Sketch Challenge 2 Sketches 4 You
And you say - what is this about a PRIZE PACKAGE. Come back on Monday and play along with Ivanka and I on “Oldie Moldie Monday – the day of the week when you dig out that once loved paper that has gotten buried by new loves – dig it out and create a card or cards from it. Ivanka and I are offering up prizes (yes we each have a prize) – but of course they is a little bit more to the challenge. Come back on Monday and play with us.
My prize includes a pad of Basic Grey paper and 3 different sticker collections from SRM Stickers. Intrigued - I hope so - and you don't need a blog to play - we have a Flicker gallery where you can post your creations.
Now onto the card for today - it is based on the weekly sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. A fun sketch - I have been wanting to make a baby card for a co worker who just became a grandparent - this card is for her and her husband. I still need to make a card for the parents. I love to use non traditional items on my cards. The main focus is the iron on applique giraffe - he has so much character - plus he was on sale.
The card also satisfies the midweek challenge on the Operation Write Home Card Blog - "wild thing" - I think my giraffe qualifies.
This card also qualifies for Circles 3 Different Ways on 365 Cards - circles on the giraffe, buttons, polka dots on the paper and the also the O's in my sentiments.
Beautiful weather here - so have been trying to work outside and inside and play with a little paper. The lawn is mostly mowed - at least what the public sees so the neighborhood doesn't look bad. Everyone enjoy your evening.
