Mojo Monday Sketch #75

I am REALLY getting into these Sketch Challenges lately!! I like them so much better than the color challenges. I have enough Designer Paper to put the colors together, but the sketches give me that little push toward creating something original. And how can you not love all the layers on the Mojo Monday sketches?!? With this sketch, I wanted to create a card for a family in my Sunday School class who recently adopted a baby boy. Using a monochromatic color palette is outside my comfort zone, but the Bashful Blue patterned paper seemed perfect for a baby boy card, and I think the sketch really helped. The scripture is from my very favorite I Corinthians 13, the Love Chapter in the Bible, and is appropriate for any occasion. I added the little blue bug to make the card more boyish. It's early on Saturday morning, so if you're up and stopping by my blog, thank you!!! I will eat a Lemon Chalet Creme Girl Scout cookie in your honor . . . right . . . now!!!

Excellent card girlfriend! Oh, on my Friend tote, the bottom portion is patterened paper (Raspberry Fizz mix from PTI).

I picked up our girl scout cookies Thursday night and we've already eaten half a box of thin mints, a whole box of Samoas, a few from choc chip, dosidos and tagalongs. I've gorged on them and now will eat no more. It's out of my system! We're suppposed to be cookie boothing it today,'s raining pretty steadily, so I don't know.
