Quick Card Thursday


I'm so excited about today's quick card Thursday because today I have a sketch to share with you. As I watched the Olympics, this idea came to me. So, I sketched it out. Now, I have to warn you that my sketch is hand drawn and it's not a neat as I'd like it to be. I'm investigating into a program that will allow me to sketch on the computer which will be nice!
**Edited 8/29--thanks to my son I have a nice computer drawn sketch. He's promised to work with me so I can eventually do these on my own!

So, after I got the sketch drawn it was a cinch to put together a card to go with the sketch. But, I didn't stop there I used the sketch as the basis for another card. Both of these cards came together in under 10 minutes. Quick, simple, and cute! All products available through Stampin' Up!

Sharon, Love the layout. You may want to look at Google Sketch - it's F-R-E-E. They have a couple of You Tube video tutorials to get you started (intro and drawing shapes). Sketch also has crazy 3-D capabilities if you want to get carried away...

Love the cards & the sketch. I really need to get another circle punch so I can layer more easily.
