The Race is On and Here Comes Pride in the Backstretch!

Could it be THURSDAY already?! T’is boys and girls and that only means one thing! Sketch challenge time over at Create with Connie and Mary! I started out super confident about this sketch but don’t let it fool you folks! It’s called a challenge for a reason after all. I fought with this pup for HOURS!

Yes… I am embarrassed to admit that. Just as I am embarrassed to admit I had to look up how to spell embarrassed. However, I do challenge you to play along with us!  It’s fun and rewarding! After wrestling with my card I feel that I can claim that I WON! That’s right! VICTORY IS MINE! Or so I think. 😉

Merci

If you look closely you may see a little white playing peek-a-boo behind the Daffodil Delight hearts. That was  part of the struggle. I felt desperate to use white for some reason and guess what… They were stitched on so I couldn’t remove them and pride wouldn’t let me start all over! I mean that was SILK thread I sewed them on with! haha! So I improvised and do what good folks do… COVERED THEM UP! I ran some more hearts through the big shot using the Decorative Dots folder and voila!

My “merci” is the negative cut into the Basic Black using the Greetings Thinlits (and just FYI Margaret Raburn, you can join me in France any time for some coffee at a trendy cafe! 😉 ).  So that’s all folks! I hope you’ll click on over to Create with Connie and Mary and get inspired by the other designer’s cards. They always inspire me!

Just one more thing… I know, last week’s post was short and this is draaaaaaging… (maybe because the baby is asleep!). But while typing and ending the sentence with a period, do you single or double space? There seems to be much debate over this. According to online references I am considered old school because I double space.

Over and out for now friends! Thanks for stopping by!
