prismacolor pencils and chalked with color box blue chalk. All the dp is from Stampin Up and I can't tell you who the dp is from- it some I got last night at Sonia's and no name to be found on it.
Ok I am back to work- I am almost finished with my card for the Midnight challenge for next week- I love that she gives sneak peaks of her sketches!
See ya later,
