Lauren Meader's Saturday Sketch!

Here's Lauren's Sketch!

It's Saturday already! This has been a long week of "waiting" here at our house....for results, good results. We found out a little bit of good news, but also found out we have to wait until Monday for the final results from our son's bone marrow biopsy! Ugghhhh the days just drag on and the worry is undescribable. So what else do you do when you are worried beyond imagine....."STAMP"! It's the best stress reliever. I just made the Christmas card this morning and the monkey card last night! I flipped the Monkey card around for the sketch.

I used my new Riding Hood Red on the Christmas card with some PTI Kraft paper. I'm borrowing my Mom's "BELIEVE" set from PTI. This card looks a little country, but I do like it. I colored with SU's watercolor crayons. I dobbed the entire card with chocolate chip ink to make the swirls stand out.

This is what I came up with last night and I didn't really think that it matched the sketch completely, so I decided to try again this morning with some sleep! Thought I would go ahead and upload the monkey card anyway. Isn't this monkey adorable. It's the new Sock Monkey set from SU and I just love it.

I better run.....Ethan had his cousin spend the night and they are camping out on his bedroom floor. I'm sure they had a I don't know how much sleep they got though!

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Take a look at what all the other gals came up with too!

Very nice. Although the monkey may not be exactly "true" to the sketch, it's a very cute card. and, sketches are a starting point, for inspiration. Great job!
