I was talking with my friend Betsy the other day and she asked “remember when we used to do the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge all the time?”
I did remember and I still go look at the ahh-mazing artwork there every week, but I just haven’t felt like doing any challenges lately. Then today I looked and she had participated so I thought “what the heck, why not?” I headed for the craft room as soon as I had my pizza dough mixing in the bread machine, printed the challenge and put my thinking cap on!
This is the sketch I had to work with and sunshine immediately came to mind – probably because we’ve had
some too many gray days here in the great Pacific Northwest!
I had recently reorganized my stamp room and remembered seeing some retired “Surf’s Up” paper and thought I’d start there! I then located a sunshine image on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and pretty soon I was on my way!
Lately, I’ve tried to kick up the inside of my cards by adding images and a little glitz! Here I stamped the sun in Goldrush and the sentiment in Sky and added some Teal Shimmer Trim for a little pop!
Thanks for stopping by for a little sunshine – I hope you’ll also take time to visit the other challenge entrants over at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog!
