Yikes! It's a Saturday Sketch

Hi everyone! Yesterday afternoon and evening we got the best rain! It was a long, soaking in one that we sorely needed. The temperature dropped from 92 to 77 which was soooo nice!

Every Saturday on Papercraft Planet they have a sketch challenge and the one they have this week is such a great one for so many images that I played along with two cards!

My first one is Christmas themed so I can enter it in a lot of challenges - there are a TON of Christmas in July challenges going on right now!

The image is one of Cheryl Alger's adorable snowmen. this one is called Skating Snowman. He's colored with Copic markers. I die cut some snowflake parts out of some glittered felt and glued them together and then topped it with a little blue gemstone.

My next card is a birthday card. I know I make a lot of birthday cards - but I have SO many people to send birthday cards to! I love this one because it can be used for a man or woman; as long as they have a sense of humor!

This ostrich is called What's Quacking? and is from Squigglefly's talented new artist Joni Walker. I love the look on this guy's face and of course I had to give him some googly eyes! The word is printed with my computer.

Here's the inside of the card

Enjoy your day, and thanks for looking!

Fabulous job on the sketch! These are SOOO FUN! I love all of Cheryl's snowmen, but this is one of my favorites! :) The sketch is perfect for your design...AWESOME snowflake!
I spewed my coffee again when I first saw Joni's ostrich! This dude is hilarious and is perfect for how you used him! Such a clever sentiment! :) teehee The googly eyes are definitely a hit!!!

Well you could have shared some of that rain with us! Even with a 50% chance, we didn't get a drop! :(
Hopefully we will get some today!

BTW, surgery had to be canceled because she has a sinus infection so I'll keep you posted.
