Saturday Sketch Challenge 7/4

Wow! Three weeks since I posted??!!!! I have been sick, sick, sick with a sinus/upper respiratory infection. I got it the last day we did Music Man and am just now feeling better. Music Man was sooooo much fun!!!! Today I had my Technique Class and we had a blast!!!

Before I get to this week's sketch I want to say Thank You to everyone who serves to protect our freedom. Thank you for serving and thank you families of servicemen and servicewomen for your sacrifices as well!

So, on to this week's Sketch which you can see here:

It's Red, White and Blue oriental style!!!! I fell in love with this little girl when I saw Gretchen post it and had to make one. So I took Maria's inspiration challenge, LNS Weekly Challenge and Alicia's Sketch Challenge and rolled them all into one!


Stamp Set: NONE

Cardstock: Real Red, Night of Navy, Blush Blossom, Basic Black and Pink Flamingo DSP

Ink: Going Grey

Accessories: Large Oval Punch, 3/4" round punch.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!


  1. This is beautiful! The little girl is so adorable and I like how the patriotic colors and DSP give it an Oriental style.

    So sorry to hear you've been sick. I'm glad you are starting to feel better. I hope you get back to health very soon. So glad you had fun doing "The Music Man" play. Will we see pictures of you in your costume? Pretty please? :)

    Have a great 4th of July and feel better soon!
