Sweet Sunday Sketch #124

I think I just missed the deadline for this sketch. Oops! This is last weekend's Sweet Sunday Sketch from over on Karen Giron's blog. I battled with this sketch for a few hours yesterday. I think ovals may be my new nemesis. Circles, I've mostly conquered with the help of nestabilities and some great stamps. But ovals? *sigh* I need some big stamps that involve coloring with copics to rest this little dilemma... At least, that's what I keep telling myself. ;)

The card features more of my new MME dp, a whole lot of green bling, and some cheery colors. This is definitely a bit out of my "color comfort zone." But it's fun! My white gel pen decided to die halfway through making the dots on the scalloped oval (great!), so some stickles came to my rescue. Everything was already glued and dimensionaled onto the card and I really didn't want to rip everything up to make a new scalloped nestie oval.

I had some amazing snuggle time with little Jaelynn last night. Oh how I love her! She's just getting cuter and cuter with each passing day. Not to mention bigger! I last saw her three weeks ago, and there was definitely a noticeable difference. If only they would stay tiny forever! There was definitely lots of drooling on my shoulder, cooing, and of course the dreaded 8 o'clock bewitching hour. I even survived the always pleasant spit up. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Loving the papers and the top of turquoise with the ribbon. No oval issues from this end :) I was teasing Tosh on Friday at the release because she told me I'd like her sketch due to no skewed panels. However, multiple panels that require DP are right up there with the skewed panels LOL!
