May All Your Wishes Come True {SSD #82}

Well, folks it's Tuesday and I'm not going to lie, it feels a bit like it's 'only' Tuesday today. Let's hope things pick up a bit. The nice thing is that the weather was beautiful yesterday and we are heading into what looks like another beautiful day today in the 80's! I love it! And, of course because it is Tuesday, that means that it is Sketch Tuesday at Skipping Stones Design!!!

May All Your Wishes Come true SSD 82


The other day, when I sat down to create my card for this wonderful sketch I was in a super clean and simple creating kind of mood. Sometimes I feel guilty for doing simple cards, like I'm being lazy, but you know what, I happen to like this design, dagnabbit, and the fact that it doesn't take 65 hours to reproduce, is probably a good thing. Just say'n. I love the chocolate ink on the kraft paper and the cotton twine is just the perfect happy accent!

May all your wishes.... (detail)


I used the absolutely beautiful Dandelion Dreams set for my card.

I went & looked at all the cards from this sketch! They're ALL awesome, and so wonderfully varied! But even tho' I tend to be an 'add WAY too much stuff & go over-the-top' kind of person, I am drawn to the simpler designs; the cleaner look! I absolutely LOVE your card, Jen! 'Course, I absolutely love EVERYTHING you make. Your art is a happy, shining reflection of your fun spirit! (I KNOW that's your secret 'ingredient' to creating but - shhhh! - I promise I won't tell!) LOVE YOU!
