Considering I was not a big fan of sketches, I can honestly say that I like doing them now--provided they're simple and user friendly.
Kelly drew this sketch for the latest Wild Card Wednesday at Club Anya and Friends and I wanted to give it a shot. I also wanted to use the newest Oliver image from The Greeting Farm.
Isn't he too cute with his little fishbowl and friend? I love the boy images that the Greeting Farm came out with recently. I've got a bunch of cards that need to be mailed to Jennifer's Cards for Kids drive and this card with Oliver is perfect.
And I couldn't end this post without sharing a photo of Swimmy--the classroom pet of room G105.
Swimmy came home for the summer since school is out and he's huge--about the size of a closed fist. And always hungry. Must go and feed him now....
Stamps: The Greeting Farm
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Martha Stewart kraft
Patterned paper: Basic Grey, K&Company
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities Labels Eight,
Cosmo Cricket alpha stickers, star button
