A Little Something For You!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I hope all of you had a great weekend! We certainly did. It was amazingly beautiful here and we were able to go to the botanical gardens. Izzy had a great time looking at all the plants and walking around. In the Japanese garden they have these giant koi that you can feed. I thought that possibly she might be a little afraid of them but she loved them. We told her that they were kissing because they come right up out of the water with their mouths open hoping for some food. She actually didn't want to leave and keeps talking about going back!

Well yesterday was Izzy's performance at gymnastics. It was so cute. It basically consisted of free gym time for 10 minutes and then a little routine they had. Izzy did great during the free gym time but pretty much hid in my lap during the performance itself. So of course I have no pictures at all! The best part was that they each got medals at the end and Izzy was so excited to get her "necklace"! She carries it around everywhere with her and couldn't wait to show it to daddy last night. Of course we had to round out the day with a doctor's visit. Just a checkup but lets just say it didn't go well. The second she stepped on the the scale the crying started and didn't end until we walked out the door. I wonder how the pediatrician doesn't go deaf? I mean she is listening to a screaming kid with a stethoscope. I bet it is one of those secret work hazards that they never tell you about. Anywhoo, the whole kicker was she didn't even get any shots!!!!! I mean sheesh! If we could only go back to the days of not remembering things, that would be awesome! LOL!

So today is Tuesday and that means it is Twinkling Tuesday time! Madelynn's seven-year-old brother, Jack, has this week's sketch for us and it is sure a fun one. Not too complicated but with lots and lots of detail. So without further ado, I present to you Jack's sketch and my card!



At first I was a little confused by the three dots in the circle but I made a happy little mistake by stamping my boy too close to the edge of the paper and voila, a place to put my brads!!!! I started this card by first stamping Oakley from the new Summer Kit by Whiff of Joy on white card stock and colored him in using my copics. I just received my kit in the mail over the weekend and have been stamping them up like mad! I love them! Any whoo, I then stamped him again and stamped one of the Beach Sentiments from All That Scraps in the center of the wood, colored it in, cut it out and popped it off the main panel. To create the log, I simply took my multiliner pen and drew it in then colored it in with my copics. Following the sketch, I layered on rust, yellow and brown card stock along with DP from A2Z. I finished the card off by placing jumbo eyelets in each of the four corners. I have to say I am pretty happy with this card except for all the white space around Oakley. I think if I made it again I would draw in some trees or something. You know me, terrified of white space!

Now it is time to head out and check out the rest of the fabulous DT's creations! This week's featured designer is Debbie and her work will surely knock your socks off. Don't forget all you need to do to participate is simply type in the keyword MTTSC23 when uploading to PCP or SCS and leave us a comment on the Twinkling Blog so we can check out your work!
Thanks everyone for stopping by today! Lots of smiles!

Emily said...

YEAH IZZY!!! I also feel sorry for Dr. and Kids but their not all screaming!!! I love the layout, and I must try...I am with you on white space, ( I personally would have added a tree :P If I could only draw one :(!!!) Maybe I could talk with you tomorrow during nap, if your not taking one tomorrow....or me either!!!!

Michelle said...

Hi Janna - thanks for the bday wishes yesterday! It was great to "hear" from you!! Izzy is adorable!! I can't believe the memory they have...abby was the same way with the dr. She'd freak once we arrived at the bldg. It wasn't until she was like 4 that it started getting better. She still needs reassurness of what is going to happen every time we go!! Now she's afraid of having to pee in a cup! Go figure!

Anyway, LOVE your card! I didn't get the WOJ summer kit and I'm so kicking myself. LOVE this image and your choice of colors is wonderful! I love how he's holding the sign - too cute!!

Heather said...

Great job with this sketch! Your coloring is so inspiring. I got my WOJ kit this weekend too and you've totally got me excited about inking it up. Your card is fabulous!!!!

WickedPixie said...

Izzy is adorable and I love your Izzy stories. I am sending you wishes of a more reasonable child than mine because Ronnie is the most stubborn ever and at 8 she decided to REFUSE to have things done that she thought would "hurt" like have the eyedrops to dilate her eyes at the optometrist! This year, at 9, she reluctantly agreed to a vaccination, though! :) Your card is wonderful! Love those colors and I think the amount of white space is perfect! :) Traci

Heather said...

This is adorable Janna! You are such the artist! I love how this looks like a watercolor painting! Amazing!

Your Izzy stories are so great! She reminds me so much of my niece at that age!

Tasha Hickert said...

Ahh, the botanical garden. I think I spent an entire week trimming one bush in the Japanese garden!! I interned there one summer during college.

You card is amazing as usual. Guess what? I think the white space really sets off the boy so there! I do really like the brads to the left--it's always great when things work out.
