Oh my! Lightning is going to strike me....not only 2 posts in one day, but I am playing in 2 sketch challenges!!! That's a huge honkin deal for me:) My blogger friends who post daily, I truly envy you and your stamina:):) This is soo fun, and sooo time consuming!:):) I was waiting for my little one to go down for his nap, and then began photographing like the papparazzi:):)LOL, and typing as fast as I can to get this done before he wakes up! So without further ado, here is the sketch, from http://iheart2stamp.com/ and here is my take:

I LOVE, LOVE all thing s vintage, and have a hard time doing anything else! So I just embraced it. This sentiment is special to me, we have to believe in ourselves and our abilites, and just go with it! These background stamps are from Ellen Hutson, I just got them and can't for the life of me remember their names...one is vintage text, I think, and the other is art nouveau, I don't know.....That's the only bad thing about unmounted stamps that don't come with a labeled index card. Anyhoo, back to the deets:) The main sentiment is a old rub-on from my stash, that I enhanced with my copics, the flower and leaves are Prima, the bottom panel uses part of a masked stencil image. (I did all that work, and you can't even tell:) The stencil is from Tim Holtz, and I created the masking with Shimmer Spritz. I even used Shimmerz paint "Angel Wings" to go over the rub-on to give it some glitz, (darn, it doesn't show up in the pic). The ruffled ribbon is from my stash, and it's sewn down with one of my favorite stitches. The pearl was bright white, (a little too bright), so I used my copic marker, and blender pen to tone it down and antique it! Thank you so much for stopping by:)

And to all my fellow Edward fans...... 2 MORE DAYS!!! WAHOOOOOOOO:):)

My daughter and I have tickets for the 12:25 showing on THURSDAY!!! Yippeee:):):)


  1. What a STRIKING card! So many beautiful details!!

    ....and I think a lot of us can relate to photograhing and typing as fast as our little fingers can fly to git r' done before the kiddos wake up. Mine doesn't nap anymore, but I remember that all too well! :)
