It’s sketch challenge day over at the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog! I really like this sketch – it gave me a chance to practice my ribbon-fork tying skills! LOL My five year old thought I was *nuts* with the serving fork. She was amazed, though I admit it doesn’t take that much to impress her – makes my job easy some days! 🙂
I have this adorable “Grow Extraordinary” set from Unity Stamp Co. Sadly, I don’t think it’s ever seen ink before! I have no idea why, other than I just organized my stamps and now it’s much, much easier to find (Scraponizer file folders, cut in half – you can fit 3 half folders plus 8.5×11″ stamp keys in one case!!!). I see myself using this one a lot… it’s the type of stamp I can see myself using and tucking a note of encouragement into my girls’ lunchboxes when they get older!
Anyhow, here’s the sketch:
And my card:

American Crafts ribbon
Stamp set – Unity Stamp Co
Colored with Bic Mark-its
I really like how this turned out! I wasn’t thinking and embossed the green DP, which doesn’t always work well, but it was fine as it’s a heavier weight. Oh, and here’s the inside with the sentiment:
Thanks for looking!
