sketchfest friday!

holy moly, it's been one heck of a week, hasn't it? we CAARDVARKS have been busier than one-armed paperhangers trying to get round and see allllllll the gorgeous sketchfest cards! i'm slightly sad to say, for the first time EVER, i've been unable to keep up with commenting on every single card...well heck, there have been 100+ each day!...i've compromised by commenting on each card for every other sketch.

speaking of sketches, here's the one m'colleague and sketch-idol miss heidi devised for today:

i like it: it's bold, it's simple, it's linear, and i just happened to have three more little maya road leather flowers to pop into those little boxes. woohoo!

you can't really tell from the photo, but that making memories patterned paper with the letters on is shiny, and so is the black cardstock i've used for the mats. the tan paper has very subtle ridged lines, the thickers are made of spongy foam, and the kraft cardstock (which the divine stef got me at hobby lobby) is the REAL DEAL with lots of speckles and spots. it's your basic cavalcade of texture, really!!! :)

sadly, tomorrow is the last day of sketchfest, but i can tell you in confidence that the sketch is particular superb. so much so, in fact, that i've made *TWO* cards for it. hasta manana, darlings!!!


  1. I wondered if you were making 107 comments (or so...) EVERY day. I s'pose you would have to take a few hours off of work at a minimum (unless you type REALLY fast. At any rate, your thoughtful comments are always appreciated. You make me smile (and usually LOL too!)

    Love what you did with the sketch :)

  2. it sista...those thickers and flowers rock...happy friday!!

  3. Great card and obviously one that needs to be seen in person. I hate that it's so difficult to catch textures, shimmers, and shine with a camera or a scannner.

    Anyway, this is fab.


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
