Jen's Sketch...Finally! ;)

Ok...I am finally finishing this up for Jen's sketch challenge. I started it earlier in the day and ...well...bled all over it! Ok....the first draft just wasn't right....then I started another one and totally stabbed myself with my hobby blade! That's what I get for trying to salvage an image! Owww!!!!!

Sorry for the disgusting commentary! It seems like a trend for me as of late. Yesterday with the story about Carter and the bathroom trash and now it's blood! Ewww. I'm even grossing myself out! ;)

Anyway, I am so excited to finally have completed this sketch. Here it is....For this card I was finally able to use my 'If the Halo Fits' set. I was in love with this set the moment I saw it. The angel reminds me of one of the chemo nurses I met during treatment, Marishka...quite certain I butchered that spelling! I bought this to make a card for her. I hope she likes it. Anyway, I also used real red & whisper white card stock, and some random decorative paper from ?somewhere?. I found the grommets at Memoirs and love them! I do not, however, have the tool to set them so I am not sure if I did it the way it was intended or not. Like it anyway. I also used my Copic markers as well as my clear and silver spica pens.

Well, I hope y'all like this one. I am so excited that the weekend is here and it's time to start these sketches all over again! Woohooo! I am also needing to create one for our card swap. My group had so much fun with that at our last swap we are going to do it again. How fun will that be! I can say that I already have an idea for Beate's sketch....hoping it works out. Excited to see what Sharon has going on this weekend and looking forward to another great one from Jen as well! Thanks so much you guys for so much card making fun! I love it!!!

Take care each of you and I will post you soon!
