Sneak Peek: Peaceful Foil Petals for Retrosketches
Cardinal on branch for ATCAS

I Love you for Unscripted Sketches

Hi Everyone.  Happy Thursday.

I hope you are all managing to stay warm and out of the way of the latest storm! 

One of the cards that I made last weekend used the unusual sketch from Unscripted Sketches



When I saw it, I realized I had the perfect thing to use for the sketch.  I had a reel of tickets that I received in the SSS January 2014 Loved card kit.  I really had no idea what to do with these tickets when the box arrived, but the sketch inspired me to get them out and put them to good use.  I paired them with an old Stampin' Up! rub on and, once again, got out my sewing machine!

Here's my take on the challenge:



To add a little more dimension and break the sentiment from the tickets, I scored three lines below the sentiment.  It almost looks as though the tickets have something to hang from :-)  I don't know about you, but I thought it was a great use of the tickets and that they work so well for the sketch.  My stitching still needs some work, however :-)

On a personal note:

Lou and I are still enjoying spending our last few days of vacation together.  I'm not quite ready to go back to work yet :-)

My thanks to Doris, Kelly, Loll, Rach and Terri for their comments on my Peaceful Foil card. Kelly, I loved the fact that you had snow and that there was just enough for the kids to go sledding and the dogs to romp!  Thanks also you to, Terri and Doris for your kind words.   Rach, I hope you are feeling better, my friend!  Loll, always happy to enable a fellow crafter :-)

Thanks to Colleen, Rach, Sandy, Loll, Marge and Kelly for their comments on my Peaceful Petals card.  I love that so many of you appreciated the vicarious sighting of a mink!  I hope he pops around again and that I can get a photograph this time.

I'll be back with another card tomorrow.  In the meantime stay warm and safe.  Warm hugs and prayers to those of you who need a little lift tonight.
