My heart aches and Card Patterns Sketch #57

Well this has been a REALLY tough week....we had to put our 9 year old Birman cat down due to kidney failure...oh man that was one of the hardest thing to do!...she was my crafting buddy, my bed mate, and reading companion. Telling my 17 year old daughter who the cat was like a sibling to her and her baby was the next hardest thing I have ever had to do :(

Luckily I had already made this card ahead of time.

This weeks sketch at Card Patterns is a "goodie" and this week is being sponsored by HERO ARTS!!!! My most favorite stamp company EVER!!!

One random participant who uploads their card to Mr. Linky HERE will win both of these stamps sets!!!! Lucky duck!!!

Here is the wonderful and versatile sketch:

I almost always follow the sketch for I find it much easier...I am not that creative , but this week is probably the furthest I have stretched it LOL! I really enjoyed colouring the Say Hello set CL378 with my Copics!!! I also tried the "masking" technique which I think I have ever only done once before....looking at the picture now I think I should have made the mask smaller!! Oh well live and learn, I just have to remember it the next time....that is the hard part LOL!

Hero Arts stamps: CL378 Say Hello, S5215 Clouds, and CG119 Flourish Background.
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress inks in colours tumbled glass for the clouds, peeled paint and crushed olive for the grass.

Thanks for stopping by.....
