My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Tee Time-CTMH; MMSC12


I needed a card today for my husband's birthday so I used this fantastic sketch from this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch #12. This is one time I can actually say I love this card. That's sometimes not the easiest thing for me to do. I'm my worst critic. It looks much better in person. I couldn't lighten it up enough to look natural. I normally take a picture rather then scan it. I like using natural light and it was dark when I finished it.


Anyway, I followed this sketch to the "TEE". A little late night humor there. I must be overly tired.


I used a paper pack from Close to my Heart called "A Guy Thing", and stamp sets called "Tee Time" & "For Every Occasion."

Colors of ink used were Barn Red, Olive and Black.

The grosgrain ribbon and Big Decorative Brad is also from CTMH.


All stitching on the card was done by hand using embroidery floss.
