2 sketches 4 you, laura's #22


well, i'm not sure i really like the card i made for the challenge, but it was fun making it anyway. i think it's my early start to SPRING BREAK! i found some time late last night to create something, despite the resulting toll on my teaching (not too bad (: ha.) in case you didn't know, the week before break is H-E-double hockey sticks in junior high... just awful stuff. i mentioned a few of my woes on monday in this post...

BUT! enough about school... here's my card:


i used Laura's sketch #22 over at 2sketches4you, one of my FAVORITE blogs EVER. seriously, i LOVE the sketches, the design team, and the cards that result when i get the chance to try the sketches out (well, i guess i really do like this card--enough to show it.)

but can i just say again: I AM SO EXCITED FOR SPRING BREAK! that means i'll have time to SLEEP, make cards, hang out with friends, and even *gasp* clean up. i know seriously, i'm a dork, i like having a clean room/ scrap space. my lovely brother Joey made another sheet metal box/ tray for me to use for containing some of my clutter, so i'll have to figure out how that will figure into my table space.

i think the card would resonate with me a tad more if you'd used slightly different prints on the right side (the rectangular bits). i do like the little hearts and the vertical ribbon and bow.

it's lovely, though. +5. send me another card!
