Timeless Tuesday...a sketch

Well don't you just love it when the challenge is a sketch??? I do, because it means this feeble old brain doesn't have to ponder ( that means think) about how my layout will be set up. So, I said hoooray, or is it hoorah? Or it might just be ...well hot damn! Anyway this is the challenge over at the Flourishes TT blog site. So I got out some glitzy Christmasie paper and ribbon and went to town. I'll bet you wonder what town I went to huh...well stamping town of course. I used the lovely set called Christmas Candles along with some beautious paper from my local scrap store put out by Making Memories...called Mistletoe. Found some fancy schmansy ribbon that had the glitz and knew it would work. My bowmaker is giving my head a dizzy feeling as I forgot how to use it and had to rely on my own skills to produce a bow. My coloring was done with my favorite water colored pencils..just love them. Used the circle dies from Spellbinders and viola
( French for here you go). I'm done.
Had a real work out at the gym this morning with my sexy sweet Rory who is my very own personal trainer. Well he's not mine exclusively but I pretend he is. Came home and ready for the linement.'s hard to be fit.
Happy week fellow bloggers and see you next go round.



Your post made me smile today. Love the card, very nice Christmas card. Your coloring is wonderful...I used to walk 3 miles a day to stay fit. Now I just think about those days. Wahaha

Glad to read you're in tip-top cowboy rustlin' shape! Pretty, classy card. Really like that you actually followed the sketch. Sometimes I look at the sketch and the finished product and scratch my head - (my fleas don't get it either!).
