I have so much to show and tell today! First, we are surviving without Daughter #2 at home. She calls enough that we keep in touch several times a day. So for all you wondering, my house is still clean and the laundry room isn’t piled to the rafters yet.

Second, Lizzie Anne Designs is having a Sneak Peek of new sets schedule for release on September 10. There will be 8 new Little Bits™ stamp sets and 8 new Simply Singles™ released and you can get a Sneak Peek of 4 new sets every day for 4 days. You can check it out here.

Speaking of Lizzie Anne, I started working on a card last night to send to Daughter #2, since I feel she’s gonna need some mail once a week or so – gotta let her know we miss her a little! Right before she left I received some new BasicGrey papers and fibers from Jacksonbelle Embellishments and Mallory went nuts over the Obscure pad. So, since I hadn’t made a card with it yet, I thought my first should be to her. This card is 5 ½ x 5 ½ and has a hinged front. Holes were punched along the hinge and the fibers tied off to close that part of the card. All the designer papers were sewn to the layers on my handy-dandy sewing machine.

The third thing today, is that it is Sketch Challenge Day on Splitcoast. We all know how Roxie gets after me if I miss the sketch challenge – don’t care to have her coming after me with all those wet noodles today! Of course, I was still up last night when she posted, but forgot to look – duh! Didn’t sleep well and was up and at ‘em at 4:30 or so this morning, so I’ve had a little time to stamp this morning. Heck I even read the morning paper this morning – haven’t done that in months!

Anyhoo, here’s my card for the Sketch Challenge today. All the edges of the SU Outlaw Designer Paper were sponged with Tim Holtz Ranger Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and the stamping of the medallion was done with a combination of the Corduroy Distress Ink and Dried Marigold Distress Ink. Did just a little distressing with scissors and then sponged those edges too. This is a fun sketch and one I think I’ll try again!
