Seize The Sketch #21 reminder - Yum Yum!

Did you have a nice weekend?  We enjoyed some pleasant weather, ate our dinners outside, and worked around the house.  I also went to the gym:  my fourth visit since last year's foot surgery.  Yay!  Time to shed the pounds that have crept back on.  :/

I had time to craft, too, and made a reminder card for the current Seize The Sketch challenge.  I used this cute image from a friend.  She stamped a bunch of different things on little cardstock bits and mailed them to me.  This My Favorite Things image is called Hello, Cupcake.  My 15 YO thinks the little girl looks scary.  LOL


Our current sketch:


As a cherry on top of the cupcake, I used a new-to-me Twinkle Goosebump by Queen & Co.  Looks delish, doesn't it?


And down at the bottom of the card, I used a stamp from Too Terrific Tags (Stampin' Up!) that has never seen ink.  Check out what I did with the little girl's dress too:  after coloring it with shades of blue-green Copic markers, I used a Colorless Blender to create a little scallop-and-dot pattern.  Sweet!


I hope you get a chance to play along.  Just click HERE for all the details!

I've had a few people tell me the PI girls creep them out! I don't get it myself either! This is utterly adorable - I love the way you did her dress!!

Leslie Miller said...

Darling card for the sketch, Colleen! I never used this particular tag stamp, either, and I let this set go. Probably should have kept it seeing as how I rarely give up a sentiment set. Kicking myself!
