Alright, here I am, back with my card! :D I actually have two cards to share with you because I couldn't quite get the sketch right. Actually, I never did quite get it how I wanted it, but it's not horrible so I quit. I had a horrible stomach ache last night when I was making these cards so I decided that I needed to stop and get some much needed rest! Anyway, here is the first attempt at the sketch. Of course I can't get the picture to turn out like I want.
I forgot to leave room for the ovals! Yikes! I probably could have made it work but I didn't want it to look overly crowded so I just stuck the stamped sentiment and oval on the inside. I just love this image though and had to share it with you! The first time I saw it at Hobby Lobby I just knew I had to have it! I then bought it, brought it home, showed it to my husband and he laughed because he thought it was so funny! :D Anyway, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share it with you!
So, onto the real card. I actually do not like this card NEAR as much as the first one but it actually fits the sketch. I do not have the great SU! oval punches yet so I have to make due with my old (can't remember the brand) punches. Again, horrible picture. The lighting is just awful this morning.
Well, I may try and do this sketch again so that I have a card I actually like but we will see what happens. Sorry for the disappointing cards girls. I have just been struggling to find my creativity after a LONG and STRESSFUL week. This new group of kids is extremely challenging so every afternoon when I come home all I want to do is crawl in bed and sleep. I really hope things start to get better because if they don't, it's going to be one long year.
