MY TAKE ON MY OWN SKETCH!

Hi all! Okay, so I got to stamp a little bit last night - whoohoo! And, today is my son's graduation from eighth grade - double whoohoo!!! We are all going to the ceremony this morning and then Tyler gets the rest of the day off. The weird thing is that he goes to school tomorrow for the eighth grade party which is a pool party and barbecue at the racquet club here in town - you would think that would be before they graduate....right??? Anyhoo, he is done and will be officially in high school *sniff*. So, before I cry all over myself, let me share the card I made for my own sketch - teehee! I was feeling pretty bad about not having a sketch card to show you, so I am relieved that I had time to get one done! I mean, here I had to sponsor the sketch and did not even have a card - sheesh! But, not to worry, I promise not to fall down on the job again - LOL! I decided to use the Enjoy Every Moment stamp set because I just love the sentiment behind the phrases. That is my goal, to enjoy each and every moment that I can! I also used some of my SAB rub-ons because they matched so well with what I was doing. And, I used a lot of hardware on this card; for some reason I am really into the small eyelets right now so I am going with it! I mean, I DID buy millions of them, the least I could do is use them *wink*. I will leave you with the recipe. And, don't forget to link your own take on the sketch on the post at the top of my blog (and only there please so I can keep track) and enter for some blog candy! Toodles!
