Card Sketch #40

Thursday is card sketch day at the Sketches! {by Tamara} site. I LOVE the sketch this week! This is my card for Card Sketch #40. Remember . . . if you do the sketch, link it back to Tamara's site, and YOU could be her next guest designer! My very good blogging friend Dawn was Tamara's guest designer on Saturday, and she did an amazing job with her card! Be sure to check it out!


I used my Love, Elsie papers on this card. The card front, the stripes, the star, and the man and women are ALL from Love, Elsie. I used my Lisa B. KOTM foam stamps for the star, "you", "&", and "me". I love those Kits of the Month! The white around the paint stamped letters was done with my new Uni Ball Signo white pen. I'm very happy with the way this card turned out!

Well, my Princess is now all clean, and she's so fluffy, soft, and she smells good. She really does NOT like getting a bath, and it's so hard trying to stop her from pulling too hard on her choke chain collar. However, we both survived the ordeal, and I managed to stay pretty dry! Have a great Thursday, and thanks for stopping by!

Very cool Love, Elsie card! I love the little woman and man rubon. I saw some stamps at HL the other day with the man and woman and almost bought them but I controlled myself (maybe they'll go half off next week)! Take care.
