I enjoy a good sketch challenge so much, so I was really glad to hear that the new Wednesday Stamp Club challenges with My Favorite Things were all going to be sketches for the coming year! Despite my best intentions, I never got around to playing with the first one last week, but I definitely made time this week! These ala' modes stamps from MFT are such a favorite of mine, so it was a no-brainer to use this image on my card.
The designer papers I used on this are some old Girl Friday from Cosmo Cricket, along with Stampin' Up! cardstocks. The sketch especially begged for the use of my Sentiment Flag die from Lil' Inker Designs, too. The only sentiment in this ala' mode set that would fit on the flag was the "Miss You a Latte" but I didn't want to make a card that said that. So I used the word "Thanks" from the Thanks a Bunch stamp set, and then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to add "a Latte" below. I LOVE how that turned out! :) I've been looking at some of the blogs from some stamping idols lately and trying to make note of new ideas that I either don't try or forget to try. One thing I noticed from Leigh O'Brien was that she's never afraid to cover up part of her image with a sentiment, as on this cute card. So I decided to be brave and cover up the legs here with my sentiment flag and button. What do you think? I'd love to know!
Thanks SO much for stopping by! I appreciate the new followers that have been showing up lately and new subscribers! I smile from ear-to-ear everytime I see a new face! :) Thanks for making my day!
