Welcome to Get Sketchy #18!

The Bonus Challenge is to make a matching envy!

Our sponsor this week is:


Woot Woot!

The prize:

Scor-it Mini

Mini Tote Bag

A-2 Envelope-it

Yup, that's what I said...WOW!

Here is my take on the sketch. It is an almost exclusive American Crafts card. I bought a pack of the Craft Fair papers at M's for 40% off....all the patterned paper is from that set. The American Crafts ribbon is velvet grograin and yes, thickers...they are from AC too. Actually I think that I picked up the ribbon and thickers from Jennifer Pebbles' garage sale:)

This was made especially for my mand!! Not necessarily a masculine card but pa-hooey...

Thank goodness for my 'lil Janome...she's been working overtime these days....more on that later.

I hope that you'll join in on the Get Sketchy fun!!!

I am sooo fortunate to be surrounded by such kind bloggie friends...lookie what Sherry sent me:

I know...that card is delish...callin' my name with the colors and the flower! The pens are a sweet gesture...I sent her a card and used a $ gel pen of some kept stopping and going on me...skipping, I guess that is the word I'm searching for. She sent me the uber fabulous Signo pens...not 1 but 3!!!! Check out that 6x6 Template...wooooo totally justifies me finally buying some spray ink....I've been wanting to play with that stuff....Thanks bunches Sherry!!! I love everything!!!

Well, back to my Janome...remember these felt tissue holders that I've been making? The last couple days I've been working overtime to make a ton of them for my Holiday Trunk Sale. Remember, I was the one that bought a total of 4 yards of felt...I have enough to supply an army:)

Well, look at some of the embellies I'll be using on them:

Felt flowers...some of them are even stitched...OMGoodness...they are darling! Yes, I could probably use my sizzix die but I absolutely adore the stitched ones...yes, I could stitch my own but time ladies...who has the time??? The solid flowers are uber thick and oh-so-fabbie!

I'll be sure to take a pic of some of the embellished finished tissue holders...I tell you, this post has taken me forever to type up...I keep deleting pictures...having to re-upload them...having to of those 'problem posts'. Just had to throw that out there because I know my fellow bloggers can sympathize.
