August Sketch for You to Try and a GIVEAWAY!

Well, summer vacation is almost over.  Who's made it through the season without a summer cold?  ME!!  I rarely get sick, but when I do, I pull out all the stops and just go for it.  Knock on wood, our whole family has managed to steer clear of any bugs going around.  However, I have lots of friends whose kids have been sick, or been sick themselves and that's just no fun during summer vacay.  So my sample for August's SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI is a little something to try and cheer up those bitten by the "bugs".

Here's a look at the sketch.  I went with a "giftie" rather than a regular card because I wanted to show y'all how a card sketch can still work with an "ABC" project.

I used the TAGGED TOTE as my base, and the rounded tag included features the two large background pieces in the sketch.  I then used the POSTED Confetti Cuts to create the cute little clip-up stand, and decorated it with the clouds and rainbow from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts and the flag banner from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts has the cute stamped sentiment from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER stamp set.  I loved the look of the rainbow sort of separated, so I simply glued the ends to the clouds to get this look. Here's hoping I don't have to fill this with cough drops and Kleenex for anyone soon!

Head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today!  There just might be some other GIVEAWAYS, too!

Ok, GIVEAWAY TIME for me!!!  Now if y'all really are feeling under the weather, this should be just what the doctor ordered!  I'm giving every commenter on this post a chance to win a GOD IS GOOD stamp set. You have until Thursday, August 20th to leave a comment, then I'll draw for a winner, and Jen will get it sent to YOU!!
