Day 30 ~ Sketch 30

It's bittersweet, isn't it? We're almost there! Only 2 more days!

For today's sketch I chose this one from Carla at Moralia's Weblog as my second place winner. Carla has some amazing creations on her site. Be sure to check it out.
When I first saw this sketch I envisioned a snowman card with a big snowflake brad or eyelet as my embellishment. Was I surprised to find out that I am seriously lacking in the snowman department! I even considered a paper piecing template for my snowman and went in search of one..... it just wasn't to be.
So, I looked through all of my stamps with this sketch in mind. Nope.... nothing. But I loved this sketch and wanted to use it. Lastly I went through my box of "Elements". I found some Bellas I had received in the mail from other stampers. I chose this
Veggiebella as my central image because I instantly remembered a friend of mine who is certainly in need of some sunshine. She taught me how to garden and even tilled for me and helped me plant about 16 tomato plants a few years ago. What a sweet friend. Now she is going through one of my worst nightmares as her husband battles cancer. Yes, she needs a lift and this card will be perfect. Now, to get it sent!!! (Just to clarify, I made two of this card.... one will go to the winner of the cards and the other to my friend.)

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Veggiebella, Kindness jumbo wheel
Ink~ Black, So Saffron, Misc pads for watercoloring
Paper~ So Saffron, Rose Red, Whisper White, DP from SU Print Sampler
Accessories~ Blender Pens, ticket corner punch, White Souffle pen, Clear Stardust pen, punches- sun by Marvy, scalloped circle by Martha (Sponged edges), pop dots, computer generated sentiment

Only 2 days left til B- Day so I offer 2 adhesives. A roll of 1/8" Double-sided Tacky Tape and a Sakura Quickie Glue pen. Both are great adhesives!!
That's all for me for now! Only one more card to make for the last day!!
Have a good Monday, dear friends!

Very nice card! I love the dimension of the sun and the color combo. Thanks for sharing. I'm still trying to complete a few more cards before the end of this fabulous month-long celebration!

Gina Wrona said...

OMG! I so need that sticky tape! Can you give me the link where you ordered it? How does it compare to the one SU has?

Misplaced Texans said...

Yeah for Snowmen! I'm thinking snow here in NY, so lets see if it works! Here are my cards for Sketch #29 and Sketch #30. I don't want to see tomorrows because that means it will be over!!!

Ooh, ooh, I know I have a big snowflake brad to use in place of the sun, but hmmm, do I have a snowman type image? Off to the studio to search!
