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!
