Crazy 4 Challenges C4C71 - Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday! It's that time again. . .what time is that you ask. Well, it's Crazy 4 Challenges time again. I'm still hosting the challenges up until the end of the month and the challenge C4C has for you is a "sketch challenge" Simple enough, huh? Well, for that reason I hope you'll stop by and play along in the challenge this week!!!

The crazy gals at C4C created beautiful cards using the sketch, stop by and check them out or visit the designers' individual blogs:

* Joycelyn Pelkey
Lynda Benden
* Angela Wood

* Silke Kittmann
* Tammy Hershberger

I added a bit of jewelry element to my card. Actually, it was actually a part of an earring that I created but one of the main stone fell off so rather than reattaching the stone, I just left it as is and added it to my card instead. It actually worked out pretty well. It's been fun adding my jewelries as an embellishment to my cards. It's sort of a mix of my crafty world. Maybe next time, I'll add some crocheting and sewing.

I decided a bit of stamping to my card which I haven't been doing much of lately. The butterfly image is by Stampin Up "Simple Sketches", which is an old retired SU set and the leaves are from the "Stem Silhouettes" set. In the past, I've been really terrible at using my SU sets but I'm putting some effort to using them more often.

Another update on my cat Dori. We have no word yet from the vet regarding her biopsy. Hopefully, we'll find out tomorrow. Her incision is looking better each day and she is walking about with less discomfort. So far, she looks great and she's eating and drinking like normal. Her bowel function is normal too. I'm so happy that she seem to be doing very well. Thank you everyone for all your well wishes. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Okay, that's it. . .I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday!!

Love the new look of your blog.
And your card is beautiful.
I like how you're including jewely on your designs as well. And you're busy.
Also, your dd is such a beautiful young woman. I can only imagine how proud you are of her. (Been subbing to you for several years)
Take care.
