Multitasking: Sketch Challenge 7 and Anniversary!

I cheated just a little bit on the sketch challenge this week... it's our 4th anniversary on St Paddy's Day and I'm going to make a truly Irish card but also wanted to make a more sentimental one. So I dove into my Anna Griffin stash and came up with this adaptation -- no, you can't see the mushy message inside = for Steve's eyes only ;)

As an aside I also took pictures this morning of my blog candy and spring card for the bloghop so I'm ahead of the game for once.. just once... amazing...

Done with "Half and Half" & Spring Card for the Blog Hop

.... so now I'm going to try and get creative with this week's sketch. Went through my stash and found some "blog candy' that either a) was a good idea at the time but I'm not "into" and b) I couldn't figure out in the two times I tried to use. So now to think of a question or two that's fair and easy for both! One's new and one I tried twice but you can't tell ;)

Sunday, Sunday & Sketch Challenge Day

Well, some pine needle mulch around the shrubs, a run with the yard fertilizer and I'm done with yard work for 2010! Can ya tell I hate it? Pruned the shrubs, cut the crepe myrtle way back and Steve cut down the berry and sap tree that hung over the deck.. Now it's just wait for Memorial Day when it's time to put the Margarita Float pool back up. Lovely 60 degree sunny day today in beautiful downtown Mint Hill!

Sketch challenge for this week will probably work with some pieces I already cut for some "anytime" cards to send to children - if not I have tons of "strip" scraps! Thanks for the new sketch, Erika!
