Wanna Sketch no. 8

Oh boy, oh boy… the entries for Wanna Sketch no. 7 were amazing!!!  It was so hard to select just a few to highlight.  I almost went random.  Ha.  But here we go….



Just look at this darling card!!!  I love the little scallops at the bottom of the tag, the color combo is fresh and sweet.  And who doesn’t love a talk bubble?  Absolutely lovely Tracy!


Nautical is so trendy right now and Amy’s take is spot on.  Love the navy chevron background and the layered stamps on the wood tag.  Seriously… a wood tag?  How awesome is that?


Kim totally rocked my socks with this card!!!  How absolutely adorable is that owl???  And I love how she used the birdcage as the tag portion of the sketch.  Way to think outside the box, girl!  I just can’t express how perfect his card is, I just love it.

Ack, I could go on and on.  I highlight some of my faves while the challenge is going happening on Facebook.  Come like my page for updates.




There is just something about this card that I love.  I can’t really pinpoint what it is, but it might be the colors, the simplicity or even that sweet little heart.  Not sure exactly, but I do adore it.  It makes my heart happy.

I started out with the circles and offset the stripes in the center.  I wanted to keep the two colors separate and I love how it turned out.  I was worries that the circles wouldn’t line up perfectly, but it isn’t noticeable.   I stamped and trimmed out the anchor by hand (there is a die to help you out, I need to get that!), popped it up and added the heart as well.  Last, the perfect sentiment for my hubby.  He does keep me from going adrift sometimes.

Are you ready to take this sketch on???  The linky will stay open until Friday, September 13, 2013 {11:55pm PT}.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
