It's Monday!




It's Monday, so that means a card for 2 Sketches 4 You. I knew right away what I wanted to do with the sketch this week. I've had these little tool charms forever, and love how they turned out with this card. The patterned paper is the Cosmo Cricket Twist and Shout collection. I tried a little trick with the Dad title. On the patterned paper that has circles, I used my stylus tool to trace around the circles. I just put the paper on my mouse pad, and made sure not to press too hard with the stylus tool so I wouldn't rip through the paper. I turned it over and rubbed my old fluid chalk pad lightly across the top. It made the circles I embossed stand out. It turned out quite well.


I decided to post a picture of my cute hubby and sweet baby Casey.
One more thing. I designed my sisters blog for one of her dance competitions. Check it out HERE. Tell me what you think of it.
