Some Odd Girl Challenge...A Fab Sketch...P.S. I {Heart} You!!

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are going to have a little turkey this Thanksgiving long weekend with friends and family and enjoy the glorious weather we are having. I wish we could just forgo winter all together and just keep this weather but I'm thinking that is some serious wishful thinking. I also wanted to let you know that I am getting better from the shingles. I can honestly say that I would not wish shingles on my worst enemy. Such a horrible thing to come down with. It is starting to heal up but I still have burning pain in my arm which is worrisome. I just hope that goes way soon.


Well, I made this card this morning for the sketch challenge that they have this week over at the Some Odd Girl Challenge. I rediscovered some old paper that I thought would be perfect for this card. This a 6x6 paper pad called Love Letters by Little Yellow Bicycle Paper Co. Some of the pages are already die cut and there was one with the perfect bracket edge on it!  I teamed this paper up with this super sweet, Some Odd Girl, called Lover Letter Kaylee. I coloured her with my Copics and cut around her and pop-dotted her on the circle panel. The little open scallop border die was cut with my Die-namics and I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics to cut the little flag for the Melissa Frances rub-on sentiment. I added a little black crushed velvet ribbon and a sprinkling of gems.


Here is the inside....another Melissa Frances rub-on.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my SOG Challenge card!

Enjoy your long weekend, turkey, yummy pumpkin pie and I hope you have a little time to get crafty too!
