Thinking of You

It's me again! It seems my trend with my blog is that I double post on Saturdays (one for me, one for MSB) and then post on Sunday... but by Wednesday I sort of dwindle. Anyway, here's the me!

I rarely get to participate in challenges anymore. I'm busy with my DT work for Corrosive Challenge and Modern Sugar - I'm not complaining, mind you, I love what I'm doing. But I rarely participate in a challenge just because I want to. This card is two-fold. I stumbled onto a blog called Crafts 4 Eternity and they are featuring this coolest sketch challenge! Also, Tami Mayberry posted a contest to win a Father's Day digi-stamp set. All you have to do is use one of her sets that she drew for Sweet-n-Sassy. The above image is Tami's!

This card features the great set from Sweet-n-Sassy, but the red oval in the background I stamped with Papertrey Ink's Polka dot set and embossed with white embossing powder. I have honestly forgotten how fun heat embossing is! And guess what, I'll bet you'll find a card posted later with the rest of the red card stock that I cut the oval from. Hollyanne swiped it!

I had great fun with this sketch and digi-stamp set.
