Gettin' sketchy this Monday Morning!


Good morning!  Rise and shine! :)   First, thank you for all your sweet comments, especially about my texting blunder!  I, too, can laugh at myself ... now!  

Second, how about a wee sketch challenge this holiday Monday to get your creative juices flowing!  If you check out the Happy Monday Challenge this week, you'll see a fun sketch to work with, which I inverted to make it work better for my card layout :)  

My bff's baby daughter is turning 1 this Friday so I made this little card to attach to her gift.  And I cannot stop touching, looking at and (yes, petting!) the Echo Park Little Girl and Little Boy paper collections - gahhhhhh!  Delightful!!! 






 I gave this card a bit of unusual fold to break up the monotony a bit :)  I left a small writing space so the girls and lil Tony can write their names on the birthday note to Emma :)

And that's it for me -- we have a busy day ahead with the kids being out of school - YAY! My favorite time - when my babies are home! :)

Hugs and Blessings!

  1. I love the softness of this card. It looks so soft. Colors are fabulously coordinated.

    and I like that little sentiment/cake in the round hole punch.

    thank you Kelly for the kind words on my blog. It's easy to make if you're interested--- Just follow Nicole's video. (Canadian Nickel- she's fab!)
    Hugs, N
