This week, I am interviewing for two, maybe three jobs. Keep you fingers crossed, so I get an offer. Then I can afford this hobby. SO, needless to say, I have not been creating. We do have a My Sketch World sketch coming out on the 14th so I am sharing my sneak peek with you. OK, back to work on my presentation for tomorrow's interview. Happy Wednesday!

I may head north to the mountains for a few days, no computer there, so I might be MIA, again, for a short time. It is so hard to commit to the drive, because it takes so much money to buy the gas to make the trip. I am still in debates with myself, if you don't see any new post, then I guess I decided to splurge and go.
Before I go, I wanted to post my other 2S4Y card made from Laura's sketch. I pulled out the Bug for this one! It is kind of a Monet. In that you need to look at the card from a distance, not close up. My execution is a little sloppy. I was trying many new techniques. I learned from my mistakes, but did not start over after each flaw. What do they say about flaws adding character? Plus, my camera is taking horrible pictures. Really want a new camera, but it is close to the bottom of the list of wants and needs. Oh, well, you still get the picture. Hee, hee ;).
Card base: Joann's Paper Craft Essentials
CS: DCWV Neutrals
PP: American Crafts
Black and Red ribbon
Watercolor pencils, Dove Blender, and bling
Sentiment printed from computer
Now, all I have left is a birthday card for my dad!

I committed to creating and I followed through. I finished my first card using the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch by Kazan. If you notice in my bio info, I mentioned my niece and nephew are scheduled to arrive in September. We are excited about the twins. I really worry about what my nephew, the soon to be big brother, will do when they arrive. My brother liked me for about a day and then wanted to know when I was going back to the hospital. I was so cute, who could blame him.
So, I made this card for my brother for Father's Day. I was eager to ink up my Papertrey Ink stamps and using my new bottle of flock. So here is the recipe:
Images: Papertrey Ink Bitty Baby Blessings
PP: Daisy D's
CS: Papertrey Aqua Mist
Card base: Joann's Paper Essentials blank cards
Punches: Threading Water Fiskars punch, corner rounder
Misc buttons and bling
Don't you just love the flocked duck on the onesie?! So let me know what you think. I am off to see Sex and the City! Possibly, more creations tomorrow. Kazan said I have to make a card from both sketches. I'll try. Have a great day!

I know, I know. Has she dropped off the face of the earth? I know what you are thinking. At least I hope you have noticed I have been MIA for a week or so. A big cloud moved in and I was having a tough time finding the silver lining. Spent today with my nephew and magically the silver lining was so obvious. SO, tomorrow, I am going to create. I have a sketch for My Sketch World due soon and I am excited about a new sketch blog that one of my fellow MSW DT members, Kazan Clark, launched today, 2 Sketches 4 You. You should stop by and see the great sketches! Hope to have something to post tomorrow evening. Regardless, Happy Monday!
