I hope y’all have had a good weekend.  My girls finally headed back to school this morning around 10:00.  I enjoyed the noise and all the commotion while they were here, but I’m also glad to be able to get back in my studio.

As I was reading through my daily blogs this morning, I noticed the CPS Sketch Challenge.  Something about the sketch caught my eye and I knew I had to give it a try.  So after I had read the Sunday paper, talked on the phone for a bit, and had all my coffee I headed down to the studio.

Instead of making a long card as the samples on CPS, I made mine 5.5″ x 3.75″.  I just noticed that the CPS Sketch is sponsored by Our Daily Bread this week.  I think I’m gonna have to make another using Our Daily Bread images.


I die cut, embossed and then stenciled the bottom border first.  Using the same paper, the background paper was sewn to the top portion.  The poppies were water colored with Ranger Distress Reinkers and the second was cut out and raised on foam tape.  As I was looking for ribbon to match, I found this scrap piece that I believe came from a box of candy.

Thanks for stopping by.  I’m gonna get ready for my Sunday night television shows . . . don’t ever want to miss Brothers and Sisters!
