Blogger's Challenge Sketch!

Happy Friday! It is an especially happy one here because as of about four o'clock this afternoon, Spring Vacation has started around here!!! Lots of organization is going to happen in the Gajewski house over the next nine days, and I couldn't be happier! (I know it may sound a little weird, but I DO like to clean and organize. It's my thing. Just go with it. It truly makes me happy...lol!)

This week's Blogger's Challenge is a fabulous sketch from the very lovely, Lisa Somerville! I really loved this one because it's just a wonderful way to add patterned paper to your design if you want to. In this case, I used Lavender Rosebuds from Paper Pizazz. The colors worked perfectly with Stampin' Up's Lavender Lace and Cool Caribbean. My image is another one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps. It is called Story Time and I colored it up with my Copic markers (B0000, B21, B23, BG11, BG15, C0, C1, E000, E01, E29, E35, E51, E57, G24, G82, R20, R81, R83, R85, V12, V17, Y21, and Y32). Very simple card, but I already know who it will be perfect for.

At the moment, I'm still waiting for the cable guy to come and fix our television...ugh! With the extra time on my hands, I'm off to check out what the other Ladies have come up with for this sketch. You can find their blogs, if you click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right sidebar. Thanks a bunch for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your evening...Toodles! :D

Kim,
This is a really cute card. The colors are sweet and the paper piercing is a nice added touch.

Enjoy the week. I'm crazy like you and love to organize, although I often have great intentions at the start of some time off and not too much accomplished at the end. I hope you have some real accomplishments by Saturday.
