A {Hola, Como Esta} Sketch For You To Try

Well, we had a really fun evening last night. Just hung out together as a family. We ordered a pizza, rented some movies from the RedBox (really cool because they are just a dollar), went for a walk and then came back in to watch Old Dogs (not so good) and New Moon (I got soo sweepy so we decided to watch it tonight--don't tell me how it ends!). I think I loved our walk the most. There are no houses behind ours, just a big park with a wide sidewalk all the way around it. The girls love it and always run ahead of us slow folks. But it gives Eric and I a little time to ourselves while entertaining them at the same time (ya'll should try it). Here lately we have had some really good talks as we have been hashing out life in general and what's to come in the next few weeks. We are excited to get things underway next week and find a semi-normal routine in it all. He and I have always loved our time together, but it seems like since his cancer diagnosis, we've become attached at the hip! It's a silver lining.

Anyway, enough of "clouds and bunnies" and onto my card for today's Sketch For You to Try from our one and only Jen del Muro. I am more often than not caught saying "Hola" instead of hello, just because I think it's fun. So when I saw this soon to be released set (April 13th), Hola Tequila from The Cat's Pajamas, I squealed to finally have a stamp that said the same thing! I added the penguin mariachi band with it, changing the circle to an oval, and used a little creative license with the orange panel, making it sort of a Mexican pancho thingy with the fringe. This set and ALL four other ones coming ya'll's way next week are so FUN! We'll be having a blog hop on TCP Tuesday (yes, I'll be on time for this one) to give ya'll some more previews of the stamp sets. And yes, it WILL be "clouds and bunnies" all over again!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I had to make this card an odd size to accomodate the image and all the "stuff" on it. I hereby give ya'll permission to do the same.

Well, I tried to write "please play along in our SFYTT sketch this week and upload your card to Jen's slide over on her blog for a your shot at being next month's guest designer" in Spanish, but it didn't quite come out the way I'd planned. All I could come up with was "Yo quiero Taco Bell." Check out las hermanas de SFYTT and play along!:
