Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #93

I'm loving Mary Jo's new sketches she's doing using her new software. If only my cards were looking that good these days. I've been wanting to be creative, but just can't seem to muster up enough energy to drag my butt down to stamp. Today I forced myself to spend a little time stamping this one card which I had intended to get done yesterday but didn't.

I did decide to move my sentiment as my poor image looked so lonely!

This card is going in the mail tomorrow for a stamping friend. It's so funny but I've only met her once (I think) and I will never forget her. It was at our Atlanta Regional when we first met and she came right up to me and said "Aren't you Kim Howard?". I was thinking to myself, okay blondey, do you know this person?, how do I know this person? I was embarrassed as I didn't recognize her right away but as soon as she said who she was I knew!! I was so excited to meet her and was so ecstatic to hear how much she liked my cards. It's always nice to know when people enjoy your work!

So, I hope she enjoys this card I made for her. I'm no longer a demo so I didn't have a bunch of SU! stamps I could use on this so I had to substitute with another set. I hope it brings a smile to her face when she gets her mail.

Make sure you check out Mary Jo's card today as well as the other participating!

I have been wanting to try out some of Joanne B.'s buttony bows and mine don't look as good as hers but practice makes perfect. Make sure to swing on by her blog & wish her a Happy Birthday!! You have until midnight to participate in her Birth-o-Versary Blog Candy Challenge.
