Saturday, April 7, 2012

Well, Saturday is finally here!  It's been the longest week ever here in Lilesland, I guess because I went with Audrie's class to the Fort Worth Zoo on Thursday and then they were out of school yesterday for Good Friday.  Made it feel like every day was Friday, and so it just dragged on and on.  Luckily I squeezed a little stamping time in there so I have a card to show ya'll today for the new April Sketch For You To Try from Jen!

Jessica Knutsen, owner of There She Goes Stamps has generously offered to be this month's sponsor.  If you've never bought stamps from "there" before, you really should "go" and check them out!

First off, here's a look at this month's sketch.

For my card, I chose the cute set, Numbered Days.  I just loved what a few of the There She Goes design team did with it, so I knew I had to get my hands on it!  I went with some sweet colors (if you'll remember I like yellow), and made a birthday card with our daughter, Lindsie in mind (hopefully I'll remember I made it, as her birthday's not 'til November!).  I added some much needed bling from Michael's and a little swarovski crystal to the birthday hat (which is a cute separate stamp!).

Ok, we have a little news to share about our Sketch For You to Try team:
Iwona is stepping down to persue other crafty adventures (I'm not sure if she's let that cat out of the bag or not, so check her blog, but it's GREAT news for her!).  We also have a fabulous Guest Designer this month--Dawn Barghorn!  She is so sweet and such a cutie!!  Watch out for her--she's gonna be a superstar!  Three cheers for her!!

So for more inspiration, check out the rest of the design teams creations here:

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Don't forget about all that bling ya'll bought.  It wants to come out and sparkle.

Ok, I'll have to write up the supply list later, I'm running late for work!


  1. Good tip for me re: that bling - it's sitting unloved in a drawer at the moment. I'll try to give you a reminder in Nov. re: Lindsie's CUTE birthday card, but you might also want to have a backup plan. You know me & my memory ain't what we used to be!!! Have a wonderful weekend, Sus - I love ya!

  2. This is such a fabulous card Susan!! I love it!!

  3. Oooo, I just love what you've done with the sketch and those number stamps! This is amazing!

  4. Yes! Don't forget to add bling or else you will have a little white box that is BRIMMING FULL and will have to try and organize it! LMAO LOVE the card Susie!!!! :)

  5. what a beautiful and fun card, Susie! loooove the colors and the fun patterns! sooo cute!

  6. I love what you created with the sketch and TSG stamps. Great color combo!!
