Get Sketchy

Well, today is a special day. Today I turn 27. For a few weeks I thought I was turning 28, but I was wrong. In honor of my birthday I decided to set apart some time to do what I love best ... make something. Well, my sweet hubby is off on a mission trip with the middle schoolers, so it was easy to do.

I got a sweet card from my friend Winter, and little stamp set. So I couldn't resist inking it up! Here's the sketch:


And here's what I came up with:


Stamps: Fright Night - My Favorite Things
Ink: Black Tuxedo - Momentum
Markers: Combination of Stampin Up Writers and Copics
Pattern Paper: American Crafts

Also, please notice that little spider. It's one of my favorite things. The body is actually made up of a black rhinestone. This set had a little spider stamp, but I feel like it would be really easy for anyone to recreate! I also, cut out the little pumpkin pals and popped them up! I also covered them with crystal effects.



Check out the rest of the entries here.

Also, I don't talk about work much, but one of the things I've been working on lately is creating a Facebook page for LifeWay Christian Stores. You would all make my week if you would go become a fan here!

Cute card, Courtney. Great idea to use the black gemstone to make a little spider! Hope your birthday was extra happy! Mine is Tuesday -- although I'm significantly older than you! :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend! (If I did Facebook I would certainly become a fan -- but, sorry, haven't ventured there yet. I don't need one more thing to distract me from the stuff I should be doing!)
