Super Sketchy Sunday live & laugh


Welcome to another 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday.  Pam's changed how she draws her sketches, but interpret as you wish and come play along with the 365 Cards crew.  I've used this week's Play Date Cafe colors (which are my sister's wedding colors-- that's going to be me in my bridesmaid dress later this month!).  And I also recently got Leeanne's Artful Delight card kit, so I decide to make the entire card with the new goodies. 

Go see what RoseWendiDana, and Jenny, the rest of the 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday DT have created.

And since I had the March Artful Delight kit out I thought I'd challenge myself to play along with the sketch challenge.  Since layouts aren't my thing I thought I'd try the sketch on a notebook.  My gym buddy has been asking me to make her a pretty food journal, so I thought this might help inspire her to keep track of her apples, and I thought positive encouragement with the sentiment was a good way to keep her on track.

And because I have a crafty 6 year old he wanted to play along too, I'm constantly amazed by how he interprets sketches.  Mr. Ben loves comments, so please leave him some love.

Materials: Hero Arts Live & Laugh sentiment, Lifestyle Crafts Celebrate letterpress, twine, doily, American Crafts yellow card stock, Tattered Angels black mist, EK Success 1 3/4 the inch circle punch, Versafine black ink

Journal: Stampin Up apple, Artful Delight March kit, SRM sticker, Stampin Up scallop punch, My Favorite Things scallop die, PTI card stock, Tim Holtz distress ink shabby shutters, My Mind's Eye rhinestones, Fiskars corner rounder, PTI edgers die, Ben Franklin notebook

So happy that you picked up a kit and if this card is any indication of what you can do with it, we are in for a lot of treats. I can't believe your sister's wedding is coming up already!

I love your "live and laugh" card! It reminds me of the stack of doilies that I have in one of my craft supplies boxes that I need to start using!
