Friday Sketchers Card


Happy Tuesday All!
I have to be better about not leaving peeps hanging.....my daughter Bianca missed quite a few days of school last week because her fever wouldn't go away and she stayed home yesterday with one. When I went to wake her up, she was sooo hot!! I wish this stupid virus would just go AWAY!! My oldest DS Reggie Jr. goes back to school on Wednesday. He's eating now and the pain from those wisdom teeth are all gone & he's all caught up with his school work thanks to his awesome tutor!! I apologize for not updating you about them......it just slips my mind and I don't want to bore you with my personal stuff.

On to my post for today: this card is for the Friday Sketchers Challenge and it was admittedly a challenge! When I started, I thought it would be easy but as I got going---I realized it wasn't going to be easy at all. I may have done this to myself though since I wanted to use some kooky colors.....dang brain LOL!! I do like the final result even though I was cursing myself throughout the process----I think I'll work on the Mojo sketch next....it *appears* to be less stressful :-)

I'm off to start my day and make sure that everything's ready for technique class tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
TTFN,

  5. Gorgeous card....those colors are amazing together! Sorry to hear your kidlings have been so sick....I probably shouldn't type this because then it will be "out there", but we've been pretty lucky this year. Except for a minor bout with pink eye & a couple of colds, & one sore throat, we've been lucky!! Usually there's vomit & fevers all around, lol!!!! Take care of yourselves!!

  11. Neat color combo. We must be on the same wavelength today. I challenged myself to use cameo coral too because it's one I rarely touch.
