Blogger's Challenge #93: Sketch it!

OOOH! I liked this sketch! Plus, it inspired me to do a 6 by 3 card which I haven't done for awhile. I had other inspiration, too...I'll share that as I share my cards!



First, I was working on a thank you card for my last hostess (hi Leah!) I took out my Bella Bird DSP and worked on the colors from there. The ribbon has a rub-on from the Hostess Hand Drawn Bundle. Note to self...buy more rub-ons! What a great way to add a sentiment!



While I was working on my first card, my dear sister called to tell me she was a grandma again! (She's older than I am so no smart comments on my age!) Of course, you know that means it's guaranteed that I'm great...a GREAT AUNT again! Congrats to Jen and Jeremy and Big Brother Alex.



This card was inspired by Elijah Timothy, my new Great-Nephew! He was a big boy....10 lbs 6 oz and 23 inches long...practically a toddler!!! Congratulations to them!

Have a great weekend and use the link on my sidebar to see what the other players created!
