Sassy Cheryl Sketch Challenge

I hope you are having a great weekend. Mine has had a great mix of relaxation, cooking, crafting and visiting with friends. I have a card to share with you that I made for the challenge on the Sassy Cheryl blog. This week is a sketch challenge. I think more than any other type of challenge, I like sketches the best. I tend to get stuck in a rut with my layouts so and I had fun with this one. I used an image from Sassy Cheryl, and colored it with Copics. The papers are DCWV and the brads are from Jo-Ann's.

I mentioned that I would show how I ended up packaging my notecard set that I was giving to my friend for her birthday. I have two bins of things I can alter that would make great gifts but I have been doing so much rearranging around the house that they have gotten moved and I couldn't get to them so I ended up tying a bow with some pretty satin ribbon and putting them in the gift bag. She really liked the notecard set and was excited to see the variety, especially when she realized they were patterned after quilt blocks.

Kip and I are celebrating the return of Daylight Savings time by pulling out the grill.

Love your card Gina. As always, superb coloring and the image is fantastic. Great mix of papers and design.

The packaging is elegant simplicity at its best. I have always loved the look of using just gorgeous ribbon, tied into a bow, to decorate my packaging.
