OWH Sunday Sketch

I used this week's Sunday Sketch to make notes for my college girl and her friends ... only 2 weeks of school left so I wanted to wish them luck on finals.

Colors are Crumb Cake and Early Espresso
Stamps are BB:Newsprint and You're My Type

I used one of the SU! Edgelits to make the asymmetric border on the top and bottom.

Thanks for stopping!

Stamp Camp is gonna be a dirty one this month

Dirty as in inky fingers ... geez! :)

Here are are the 2 cards we'll be making next week

 I haven't made a baby wipe card in a long time. I was hoarding my water color paper because I thought it was getting discontinued.  Then I found out it was just getting repackaged ... Now I am using it up :)

So we'll play with re-inkers and baby wipes and make beautiful, dreamy backgrounds

I also promised the stampy crew clean, simple and bright colors ... I think the flower card fits the bill on that

Thanks for stopping!

Unicorn Award

Ok, so without going into great gory engineering detail ... funny work story.  A guy I work with (Justin)  did something that made a task a lot easier for one of my team members.  When I told Dan about it his eyes bugged out ...  A LOT.  So apparently during a status update  telecon I made a comment that Dan's eyes bugged out like he just discovered the last unicorn.  Now I don't remember saying that, but it does sound like something I would say, being a lover of simile and all.

So last week I saw Justin and he thanked me ... because the guys he works directly with were on the telecon ... and thought the comment was hysterical ... and gave him a Unicorn Award certificate.  I haven't seen it but I snickered (loudly, maybe even snorted a little) when he told me.  Then he said he finds random unicorn bookmarks and paraphernalia that just gets anonymously left on his desk.  So now Justin is the proud owner of a unicorn collection, something he never dreamed of or wanted.

I feel that since I inadvertently set these things in motion, I ought to be a part of the collection making :)

The unicorn is a digi stamp that my stamping buddy Tara had.  She printed then asked if she could color it after I told her the story.  Since she has mad coloring skillz and a love of all things Stickles, I said sure.  Love how the little glitter and rainbow fella turned out :)

So I haven't done a whole lot of crafting lately.  I just seem to be in a slump and don't feel creative at all.  Since even making a card seems like a challenge, I thought I'd continue the yellow theme because yellow is a challenge for me too.

Here's what I made for this months Sketch For You To Try

I like the idea of dots so went with the Swiss Dots CB embossing folder and Polka Dot Basics stamps set.  The colors are Soft Suede and Delightful Daffodil.  The floral stamp set is PTI's anniversary set Pretty Peony.
