It's Merry Monday time again! This week I'm going for the gold.
Here's this week's sketch. It amazes me that Lesley can come up with a different sketch each week! She is amazing!
I've got to admit that this sketch really challenged me. First I saw 3 trees. Do you see them when you turn the sketch over?
I couldn't make that work. But by adding some trees I was able to make a great Father's Day card for DH.
I hadn't used my Ornament Keepsake set in quite a while. (Even though they're not in the new catalog, the stamps and the dies are still available.) So I pulled out my gold embossing powder and went to work.
When I saw the fantastic cards the rest of the design team did, I wondered why I didn't just pull out some DSP? Oh, well, you know me. DSP is to hoard and not to use. Oh, it's not?
Pixie's Crafty Workshop is looking for cards made with snippets and I was able to use quite a few snippets on this so I'm going to skip over to the playground. Have I ever mentioned that Di has some lovely prizes each week? Well she does and I am the happy (oh so happy) winner if Ryn's Water Droplet stamp that I mentioned 3 or 4 times last week. I am so excited, Di and can't wait to stamp with them.
