sketchfest friday…

TGIF!!!!  Today is casual day at work and day six of the Caardvarks Sketchfest challenge!  Time to party!


I think this has to be my favorite sketch from Heidi Van Laar this week!  It just really matches my style and as soon as I saw it this morning, I knew what I was going to do!!!  I even had the card made before I went to work!  Course, waking up at 5 am helped.

The little scalloped squares are popped up and punched out of some patterned paper.  Actually, now that I think about it, it is the reverse side of the teal paper.  How cool is that!!!  The ribbon is tied with string.  It won’t fit in a normal envelope, so I think I will have to put it in a 5 x 7 envelope or it will have to be given envelope-less.  I found these cork letters quite a while ago in the clearance bin at Michaels.  Can’t believe I waited so long to use them.  Don’t you think they are sweet?

I hope everyone has a super Friday!!!  Only two more days of Sketchfest… I don’t think that is enough!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
