Sketch Challenge - Card #3

I actually did manage to get some more stamping done this weekend, event amongst the plague-ridden in my household. I lost track of how many loads of laundry I did, and this next card was completed over several hours when I would take a few minutes to breathe clean air! For a while Bradley amused himself playing on PBSkids.org on my computer and I got some quality time on the other side of the craft room. I don't know if I'm going to make this 9-sketch goal, but I'm still going to try!

Before Chloe took her nap, she was having a great morning - and she helped me punch out the scallop squares. She LOVES punches and will play for a long time with scraps of paper and my punches. One time she spent over an hour playing - first she punched a ton of flowers with the SU! Trio Flower punch, and then she sorted them into piles. It was cute, and I use those flowers all the time! :)

So, here's my take on the sketch by Donna. Sorry it's leaning back - I was having some issues with my set-up when I took the pic last night.



Here is a close-up of Tilda - you can see the balloons better in this picture. In person you can see how much they shine with a LOT of Crystal Effects on them. :)



I'm still learning the whole watercolor paper/marker thing, so just ignore my coloring goofs. I'll get it eventually!!

Hopefully everyone will be feeling better tonight on the home front and I can play some more! I've got 6 cards to get done by Thursday - and I won't be able to stamp at all on Wednesday because of my grad class.

Well, I'm off for a fun day - have to get Bradley to day care, take my car to the shop and get a rental (from the accident), and head over to work. After missing Thursday and Friday last week I'm sure I have 100 unread emails and a pile on my desk to tackle.

Have a great day!!
