our family traditions...

Good Morning!

Before I start chatting about 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday, I wanted to let you know that I'll be posting my blog candy winner for the 365 Cards Blog Hop on a separate post.

Okay, onto today's sketch! I was a slight rebel on the sketch...

This is my take on it...I decided against using any of the yellow part of the sketch {insert evil laughter}.

Are you trying to spot the Cosmo Cricket? It's the blue base paper...it is from their Get Happy line! Do you notice anything different? Maybe something that I don't typically do on my cards...like ever? Yup, check it out ladies...I made a Bunny Ears Ribbon Bow! Have you ever noticed that I never make bows on my cards...yes, I use ribbon but it is a glorified knot..that's it, that's all. You'll be seeing the traditional bow alot, thanks savitri, being the slow person that I am, I actually watched that tut 2 or maybe 3 times...duh.

All the epoxy embellies are Love Elsie...the button is fancy pants. The ribbon, twine & felt snowflake are SU.

For you Google Readers have you ever checked out your trends? Here is a portion of mine:

From your 574 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 7,567 items.

I got 2 words for you:

Good Grief.

I LOVE this! Aren't bows the BEST!?! And the shape you went with is just so bold. I may have to give it a whirl! :-)

Tee hee - a sketch rebel but with justified results! Love the result of your rebelious streak - a really cool unusual shaped card!
GORGEOUS bow too btw, I really need to work on mine!
