Seems like this week is going by at a more sedate pace, thank goodness. I like to enjoy things and not rush through them so it is nice to finally have a week that is going by at a normally! LOL!
Izzy and I had a pretty nice day yesterday. For some reason I was really tired and didn't hardly want to do anything. I actually took a little nap! It felt so good I have to admit. Might just have to do that more often. I am really hoping the temperature is a little warmer today so we can at least go outside for a few minutes. Cross your fingers!
Well, alright. Down to the good stuff! It is Tuesday which means it is Twinkling Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!! I so love to see what Madelynn has come up with. She truly is a sketch genius!!! I dont' know how she does it. Ohhh and guess what? I have the honor of being this week's featured Twinkie!!! How cool is that! Thank you so much Madelynn! So without further ado, here is the this week's Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge and my card!
Isn't it amazing!!! I just love the double panels for your image. And such a clean simple sketch to boot!! Although I have been told that putting an image in the middle is acceptable, I kind of went with the double panel image and created a little scene. I did however move my sentiment so I really hope that is okay Madelynn! Awesome sketch for a scene card! I hope you didn't doubt me! Remember I am the Sketch Queen so I should know about this! LOL! Anywhoo, I started this card by stamping Hanna, the lamp, books and table from Bookworm Hanna by Hanna stamps on white card stock and colored them in using my copics. I drew in the design on the lamp along with the picture using my copic multiliner pen, copics and SU! markers. Following the sketch, I layered on pink, orange and brown card stock along with some paper from American Craft. I stamped the sentiment, mounted it on pink and orange card stock, bent it and popped it off in the corner. To finish off the card I added faux stitching to everything basically because I like it!! LOL! I think it is a fun and girly card for anyone who enjoys reading!
Well, if you liked my card you should just see all of the amazing creations the DT has come up with this week! They will really knock your socks off so be sure to visit and give them some love.

So for my second project today, I really wanted to use my new Rock the Farm set from The Greeting Farm. I have had it for a week and a half and haven't used it yet!!! Gasp!!! I know, I know!! I just have been having so much fun with all my other TGF stamps that poor little Ian was sitting neglected. So Sunday I sat down and started this card. Of course I couldn't find my buttons so I had to wait until yesterday to finish it, but it is finally complete. I used this week's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge for the layout.
Could this little Ian be any cuter? Seriously!!! I just love the hat and the fish!!! Awesome!!! So I started this card by stamping Ian from Rock the Farm by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored him in using my copics. I then cut him out using my nesties and mounted him on green and blue paper. Following the sketch, I layered on kraft card stock, red card stock that I ran through my spots and dots embossing folder and some DP from Basic Grey's Two Scoops. I went ahead and popped off my main image to give it some depth. To create the bobber sentiment, I cut out kraft, red and white card stock using my nesites and then layered them on. I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the white circle and added a black eyelet and twine to the top. To complete the fishing look, I made a little fishing net out of twine, attached it to the corner of my card and then glued on some fishing buttons. I went ahead and sponged chocolate chip around he edges to dirty them up. I really like how this card turned out. Close to what I had in my head!
Now for my quick Izzy story! So Izzy has decided that she likes to wear Mommy's shoes and socks. Every once in awhile she will disappear into our bedroom and then I will hear, "Click, Click, Click." She is trying to walk in one of my heels. It is so, so cute!! Never mind, I can hardly walk in some of the heels she tries to wear! LOL! Maybe she is going to be a fashion model some day! I mean she is already trying to bring back leg warmers! So here is my future beauty queen with her dog, Tuxy, standing in as her body guard!
Ahh, the joys of motherhood! LOL!!! Well thanks everyone for stopping by today! It has been fun! Lots of smiles!
