TAMARA's SKETCH CHALLENGE!

Hi all!! I can't believe it is already Thursday - time sure does fly when you have swaps to do - LOL! But, today is time for Sketch Challenge 54 over at Tamara's! I love this one because it is a circle shaped card, and I just love those! I decided to use my Carousel notes for this one because they were perfect for this. And, I did not use one stamp - can you believe it???!!! I actually made this card using all Stampin' Up! rub-ons and I really like the way it turned out! And, I did use my Jumbo Eyelets as the spine to hold my Carousel Notes together as well, gotta love 'em! The ribbon is Certainly Celery. The center of the flower is a build-a-brad with yep, a rub-on in the center! Cool, huh?! The only thing not SU! are my little pearl accents, but I love them so I added them as well! So, make sure you head over to Tamara's site and check out what the rest of the gals on the DT did, I guarantee you won't be disappointed! And, if you do the sketch, make sure you upload it to the site so we can all come over to your blog and take a look! This is a quickie post - I have to drive to Sacramento (two hour drive) today for some VA military health appointments (someday they will all be done!) so I will be gone all day without getting to do my blog surfing!! So, I will see you all tomorrow!!

Hey, Alex! Wow! You have been busy! I love all the projects you've come up with, especially the sock monkey card and the swap card you posted yesterday. This card is a beautiful take on Tamara's sketch. You are so amazingly talented! I'm hoping to get some stamping done this weekend - I'm going into withdrawal! LOL!
