Basic Grey Challenges # 25....a sketch....Irish eyes....
Oh, I'm soooooo glad it is the weekend!!! Aren't you!? This has been a crazy week for me!!! I had two DT projects to do...I know my pal, Kraftin' Kimmie, is probably giggling at me cuz she has a quadrillion DT's on the go and does it so effortlessly. She doesn't even break a sweat, he he he!!! Then everyone has been sick or is getting sick!!! I haven't been feeling that great but it just keeps lingering and doesn't really turn into anything much! Yesterday, my poor Ol' Da was under the weather and he just doesn't do sick well. Then, my hubby, Chris caught a terrible cold too. So, that is the crazy week I have been having.
So, I'm glad to stamp and play with my pretty paper later today and tomorrow! I am just doing up this post quickly now, as, Kieran, has his First Reconciliation this morning....Oh, yes, yet another stressor! That kid is going to be the next, Jim Carrey, I tell ya or the death of me what ever comes first,lol! He is always asking the tough questions but in a jokey funny, crack-your-mom-up-when-she-is-trying-to-be-all-serious, kinda way! It was so much easier doing Hannah's First Communion. Ahhhh...boys....God love em'!!!!
So, this week over at the BasicGrey Challenges blog, Martine, has designed another fab sketch! I know you are going to love it! I did!
For my card I thought I would make a St. Patrick's day card! I picked this fabulous WOJ image, Willow with Flowers, and I imagined her picking a bunch of wild shamrock in a Meadow in Ireland. Perhaps, on the Hill of Tara. Now, I'm not sure wild shamrock actually grows on the Hill of Tara but that is what I imagined, lol!
My Fall Accessories stamps came in the mail at the beginning of the week. So, I stamped Willow with Flowers on Georgia Pacific paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I stamped her on a yellow post it note again and cut it out to make a mask and stamped the Fall grass and flower stamp over top. I coloured the image with Copics and Twinkling H2o's and used Metallic Rub-ons around the edges of the image.
For the card I made a 6x6 base from green Bazzil cardstock and used a few sheet of BG Porcelain 12X12 paper, as, the 6x6 pad hadn't arrived yet but I got my hands on it now,smile! I flipped the sketch as my card just looked better that way especially with the big bow and I printed the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with the ribbon nameplate Nesties. I added the green satin ribbon and a few crystals and it was done!
Well, I just adored the sketch but I am not sure I am loving what I did with it. Ah, it is kinda growing on me though,smile!
Well, I better go get ready and wake that little monkey of mine, to do his First Reconciliation...oh goodness, I just hope it all goes well and he doesn't say anything too outrageous,smile.
Have a great weekend and I hope you play along with us at BG Challenges!
