Sketch 29

Hey there all-

This past weekend we went on a trip to Pittsburgh, PA to the zoo & outlets. We have been to the zoo there before and it is outstanding! It is one of the best we have been to! I am gonna share some pictures with you, if you don't mind! It just has the best layout with such a natural setting. The first picture is of the tigers playing with a giant ice cube! The next is of Taylor & Jack in the garden arbor. I can't belief they will be dating 2 years in November! They are going to be freshman this year! Time sure flies!

Anyway, to this weeks sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches, which was designed by one of our talented DT members, Tricia! This sketch really confused me! I spent so much time looking at it, changing it, redesigning my card that I finally thought well this is what I have so it will have to be it! I still don't know if I can say this is a decent card by me! I am not the greatest card maker but I usually like part of it but this card just is there for me.

Well anywho, the sketch and card!

I used pop dots to put the hedgehog as the center of attention. Of course this is colored with my prismacolor and blended with Gamsol. I still have not tried my Copics! Eek! The rest of the card was done with regular adhesive including the ribbon. I added the flowers in the corners for added appeal. I always ask Taylor what she thinks and she suggested it needed something extra! I wish I could convince her to keep her blog up and show her work because it is awesome!!!!!

Well it was a busy weekend & week so far! I am hoping it slows down very soon!!!! I am thinking of starting my own ning group & blog group. I am not sure what I am going to do but I miss having a spot for everyone to hang out at! I enjoyed that with Creative Xpress & NBKS but both are gone now! Would you be interested in being there with me? Let me know what you think! It will be a fun place for everyone to gather! I promise that!
