Those Ladies ROCK


The bloggers group I belong to, Ladies, Ink, issued its members a new challenge, and it’s a TOUGH one! We are to
Step 1 - Create a sketch (it can be hand drawn and scanned, computer generated...whatever, but it must be YOURS - please don't copy from one of the sketch sites) and make a card based on your sketch. You have until next Friday, August 7th for this step.

Step 2 - Visit all the OTHER Ladies, Ink blogs and make a card based on their sketch! You have until August 31st to complete this step. When you post a card based on another Ladies, Ink sketch be sure to link back to the blog from which you used the sketch in your blog post.

Well, I got step one completed. Here’s my sketch which I could not get to post, so Andrew kindly recreated for me in paint and figured out how I needed to post it on my blog. I have no clue what I would do without his help! And here’s my card.


I used my brand new Whiff of Joy stamp and copics to color him. All of my paper is from DCWV Old World Mat Pack. I added my ground with SU’s Itty Bitty Backgrounds. And then, I used some of my much hoarded SU’s Hodge Podge Hardware in aged cooper – long retired, but I still hoard it. It’s a sickness!

Make sure to check out all of the Ladies, Ink blogs for their sketches and creations - the links are on my sidebar! Every one of these girls is amazingly talented!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!



Stamps: Whiff of Joy Dragon
