SFYTT

I visited Taylor's Site this morning, and she has 8 (yes you read that correctly -- 8) sketch challenges for everyone. She is celebrating a year of cup cake challenges. Well I was a little over whelmed. All of those cards are absolutely stunning!!! I know I am my own worst critic, but I didn't think I could create a card that would do any justice. Does anyone else every feel that way, or am I being to hard on myself? Don't worry I will try later, I just couldn't do it this morning.


So I went over to i{heart}2 stamp. Jen has another Sketch for You To Try challenge, she creates a new sketch every Saturday.

I looked through my non-SU designer paper -- (I am trying to use what I already have before I buy more) -- and I found this DP from Basic Grey, it is called Stella Ruby. I stamped this image and started coloring with my Sharpie markers again. I punched the scalloped circle out with my extra large Marvy punch. Then turned it slightly and punched again. I have done this many times with my SU punch, but I have never done with with my Marvy punch. I like this way for guy/boy cards, the scallop looks to girly.

So what do you think? Is the Sharpie thing working? I promised myself if I continue to "color" cards I can justify purchasing some Copics. I am a little chatty today, sorry for the rambling. :)
