Day 25~Sketch 25 (Your Sketches Wanted!)

Good morning! It looks like Dawn, Tracy, Jayme and Cathy each got an extra entry for being early birds today! I'm slipping! Good thing we only have one week until my birthday! I always looked forward to Halloween as a kid because I knew my birthday was only one week later!! Of course, that meant I sometimes handed out my Halloween candy as my birthday treats, but not if I was able to eat it first! Hubby was not so lucky. His birthday is the day after Halloween so he gave away most of his candy to his class every year. Poor guy! Anyone else out there know what we're talking about?
Anyway, you've already seen today's sketch.
Nothing difficult about it.
I changed it up a bit for hubby's card.

But here is the card for the basket of cards. You like?
Card Recipe~
Stamps: Stamp of Authenticity, Birthday Greetings, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Sanded

Ink: Choc Chip, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky
Paper:Choc Chip, Blue Bayou, Whisper White, Soft Sky, Kraft, DP by My Mind's Eye
Accessories: MM Woven Labels, Screw head Brads, SU Round Tab Punch, Stapler, SU 3/4" Circle & 1 1/4 in circle punch, pop dot (under small circle), ivory Burlap Ribbon (Berwick)

Today I add 7 pens to the mother load. A set of small gel pens and 2 RSVP pens. I've added a small piece of DP inside the RSVP pens, but you can change that out. The pens are brand new.
What I love to do is personalize these pens and it's SO easy to do. Simply print the name out that you want to have inside and cut it out (I use these measurements: 1" x 3 1/4"). Stamp a background over in a light color, take the ink barrel out of the pen and curl the paper around it and slip inside. Give with a journal and you've got a great gift!

Just a is the last day to turn in your sketches for up to 3 extra chances at the birthday basket! Every sketch entry (up to 3 per person) gets an extra entry to the basket. AND I will choose 3 winners to receive a small gift from me. I've taken a picture of one of the gifts! See this post for more details.

It's a mini organizer full of buttons! I plan on decorating it as well, but haven't gotten to it yet!
I've included Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, Green and White/Clear. buttons If you'd rather have another color I can oblige!! This is one of the prizes. I will have 2 more to give away. Get your sketches to me today! Check out the comments in

Ooo, love your card for hubby! :)

And I'm fixing to whip up some sketches. :)

Cathy said...

I have to comment again and say I LOVE THIS CARD! I always struggle creating masculine cards and your sample is excellent. I forgot the sketch deadline is today. Guess what I'll be doing on my lunch break. :o)

Great card sketch. And your hubby's lucky to get such a great birthday card! I have to say THANKS for the tip on the RSVP pens. I use them at work and will decorate some for co-workers for Christmas. They are always trying to dip into my stash of these great pens! I'll be back later with my card...

I love the color combo for the "he-man" card. I'm sure he loved it. I wish I were organized enough to be in the big draw. Fabulous!!

Peggy said...

I love the screw head brads! Where do you get those? Oh, and I love your personalized pens:) I am still treasuring the ones from my wedding, dreading the day they run out of ink! I like your new header! But Brandon might be jealous that you have Faith's name. He is very jealous these days! Hehe:)

Patti Gingrich said...

No time to stamp today, but I love your card! What a great masculine design! Happy Birthday to your hubby!

I am sitting here feeling sheepish 'cause my daughters 6th birthday is Nov 13... and last year I thought I was sooooo clever to give her halloween candy to the birthday guests in their little treat bags! Geeze. Guess I won't be doing that again.... :)

Here is a card I made for sketch #16
Thanks for all your great sketches!

Michelle said...

All of my sketches are hand drawn on 12x12 quilters graph paper. someday I'll try it on the computer :)

Linda SS said...

Another cute card & sketch. This would be a great masculine card or for the boss card. I wish I would have had time this month to use your sketches & make some cards. Too many swaps to get out and halloween cards to make:(

Tricia said...

I finished Day 25!! :)

See you tomorrow! :)

Brenmarie said...

Wow Angel another great card. I'll be busy come next week. If the little girl I'm babysitting this week wouldn't keep getting into my card making supplies then I'd make cards all day!

cmc mom in oh- Laura said...

Ok, tomorrow I don't work, so hopefully I can make more cards. I am loving these simpler ones.

It's a simple sketch but I love it. There's a lot you can do with it. I love what you did with your card! The colors are fabulous and love how you added the label.

Here is my card for this sketch:

It's the 3rd card.
