Card Patterns Sketch 80



Well I have not ventured out in the world too much with challenges but today I thought ...... what the heck live on the edge~~  
This card is for Card Patterns.  I really was not sure what I was going to do but after visiting Mish's Blog I was feeling the whole yellow thing so I went and found a piece of my favorite paper and it all kinda just fell into place.






The card is leaning a bit towards the camera because I ventured outside for better light but because our house is 100 years old NOTHING is level ........ including me:)  

All good stuff going on at the homestead.  We found a house to lease while our house is being built  and I have movers coming this week to give us an estimate on moving.  All we need to do is review the terms of the lease........I cannot think about it too much because there is SOOO much to do and 3 kiddies 5 and under ........ hello calgon take me away!!!!

Have a great day!!!!

A 100 year old house? That is awesome, lady! I love old homes, but I guess my 8 year old house will have to do for now...lol

I really like your card! The golors are nice together. Good job on the challenge. I really like going challenges. Not sure if I like color or sketch better, though!

Great interpretation of the sketch. Love all the different elements. Glad you found a house to lease. Moving is never easy, Just take it one day at a time right now, It will all get done eventually.

SOOO pretty! The felt eyelet trim with the stitching is awesome on top of that green felt! The colors are great and so many fun details!

(I sent you an email...did you get it?) :)

YAY! GOOD LIGHTING!!!!!!

Your work is marvelous and I get so excited when I can see it! *grin*

I know all about old houses, the one I grew up in was built in 1898, this one my hubster and I bought was built in 1902...*groan* But I would take anythign less (unless I was building it myself YOU LUCKY DUCK!)
I cannot imagine how insane things must be for you with little ones, cooking, moving, packing, etc. How do you find the time to make such amazing cards?

Love this card! The felt is great! I want to use felt but it never looks right when I lay out my cards. This is perfect.

Good Luck with your move. It is such a huge undertaking but the payoff will be worth it!

Great card Sue Ann! I just loooove yellow!

Amy said...

All this yumminess on one card? This is absolutely beautiful how all these elements work so well together! I love all the felt trims sewn on the side and of course those coveted wood buttons! (I have hoarded these things!!)
