One Sketch, Two Interpretations

Hi All, Happy Tuesday!

Hope your day is off to a great start! My son is back at school, the house is some what clean, the laundry is done, and my daughter and I are playing together. Things are getting back to normal. I loved having my son home from school, but the out of whack routine was getting the best of me. Now that things are a bit more on track, I had a few minutes to do some stamping this morning too.

While blog hopping earlier I saw a great sketch on Mojo Monday and thought it would make the perfect spring board to get me started. I actually used it to make two very different cards. And the sketch is interpreted in different ways with each card.

On this card, I used the ribbon as a layer and increased the size of the layout to accommodate the image. I received this sweet Whiff of Joy image from Michele, thanks hun! I love her! She was fun to color too. And I of course colored her with Copics. The papers are BasicGrey and SU!. I embellished with felt flowers, brads, and sticky gems. I think I might have gone a little sticky gem crazy, but you can never have too much bling right! :)

This second card uses the stamp set Thoughts and Prayers from SU!, it's a new set in the current catalog. I used some paper I got on a recent shopping trip, not sure who makes it though. The cardstock is Riding Hood Red from SU! and I added some Moss Taffeta ribbon. It's a very simple card, different from what I usually make.

OK then, I'm off to make lunch. Thanks for the sweet comments about the new look of my blog. I just wanted to toot Debs horn a bit as she did a fantastic job! My favorite part is the blinking froggie!

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! Happy Stamping! :)
