Saturday Sketch Challenge 145

Hello Friends!

I hope you're gearing up to spend this holiday weekend with the ones you love. Tonight's sketch is a really simple, yet fun sketch with so many possibilities!

One potential set of measurements (that I've already written up) came from the Turtle card below. Here is a potential set of measurements if you need them.

Cardstock and Measurements:
Base Layer: Whisper white, 11 x 4 ¼” scored and folded in half at 5 ½”
Layer 2: Old Olive 5 ¼” x 4”
Layer 3: Pink Passion 2 1/8” x 2 5/8”
Layer 4: Whisper White 2 x 2 ¼”
Layer 5: Bashful Blue Modern Label Punch
Layer 6: Whisper White “very thankful” punched with the word window punch

When in doubt, I like to suggest that you measure your block and go with images and shapes you have on hand. Going by the inspiration cards below, sky's the limit to what you can do with this sketch! Have fun with it!

Never played 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!
We hope you join us this week and play along with this VERY simple but super cute and fun to play with sketch! But don't delay... Mr. Linky will only hang out until Thursday morning at 8 am EST.

Oh ~ and if you'd like more info on the operator cards below, just click on the picture to go to the individual blogs, many of them have measurements for you ready to go...
