Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Here is my card for the Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. Each week I look forward to these sketches and I am thrilled when I am able to find a few moments to play. Though it tends to get to be late when I find the time but one day a week with little sleep isn't too bad, is it?? It's SO worth it!!!

I needed another thank you card. I was going to make this into a "welcome spring" type card but I really didn't have any use for one but I did REALLY need another thank you card.

I used a Penny Black stamp. It's called "Seeing Your Face" and the words were done using the Stampin' Up! "Holiday Blitz." Now that's another set that I get a lot of use out of. It covers MANY different occasions.

The decorative paper is some retired stuff I had by Stampin' Up! It's always fun when you can use up some of those old papers!!!

I did use the air brush for the sky. It's a lot easier than coloring it in by hand. I LOVE it when I can play with that toy too. It's too bad our son didn't want to take it with him when he moved. We bought it when he was in high school because he was very interested in it but he never used it. SO I get to use it until he wants it back and I hope that isn't too soon!!!

So here is the card I have ready for a friend of mine. It will go out in the mail tomorrow. She doesn't have Internet (I know she is one of the few people I know who doesn't have it) so I don't have to worry about her seeing the card here before it gets to her in the mail!!! She's such an animal lover and I know she's going to like this cute little guy!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
