FWF and Sketchbook pages 19 & 20

Is time really whizzing by that quickly? I must be having fun because that's what they say! Okay, I admit, I am having fun. I love blizzards (weird, huh?) Well, I'm from Texas so the only snow I saw before moving to the northeast was one day when I was little and I tried to go out and build a snowman with a big spoon (what did I know? Lol) Anyway, we got our blizzard yesterday. By the time it left our area we had 12" of lovely white stuff on the ground. (I was sooo craving a sno-cone, hee hee.)

But now, starting at 10am EST, it's time for Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop. Start with this link and watch for the magic blue blinkie if you're interested in a chance at a prize pack.

I can't seem to stop making these bendy foldy cards. (Remember, Emma will gladly give you the directions if you visit her blog.) I think that once you know the dimensions it gets easier. So, here's Sparky again. He's desperate for the affections of the Siamese down the block so he's in the lab concocting a little love potion. I guess this is sort of a Valentine's card, hee hee. I needed a saying to go with the card and I found just the right one in Just Be You by Melody Ross for Unity. The other stamp sets used are Hugs and Kitties (Sparky) and the Oct '09 Store Kit called Wonderful You (the lab stuff). The DP is Danny O for KandCo.



And here are the next two pages of my sketchbook for the Art House Coop. We're at just about halfway through the story. And, I assure you, with the exception of some name changing, this is a true story. Remember, truth can be stranger than fiction!




Thanks for dropping by!
