Monday Sounds Relaxing!

Happy Saturday! It's been busy here so I am late posting. First off is a card for that wonderful Saturday ritual Unscripted Sketches. I wanted to do something Christmas but here is where I ended up!

The base is certainly celery (trust me) even though it looks like an old retired color. The pattern paper is from Stampin' Up!'s Tall Tales designer series paper. Guess I was punch happy today. Can you find where I used the following punches?

  • Modern label
  • scallop circle
  • 1/2" circle
  • 1-1/4" circle

I also thought I would share what I made for my kids yesterday to celebrate getting through the first week of school.

This little purse/bag holds 2 of the movie theatre size candy boxes. I just measured them and went from there.You can see the velcro that holds it closed. In case you were wondering, I did get them each 2 boxes. I never learn! I was thinking it would last a few days since 1 is Everlasting Gobstoppers. But I think they finished them off today!!

I may not have a stamping idea for you tomorrow but should be back to normal Monday. We host our annual pool party tonight and will spend tomorrow visiting my grandmother (who had unscheduled surgery this morning due to a broken hip) at the hospital after church. And I have about a hundred pounds of tomatoes to process!

Have a great weekend!!

I always find it so funny when you have in mind what a card should be and the card goes a different direction. Fabulous end result though, great work with the sketch. Thanks for being Unscripted again this week!
