Timeless Tuesday...Sketch challenge
Well dear and lovely Silke is hosting today's challenge for Timeless Tuesday @ Flourishes. You can be shady or you can be sketchy and I prefer the sketchy as let's face it ...someone does most of the work for you by providing a layout pattern. Well I love that kind of deal but being a bit ornery( yep, the resolution is kaput) I decided to change it up a bit and use one of my Nestie shapes instead of the circle. When I picked my color I had already decided to pick cherries for my image. Picking cherries at this time of year is like BRRRRR!!! So when I stamped and colored my bunch I put some glitter on to make it look like they were a bit chilly. It's a plain and simple card following the sketch and making it my own with a fruity take which is better then a flaky take. Don't know about you but I'm sick of those flakes called snow. We are due for a warm up. Going up into the 30's and that will seem like a sunny beach in Florida to me. My neighbor is going out of town so my son and I are working on our wiseman's new costume for a surprise when he comes home. I'm thinking a chef hat and apron with a sign that say's Burger or Brat? His grill is just outside his back door and he does use it in the winter. I'll take a picture if we can pull it off. Have a great week stampers and remember to always wear clean underwear in case you're in an accident. As for us "oldies" we carry a clean pair in case we HAVE an accident. It's a crapper getting old...can't even sneeze without a problem.
