SCS Sketch Challenge #225

Hi Friends!! You must be thinking I'm post happy lately with all the postings I've been doing! Yeah, it's not that I've been making more cards than usual but it's just that I haven't been saving my cards for future postings. When I save my cards, I sometimes take a day or two days off from crafting and do other things like play with my camera, read a book, or hang out with my family watching TV in place of stamping. I've been trying to participate in challenges and well, challenge cards can't really wait. DT cards can't wait either so that's the reason for all the double postings.

Okay, I decided to participate in the the SCS sketch challenge today! Yipee. I haven't done a SCS challenge for such a long time. I want to do more of them but argggh, there's just enough days to play.

I specifically made this card for my daughter. You know. . . my daughter is not at all impressed by my cute or elegant type cards. She's a teenager and she's not really into cute stuff. She's a rocker chic who likes to play the guitar. . .she also can play the piano but her favorite instrument is the guitar. She has an acoustic and electric guitar as well as a ukulele.

I had to avoid adding ribbons and cutsie stuff on my card. I drew the background. . .it's actually a drawing of her room. She has a sitting area near her window and her room color is brown and blue. . .her favorite colors.

Her favorite subject in school is Math. The highest level math she completed is AP Calculus and this year, she's taking AP Statistics which she loves.

I'm planning to save this card for a special occasion. Because I typically make cute cards, I don't have a stock pile of cards that I can give specifically to her for special occasions so this card will be one I'll save for her and give to her when it's called for.

The guitar and book is an embellishment by "Jolee's Boutique". No, I did not make them. I colored the WOJ image using my Copic Markers. That's about it.

Hope you all are having a fantastic evening!!

Oh Maria! It's so uncanny because as soon as I saw this card, I thought to myself I would tell you she reminds me of your daughter (from photos) and lo and behold, you made this for her! I love your drawing of "her room" and the embellies so perfectly describes the love for guitar playing. You're so talented and she will love and treasure this card. What a Mom you are! Hugs, Cami

Wow Maria! You rocked this card! Great ideas! And I know it was probably a bit outside your comfort zone and its AMAZING! I love that you drew the background in, modeled it after your daughter's room and those scrapbook bellies - WOW, what can I say... a lot of love went into this!

And BTW, I think you secretly craft 24-7... step away from the ink pad Maria... just step away! ;-)
