Hang In There Sketch Challenge

Good afternoon! Late again, but this time I have a good reason. Hubby and I went out this morning to a small town about 30 minutes away to see a hot air balloon gathering/competition. It was sooooooooo cool! There were probably about 75 - 100 balloons there and they had a little competition where they had 3 events. One of the events was to drop a beanbag type thing as close to this 'ring' that was about, oh I don't know 30 or 40 feet in diameter, as they could. Well many of these balloons were flying right over our heads. It was way cool! My hubby is designing a website for his photographs and when he gets those posted on it, I will link it to my blog. I'll let you know when.

On to today's card. I made this card for Jen's Sketch for you to Try: Here is a picture of the sketch:

Jen del Muro posts these sketches pretty often and I love doing them. Sara (my daughter) used Jen's most current sketch to make a card yesterday. I'll post that one tomorrow. If you haven't tried them, here is Jen's blog:

Now to the details: I wanted to use my new Bella stamps, so I did :) Both the image and the sentiment are from Stamping Bella. The papers are from My Mind's Eye, the flowers are from Imaginisce, the flower center brad is from SEI, the ribbon and the polka dotted brads are from Hobby Lobby. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and then added some Spica glitter pen. I used scalloped scissors to cut the decorative edge around the image. That's it, fun card to make and it all started with the sketch :)

Our quote for the day: "We become what we think about all day long." — Ralph Waldo Emerson

(That doesn't mean I'm going to become a stamp does it? :)
