Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday: SSD024 Rustic Tiles

Hey friends! I’m back this week. Yay… or something. LOL!  Anyway.. it’s been a seriously insane week.  It’s 12:41 am on Tuesday and I’m hurrying to get this post scheduled so I can hit the sack and be ready for work in a few hours.    Long story short: we’re still working with the insurance on settling about the car.  We did, however, purchase a smokin’ hot car tonight in Salt Lake City from the dealership Brent’s bro is a mechanic at. (Details forthcoming.) We also patched up nicks and stuff on walls and corners AND then gutted the laundry room yesterday and got it pretty much dejunked… there’s just some fine tuning for me to do to the stuff we’re storing in there.  I combined and condensed loads of boxes and purged so much junk we were hanging on to.. YAY!  SooooOOO… one step closer to sell the house in the near future which means less time having Brent on the road and more time with him home with me and Sadie.  :)

SO today’s sketch was super fun!  I wish I had had the energy (both mental and physical) last week to tackle the last sketch, but…. maybe I will later..  I pretty much stuck to today’s sketch for ease and speed of construction.

Here’s today’s sketch from the awesome Jen del Muro from I Heart To Stamp:

And here’s my little contribution this week:

I used a variety of scraps (mostly Basic Grey’s Origins) from my scrap bin that sits on my desk.  The sheet music came from the February monthly kit from Treasured Memories Scrapbooking. I looooove the sheet music paper and because Erin Gudge (the other Erin G and owner of TM) is so cool, she sent me a couple extra sheets!  I heart her! :) :)

The focal image is stamped with a stamp from Skipping Stones Design’s Rustic Tiles stamp set.  I’m really loving this set and have another fun card to share with you later this week and a fun technique tutorial to follow.   I colored parts of the image with a clear glitter Sakura gel pen for added *pop* and it’s all tied up with a bit of raffia-ish ribbon.

Here’s a close up:

And I did the inside this time, too.  I think the inside of this one might actually make a cool outside of a card, too.

Well, my friends, that’s it for today.  I hope you all have a mahvelous day!  See you later this week!
