July Sketch For You To Try

Well, I can't believe it's July already and time for another Sketch For You To Try from Jen. This month, we have a new sponsor, My Favorite Things, so ya'll know I was excited about that! Since resigning from the MFT design team due to my mom's stroke and the time I needed to free up to take care of her, I haven't had a chance to play with my MFT stuff!

This set, Just My Type came out just around the time I stepped down, but I have loved it and the concept of putting a sentiment on the "paper", since I first saw it! It's actually a stamp set/Die-namics set that comes together, but for some reason, I never got the die. (?) So I just cut the typewriter out by hand. The "click clack" is from another set that's kind of matchy-matchy called Own Your Story, and I just had to include it!

I think out of all the sentiments that come with the Just My Type set, I love this one the best and it is so fitting for the kind of week I've had! I got in trouble at the grocery store for doing a little "self-peeling off" of some coupons attached to some hamburger meat, an 18-wheeler decided he needed to merge into my lane without regard for my Expedition (how can you not see THE BEAST?) so I was almost smushed, and above all else, I had to cancel a hair appointment and the next available isn't until 3 weeks from now. My hair will be a BEAST by then!

Anyway, I'm working today at Scrapper's of course but then, I am off to meet up with the rest of my family at Camp Grady Spruce on Possum Kingdom Lake about
2 hours from here for a little fishing, grilling, an overnight stay in a cabin (it's air-conditioned) and fireworks over the lake. I can't wait! I'll be sure and share pictures next week! Happy Fourth of July ya'll!

Be sure and "shift" on over to the other SFYTT sisters' blogs to see what they've typed up and then play along with us. Debbie Carriere is our new Guest Designer of the month and she's terrific! Get all the details on how you can be next month's Guest Designer over on Jen's blog HERE.

We have a couple of typos to clear up:

1. Kelly is stepping down from the SFYTT team to make time for her family's new addition arriving soon.

2. Sony is finally crawling out from under all her schoolwork and has joined us this month. YAY!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Partially fan-fold a strip of paper as an embellishment on your card or project. Just make sure you cut your strip longer than needed, as the fan-folding will "use up" some length.
