A {Hairy Scary} Sketch For You To Try

Well, I got my hair cut yesterday--finally! I let it get just a bit out of hand, as in it's been about five months since I had a haircut. When that happens, I tend to put it up in a pony tail every day just to get it out of my face. Then I have really frizzy little baby hairs that halo around my face and it's never quite long enough in the back, so it always falls out on the bottom. To me, I think it always looks like I've just ran a couple of miles in the humidity. So pretty! I so wish I could pull off the super smooth pony tail that's actually a fashion statement. My hair is really thick (which I do love), so I don't think that will ever be a reality. Did ya'll know I have a gray streak in my hair and it started coming in when I was about 22? Right up at the top in the front. Twenty years later, I've decided to embrace it rather than fight it anymore. I really like the fact that Stacy London wears her's so proudly and I've decided I will do the same for the time being (As soon as these highlights grow out)! I'll upload a new picture soon, so ya'll can see me in all my gray glory!

Anyway, it's time for Jen's Sketch For You To Try. Again, I went for a simple look to this sketch (maybe because it was super late when I started making it? You'll never know.). I just came across these stamps from Inkadinkado the other day and had forgotten that I had them. When I saw this little guy, I knew I had to stamp him out! I digressed a little from the sketch, as I don't have a "real" embellishment where the star is, but the knot of the ribbon is making up for it, just a bit moved over.

So we have another little girl's birthday party to go to today. It's at "Sweet & Sassy" in the mall. Lindsie is so excited and is going to get all dolled up and I'll be taking Audrie to get some Italian Ice Cream...YUM! Hopefully no one will ask me if I'm her grandma! My highlights are still blonde, you know, so I can't look that old!

Check out my SFYTT sister's sweet and sassy creations too. We hope ya'll will play along! That's why we do this--to inspire YOU! Now go get busy!:

SUSIE Q-TIP: Use your kid's craft supplies for your card, like the googly eye seen here. Go ahead and claim the new glitter that comes with Tooth Fairy Barbie for your stash. It's justified. Think of the clean-up this will save you after your precious angel accidently dumps it into her brother's lego bucket. So worth it and I don't even have boys.

Stamps: Ghouls and Goblins (Inkadinkado)
Paper: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Vintage Cream (PTI), Martha Stewart
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Flower Die, Cuttlebug, Paper Piercer/Mat Pack, Black Square Brads, Buttons, Black Twine, Copic Markers, Googlie Eye, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Dots, Jody Boosters


  1. I understand the gray. I didn't get the neat streak that you and Stacy have. Nooooo. I start turning gray at 17 and it's all over gray. At first I pulled out the gray hairs because there was only 1 or 2. Then I began coloring at about 25 because it was salt and pepper. I eventually went blond at about 6 years ago because it was much easier than trying to keep up with the coloring. I still think of myself as a brunette even though my hair is very light blond. The people I work with now only know me as blond and are very confused when I make reference to myself as a brunette. Oh well.

  2. Too funny...I have that same gray streak starting in my twenties as well! I on the other hand am not embracing it and dye my hair...but as my roots begin to show, I am now seeing that the gray is more than just in that one spot...too scared to see what my hair really looks like anymore! Love the card as usual!

  3. Adorable, Susan! Love your take on the sketch!

  4. This is too cute and I LOVE your Susie-Q tip! LOL!! Makes me wish I had girls!

  5. What a fun card - just love that little fella and how you've used the accents! Look forward to seeing your "grey" stage - I'm also getting more and more coming through and wondering whether I want to colour or not - my husband would rather I saved the money, but then again I know he also wants me to look very young too! Men...

  6. Very cute card! I love your lil' ghost! :) TFS

  7. This is so cute! I just found your blog and I love all your work!
