Sketch This #80: Forest Friends



Happy Thursday! That means it's almost Friday, yay! I didn't take a nap last night, which meant I was tired and couldn't come up with much in the stamping department, but I muddled on through to try and make one card with my new Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog goodies!

I used the Sketch This #80 challenge. I hadn't been there in awhile, and this was a really easy sketch to do! I like their sketches because they have a great design team who shows you scrapbook pages and cards done with the sketch, go check it out!

Anywho, that precious bunny and tree are from the new Forest Friends set and the *hoppy easter* is from An Egg-cellent Easter. The yumm-o paper is the new Walk in the Park collection, and the butterfly was made with the Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, but I cut it down a little to make it smaller. Last detail, in case you're wondering about the ribbon, it's White Taffeta Ribbon, colored with the Cameo Color marker. (Who knew Cameo Coral would start becoming popular?! I've never used it until lately!) The finished card size is 4 1/4" square. Let me know if you have any other questions!

I was trying to think of some funny school stories, but lately they seem more scary than funny. For example, they pulled a car out of a small lake in a public park a few blocks from the school and are searching for bodies, three cars parked behind the school had their windows broken out last week, a news crew was at some apartments behind the school filming today after lunch (I forgot to watch to see what that was about),...and the kicker...on a practice TAKS passage Monday about fire prevention, no one in my group chose a correct answer choice "call 911" because they said "that doesn't work, you can't get through, so that can't be right."

On a lighter note...did you hear the story about the lady who called 911 from a McDonald's because they were out of chicken nuggets?! Click here for details. Hee! Hee!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Your card is so perfect. You made the Cameo Coral look good. I wonder if I could pull that off...
I hope Latreasa Goodman will be ordering with caution in the future. Thanks for that good chuckle.

Your card is adorable! I am so jealous that you have your stuff already. One of these times I'll have to expidite.

I used to work at a school in a not too nice part of town and I'd try so hard not to wake up the people sleeping outside as I walked in. I hope things improve there.

Angie, your card is super cute. I just ordered that set, it speaks to me. I remember when I taught in a not so great area ouside of D.C. I had a student call me stupid b--tch all the time, I finally brought my birth certificate in to show him that is not what my mother named me. :)Hugs, Sarah
