Saturday Sketch challenge 158

Happy Friday! First and foremost, welcome back Tiffany! We missed you girl and are all so happy that Jordan is doing much better.

I scheduled this post to go a little bit early. I'm going to be in the mountains this weekend for some much needed rest. I am astounded to find out that 5 of your 8 operators will be sailing to Alaska with Stampin' Up! Congratulations on your accomplishments ladies!

The operators who earned the trip, in no particular order, are Tiffany, Robin, Selene, Lee and Connie! I know that they have all worked so hard, so a big congratulations to all of them!

As a funny side note, I just emailed all the girls and asked if they called one another... THREE of them used the same stamp set, but all in a different way... So fun!!

We have a really clean and simple sketch for you this week! Robin is on top of the pile this week, with TWO fantastic samples for you. I'm going to guess at the measurements here... :) Love that!

Does the thought of cutting your card stock using measurements baffle you? Well, you can check out the most awesome post on how to read a ruler written by the very lovely and talented Lee Conrey, by clicking here.

Base: Old olive 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Daffodil Delight 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: Old olive 3 1/4 x 2 1/4"
Layer 4: Basic Black 3 1/8 x 2 1/8"
Layer 5: Whisper white: 3x2"

Way cool Creation Robin! So pretty with that vintage tag! Now... if you'd like to see details on each of the operator cards, just click on the pictures below to be transported to their post.. Forgive them if they are not up yet, I posted this a little early. :)
