Day 20 , Sketch 20 & Another Way to Win!

Good Morning! AND Yippeee! It's Friday AND Day 20! Can you believe I've been doing this for 20 days already? If you want time to fly, all you have to do is undertake a big project like this and zoom it's gone!
First off, I want to say thank you for your sweet and kind comments yesterday to me for my back. I hope I wasn't too whiny in my post yesterday. Chronic pain is the pits. A lot of you understood as you either have pain yourself or know someone who does. It seems to me that in our FAST society today, we tend to tolerate things to a point and them move on. We who have chronic pain feel like our pain should have left a long time ago and we sometimes feel like our friends and family are feeling the same thing. So, if I could just say one thing today it would be to have patience with those who have chronic pain. It can be depressing, for sure! That's all... I'll move on. {wink}
Yesterday, I did something way different than I have done so far in my challenge. I asked if I could "borrow" a sketch. I completely fell in love with Joslyn's blog yesterday when I discovered it. So, I emailed her and asked if I could borrow her card sketch from yesterday. And she agreed!! So, I sketched her adorable card. Another easy peasy sketch, friends!
THEN, I noticed that Tracy was having a little challenge of her own going on for her birthday. Who am I to not attend someone else's birthday blogabration? Apparently, Tracy loves all things Disney or Hawaiian. At first, I was going to make a Hawaiian card, but then I remembered the paint chips I had discovered at Home Depot with Mickey's silhouette! Ooohh... I couldn't wait to play with those!
Again, NO stamping on my card except for the Sanded background. I found the quote on the web and printed it out on my computer (forgot what font, sorry).
Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Sanded
Ink~ Green Galore
Paper~ Green Galore, Basic Black, Whisper White, DP from Paper Studio and SU
Accessories~ ribbon from SU and ?, computer generated quote, CM circle cutter, SU ticket corner punch
And today I add 12 Wire and Bead Items to the loot. (Well, these items worked together in my head!)
Included are a Wire Kit which has a spool of purple wire and 3 sizes of dowels for curling the wire (I made these when I was a demonstrator to give to my customers); a tube of multi-colored beads; 2 wine charms; a BIG paperclip; and 7 spiral clips.
AND now for my big announcement. I've been hinting from the beginning that there would be ONE more way you could get your name in the hat for the BIG box of goodies besides making cards using the sketches. Do you want to know what it is? The other way is to submit a SKETCH! Use your favorite printing program or PAINT on your computer and send me up to 3 sketches you've generated yourself. I will go through the sketches and pick my top 3. Those 3 winners will get a special blog surprise package from me. EVERYONE who plays will get their name into the draw for the big treasure... up to 3 times, once for each sketch. By submitting your sketch you are allowing me to use it on my blog as I will be using those 3 favorite sketches as three of my last few sketches in the Angelosity birthday countdown! Make sense? Time is limited though. You have until Thursday November 1st to send me your sketches. Please email them to me at angel2stamp @ yahoo dot com. Please send your sketch and not just a picture of a card. IF you want to send the sketch AND a picture of a card made with the sketch, that is fine. Please include your blog name or email address on your sketch.
HAVE FUN!!
I'm off to the races....
Angel

I love the Disney card! How cute!
I know your battle with contant pain. I have Lyme's Disease so I have good days and terrible days... I try to enjoy the good days as much as possible so that when the bad days come I can remember that there ARE good days ahead! Luckily, mine isn't a constant day struggle and I pray it never will be, but I have been through some nightmares before I was diagnosed!
I got organized this morning and already have a card to post! That leaves more time to make more cards this afternoon!!!

SWEET card! Thanks for the extra way to win. I have better odds of designing 3 sketches than finishing all my cards. Although, I am trying!

Gina Wrona said...

Wow, how awesome is that? Too cool! Thanks for sharing today.

I'm loving all your daily sketches and hope to get around to making some cards -- some day. It's beyond me how you can find time to do sketches, make cards, keep a blog, deal with chronic pain, do family stuff and probably tend to emergencies as well. You're an inspiration in more ways than one.
