Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  I'm finally here to post today's entry.  Last night was a very busy night for me so I didn't get my card done until late and I was too tired to set up the blog post.

This week's card is using the new set by Lindsay called Crafty Tools & Puns set and I did this card with my sister in mind.  She just recently took up knitting so this was perfect for her!


I love the sentiment!  This is mine... sort of.  I found a quote on Quote Garden that says If I stitch fast enough, does it count as aerobic exercise?  The author is unknown.  So I changed the word to knit and used a font called Rita that if you look up close, the letters look fuzzy like yarn.  I followed a sketch from Sketch Girl challenge blog.  This was a really easy sketch which helped get this card together relatively quickly.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Paper:  We R Memory Keepers - Hubcaps
Copics:  B95, B97, E29, E57, G02, W-3, YR16
Prismacolor:  Cream, Carmine Red
Tools:  SU! corner rounder, 5/8", 3/4" & 7/8" circle punches

Please be sure to visit Lindsay for this week's freebie and then hop along to visit all the members of the Design Team - they have awesome projects to share with you!  Thank you stopping by!

Adorable!!! Fun colors and the balls of yarn for the circles are perfect! I am personally on the stamping exercise/diet plan...if we stamp and color fast enough it really does count as exercise and we are too busy to eat (so long as you do not count the chocolate in my stash as food).
Thanks for playing along with Sketch Girl!!!
