So Very Sweet


I had to get my mind off of this Gallery Idol contest for a minute so I grabbed Kazan's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You and Caardvarks "On The Farm" challenge. I am not completely satisfied with this card, but it took me two hours to make it, I didn't have anything to post today, so I figured why not. This card just kept getting bigger and bigger. I love the animals from "Very Punny" a retired SAB SU (sell-a-bration Stampin' UP!) set, but I think they are just too big for this, or maybe one two many on this card...I am not sure. I guess it would be fun for a little kid, since there is a lot to look at. I use triangle and big flat O eyelets from ELE, the gingham brads are from the Target dollar spot. The stars I punched out with my small SU star punch. The sentiment is also a retired SAB SU set, which I had to cut out as it was new in the box. Can you believe this set is two years old and it has never been inked, what was I thinking....obviously I wasn't!
SO...the Gallery Idol voting is suppose to start today at noon MST and run through Friday until noon MST. UPDATE: Voting will not start until tomorrow now (Wednesday). They are going to tally the votes quickly on Friday and announce the 15 that move on and give them the new challenge. I am so excited I could just pee myself! As soon as the voting page is up I will have the link here. My DH is in the computer field and one too many times has he been through the process that should only take a couple of hours which of course turns into a couple of days. Patience is a virtue right!
Thanks again for your sweet comments and words of encouragement! They are so helping me right now!
