Sketch Challenge Revisited

Happy Spring! Although it's only 30 degrees, and snow showers are forecast, it is a beautiful spring day in Minnesota. There's nothing like stamping a card in one's bra and panties with the windows wide open. While that's probably more information than you need, it felt so good that I couldn't resist mentioning it. Oh, and by the way, I live on the third floor and haven't been parading around in front of the windows or anything. I don't want you to think I'm any crazier that what I've revealed in the past.

My card is a second attempt at Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. This one's a little more "dressed up." I've still got the bird thing going, however. While there are plenty of Canadian geese around, and I've heard crows cawing in the early morning hours, I have yet to see the first robin of spring. Maybe today will be the day.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Twilight, and Cocoa cardstock; Simple Pleasures paper packet; Cocoa, Twilight, New England Ivy, Desert Sand, and Bamboo ink pads; Impression Obsession Birds of a Feather stamp set; CTMH retired Speckled Background stamp; Cocoa grosgrain ribbon; Antiqued Copper mini brads; 1-13/16 inch circle punch; Criciut/w Mini Monograms cartridge; Stampin' Up Photo Corners punch; 3M foam mounting tape.

I had to get dressed in the midst of this post. My corner is protected. It's a little breezy where my computer is located. Nevertheless, the fresh air feels good. Now that I'm dressed, I'd best get back to the "list," which includes making a list of errands. Have a great day. I'll catch you later.

I like this one better than the earlier one. Maybe it's the colors? Maybe it's the branches with leaves? I don't know. I like it though.

So, were you productive with your errands?

I agree with maricar, I like this version better as well. I think it's because you have more than just leaves...each square is a bit different.

LOL on how you were dressed earlier. Hope you got lots done and checked off your list!
