Shhhh....Don't Tell Christi....

Well, so I'm feeling all sneaky last night. It's time for a new sketch from Unity courtesy of the ever so talented Christi Snow. But wait....these are scrapbook layouts! Aaaahhhhh....what's a card maker to do?????

Ok...yeah, I scrapbook. Really, I DO! Of course, I pretty much go kicking and screaming to a scrapbook page...why? Because I have to have my pictures develped! My poor pitiful pictures are sitting on disks...I at least back them up!....just waiting to be developed! Yeah, I could print them on the printer...they never look as good that way.

So, last night I'm feeling really sneaky...I'm thinking I'll just use this fantastic sketch on a card! Hey, why not? What's the harm????? Heehheee...

Here's the sketch....

You know I think this would really make a great scrapbook page! ;) Of course since I don't have a picture to work with here's what I came up with....

Now, here's where karma kicks in....this card really needs some stitching!!! Notice there is none! Yup, my sewing machine decided to call it quits during the making of this card! Blast! I'm soooo sorry Christi! Really! I promise to do a page next sketch! Honest! ***sniff, sniff....poor old sewing machine!

On the plus side that little Janome mini that I keep hearing everyone talk about is on sale over at Hancock! wooooohoooo! Maybe it's not such a bad thing after all!

I hope you all get a chance to play with this sketch...and really, I don't think Christi will mind if you make a card! She's super sweet! If you guys get a chance to play along be sure and load it up somewhere so that we can all see your beautiful work! At SCS you can use the keyword Unity or USS04.

Here's another sneaky thing about this...it also fits in with a challenge that Heidi has over at SCS found here. I think I would rather think of this as productive. Yeah, that's it! Be sure and check out the deets for that one. There is a give-away but you have to link your card by June 30.

Have a wonderful day! We are off for our first official 'Monday Funday'! We missed last week since we were all still not feeling well. What to do today! I have NO STINKIN IDEA!

Thanks for the fantastic sketch Christi and the fun challenge Heidi! I will post you all soon!
