Sketching Off Season....lol!!!!

Another fabulous SCS Sketch Challenge by Roxie!!!! Imagine all the possibilites with this one!!?! I decided to use this 'virgin' Provo Craft acrylic mounted stamp. I bought it years ago and never used it cuz' the coloring was daunting......but decided to give it a try.....and must say I was pleased with its cuteness.

Now, if you don't have your sunglasses on, you might want to rethink that decision.....just kidding!! For some reason, Halloween in this warped mind always means psychedelic colors....maybe it's a thing of the 60's and 70's (decades....not my age....at least not YET!!!)

The right border was created by a Martha Stewart border punch. My guess would be that the rest of the card you can easily see what I did.

Today has already been a full day. The sketch challenge, followed by breakfast with our Old Farts Club (Hi Carol if you are reading this). After a wonderful visit full of news, laughter, and friendship, I had time for a swim at the town hall pool. The water was cool today. Apparantly the weather has now gotten warm enough that they turned off the heaters. Chilly!!! After all that I still have lots of the day ahead......!!!

Hope yours is a great one.....enjoy!!!!

Well I was gonna say that if it was an older stamp that you didn't like anymore, I'd take it off your hands, but since you hadn't inked it, I'll wait for the tag day sale! :) Cuteness! Love the colors and the image.
