My blogging friend Chupa has a sketch posted live every Saturday and you can play along. This time she invited me to join her. Did anyone tell her I kind of stink at sketches? They scare me, but the fear comes from the unknown of it. So my goal for 2013 is to do more sketches and conquer the fear!
Here is the sketch:
Funny, I kind of designed a card that looks like the sketch HERE, but I didn't know it was a sketch at the time! (Maybe I am a sketch person after all?) So anyway, I had to come up with a new design...
I used a scrap piece left over from a card to make the vellum overlay. You can see the card and a video I did to create this HERE.
Stamps: Amuse Grunge Sunrays, Stampin Up! 5th Avenue Floral
Dies: PTI Headline alphabet, Penny Black Butterfly
Ink: Distress Ink Barndoor Red,
Other: zing white embossing powder , versa mark, gold gems, gold polka dot paper

So it's been a while since we talked about the blogging handbook. This is where I discuss my blogging journey with you as there is no handbook. So how are you all doing out there? Are you feeling good about the art you are creating? the recognition you are or are not getting?
Me? Well blogging is a bit like life really. It feels like a roller coaster. Sometimes a bunch of great opportunities happen and I feel like a rockstar. And then there are times NOTHING happens and I feel like no one likes me (or my work) and a total LOSER! There are weeks that I am so busy, lots going on and the social calender is full. I think, wow, I am just awesome. And then someone cancels or one of my kids has a bad day and I feel so NOT AWESOME.
In those times, I try to remember this:
Cuz I am a glass half full kind of gal :) there is always AWESOME ahead, just got to keep marching forward.
Ok pep talk over. Go make a card, call a friend, kiss your kids and be awesome!
