Saturday Sketch Challenge 136

Good Evening Stampers!

On a personal note ~ it's always an exciting day when I can meet up with a fellow operator! Today, I had the privilege of watching operator Robin's daughter Emma skate in competition. The girls did such a fantastic job and qualified last night to skate again today. It was so exciting to watch and to be able to be there! Robin won't be joining us this week as a result of being a great mom (in my humble opinion). You can check out her post here and see the way cute costumes! I know when I travel I need about a month to feel normal again ~ so I'm wishing you "God's speed" home tomorrow (after breakfast at the famous Owl diner).

We have another fantastic sketch for you to play with and for me, this one feels pretty clean and simple!

So let's talk measurements. :)

Base: 11 x 4 1/4" scored and folded at 5 1/2" to form your card base
Layer 2: you could use a piece of ribbon, or cut a 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of paper.
Layers 4: Try measuring your stamp block and cut your paper the same size
Layer 3: should be 1/4" larger than layer 4 on two sides.
Add embellishments and you're all done.
Clean and simple, and easy peasy!

Now it's your turn. Never played along with us before? Well, it's easy!

  1. Make a card
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum
  3. Post a link to Mr. Linky (Please be sure to link to your post and not just to your blog so we can find your post a few days later). need directions on that? Check out our posts on "how to use mr linky"
  4. Have some fun and leave comments for each other (and for the operators if you like their work). ~ Everyone loves comments!
And away we go! Here are your operator samples for sketch challenge 136! Please keep in mind that links will close on Thursday morning at 8 AM EST.
