Fairytales & A Sketch!!

Hiya Friends & Happy Tuesday! I'm not gonna lie to you today, but I am overworked & overstressed right now :o( I have so many projects to complete for deadlines & challenges that occur while I'm gone & so much of "life stuff" to do this week too. I have a dentist appt. tomorrow, getting haircuts for everyone, and all of my son's 5th grade graduation events (awards ceremony, "Amazing Race" themed party & nighttime graduation) and getting packed & finishing laundry all has to fit in my schedule too! And my laptop being down is really sucking the life outta me, and everything is taking twice as long to get done---sigh--I'm gonna need this vacation more than you could ever know. But I want to apologize to everyone for not stopping by blogs & leaving comments this week & being slow to answer emails---I will hopefully be back up & running real soon so don't think I forgot about any of you, cuz' I didn't!! And thanks to all the Mac users who emailed me--once we get back from our vacay I think a Macbook Pro is in my future! Hubby just might have a nervous breakdown with all the money we've spent since the beginning of the year on software, new camera, new video camera & now a new laptop--ugh!! NOT GOOD! Anywhoo, moving on--I'm not usually this dreary, LOL!

So today is Try It Out Tuesday #23 for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design and I challenged the DT to make a card using the above sketch I designed! If you 'd like to join in on the sketch, email me with your creation or link it here on this post or the store blog so we can see!!

I used this beautiful Victoria Case for SCACD stamp called "Dear Diary"--isn't she a doll? I prefer to think she's reading a wonderful tale of princesses & knights though, hee hee! I used some of my favorite Basic Grey "Sultry" dp (have to order more, used it all--gasp) because I love the colors & its so "fairy woodland" looking to me! I used diamond glaze on her eyes for shine & glittered up that book of hers! The sentiment is from Verve Stamps--perfect for this card me thinks!

This was also done for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog (yes, I'm late, but couldn't help it) which this week is how to color wood--make sure to join in on the challenge for some wonderful prizes from Unity Stamps! So for my tree stump I used E29, E25,E33,& E53.

Hope you like this little beauty & make sure and stop by the store blog "Follow Your Heart" to see the rest of the DT's interpretations of my sketch!

hugz & see ya tomorrow,
