Papertake Weekly - it's sketch time!

Hi everyone!! We made it through Monday, and we are finally starting to see some winter weather out here in Reno. I woke up this morning (Monday) to snowy and very icy roads. It was not a fun trip to work today. And it's been flurrying all day and supposed to get down into the teens tonight, so I don't think the roads willl be much of a picnic tomorrow morning either. So enough about our yucky weather! LOL! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and since it's the last Tuesday of the month, that means it's our sketch week which is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!! I LOVE working with Dawny's sketches! I don't know how she comes up with so many amazing layouts, but she's pure genius at it! So here's what we've got this week.


and my take on it...

I used this FABULOUS image from Kraftin Kimmie's newest release. It's in a collection called Tweets and Twitters 2 by Emilie Goulet. It's a set of three bird images with six coordinating sentiments. LOOOVE these birds! Tweets and Twitters 2 release was accompanied by Tweets and Twitters 1, which is equally fabulous! They are so much fun to color! He's stamped onto Cryogen white paper and colored with Copic markers.


The papers are Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth matted with Bazzill cardstock. The sentiment comes with the set of birds. Of course I had to make the little action marks around his hiney to simulate him shaking his tailfeathers. LOL! The flower was made using a Magnolia Doohickey die and the flourish was cut with Cricut Expression and the Straight From The Nest cartridge. How appropriate was that?? LOL!  Added a bow made with May Arts silk ribbon topped with a button, finished it with a little twine and called her done! This is the card we'll be making for my March card class, so hope to see you there if you're in the Reno area!


So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all my amazingly talented teammies creations for you, and then we would truly love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon. HUGS!!

It is really no fair!!!! No fair, no fair she screams into the night. I want bad weather, I love bad weather, I want snow so bad I could spit. And I definitely don't want a hazardous drive to or from work for you. Your card is cute as it can be - we all need fancy tails don't you think? Love you sweet lady and your fun cards.

Your incredible talent knows no bounds! I would have really struggled over having to use a bird image and find an appropriate sentiment but, girl, you've completely nailed this one. Lots and lots and lots of lovely layers, but just a teasing peek into the inside. Beautifully colored and your embellishments are more than fabulous. Fabulous work, but then you always do! Big Hugs...Barb <><
