Sketchbook Saturday #60







Hello!  It's been a bit quieter here this week, but I still have a few cards to get done before the weekend.  It's supposed to be beautiful out, and I have a very busy one planned.  With something going on every day, I'd like to be able to just enjoy it! And it's a long holiday weekend too!  

Before I head off to draft a few blog posts and plan a card or two I wanted to share this card that I made for a friend to give her parents for their anniversary.  I saw this sketch during my blogland travels and knew I had to use it!  I found it on a blog entitled Random Acts of Creativity.  Loved the title and loved the layout!  It is Sketchbook Saturday #60. The Tim Holtz pocket watch frame was in my stash waiting for Father's Day, but it looks like I'll need to go shopping for a new one!  I love this Stampin' Up sentiment for anniversaries and weddings (I've used it before; I'll use it again!) and I couldn't resist altering the watch and adding it to the card.  It takes the place of the BIG flower on the sketch.  Inside the watch I added more TH goodies (a Muse Token and a gear) as well as a few WOC flowers.  The other flowers are from Michaels Recollections line (as is the bling).  I added some tassel trim from my stash and stamped the sentiment on one of the Spellbinders Fancy Tags to complete the card.  Papers are Basic Grey - Out of Print.

I will be too busy watching The Avengers or attending cookouts with the small man this weekend to do much crafting, but be sure to check in on Friday for Sassy Studio Designs' Fabulous Freebie Friday.  You know there is an amazing image just waiting for you over at Paper Craft Planet every Friday!  And it was so cool that I received a copy of their newsletter in my e-mail today (Thanks, Jen!) listing me as their Member of the Week (Thanks PCP!)!  Also be sure to check in on Sunday for a new Corrosive Challenge

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Bearly Mine: #36-Anything Goes
- Party Time Tuesdays: #69-Vintage/Shabby Chic 
- Sweet Stamps: #66-Anything Goes  


Thanks for visiting and hope you're having a wonderful week so far!

Very nice, Regan. That pocket watch is so cool, I love the little trinkets inside. That trim is gorgeous too, a great touch instead of just regular ribbon. I'm sure her parents will love it.
