Deconstructed Sketch #21

Combined a couple challenges today.  First, the fairly CAS sketch over at Deconstructing Jen.  Then, I also used an animal to fulfill the "animal cracker" challenge at Cute Card Thursday.

I wanted to use a while gel pen to accent the "hello," but unfortunately it has dried out and I haven't replaced it yet. I tried to use my white PrismaColor and it worked okay, but just doesn't have the same nice bright clean look.  Adding the white gel pen to my wish list - still on a spending freeze. :(
Time to get on cleaning dinner dishes (spaghetti with clam sauce).  My boys are watching Tooth Fairy on TV.  Just waiting for good ol' 8 p.m. to come around so the boys can go to bed and I can get back to my "real" job - transcription.   And totally off subject, this week, one of my second grader's spelling words is "appreciate."  WOW--I don't know that I had a word that hard until maybe 5th grade? I gotta give it to him, though, he's learned it.  

Have a great night - or day if you are reading this from across the pond! ;)


  1. fabulous card, love how you coloured the lion, he looks amazing! I agree, the spelling does seem harder, I was gobsmacked with the words my 4th grader came home with last year, had to look most of them up!
    Many thanks for joining in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week!
    have a great day, happy crafting, Debxx

  2. This is wonderful! I love how you did the colored circle behind the lion and I really like your artistic coloring of the lion! Great card! thanks for joining us for this week's sketch!
