Sketchy Thursday #65, and some eye candy for Tracy!!!

Hey all!

I'm so happy that Sketchy Thursday is back! It was nice to have a break, I don't think I stamped for like 3 weeks, though! Yikes! Just got carried away with all the craziness of Christmas! I have been stamping this week like crazy....well it probably just feels like that! But I've made 4 cards this week, and hope to get another few done this morning before Sam has his Indoor Soccer and then I have to pick up the other crazies from school!!!

Tracy totally inspired me with her card, to use some Taylored Expressions stamps! So I pulled mine out, but didn't really see any that I felt like using.....kind of a stampers stupor, I guess. Finally I decided on the little purses....I had never inked them or the sentiment up before! And it's the most perfect card to send to my best friend in Colorado! (Hope she doesn't read this before it gets to her in the mail!!!)
I used some PP that I had laying around from one of my TE Key Ingredients Kits, I just wish I could remember what company or what the paper is called, so if you recognize it, let me know! Thanks! I subscribed to those kits for about 6 months, loved 'em. The only thing is that I acquired way too much solid card stock from them. I wish you could just order the PP and embellishment parts! Plus I was trying to cut back on spending, so I've given it a rest for a while.

Here's a close up of the image and sentiment:
And now for a bit of eye candy......I have to laugh because although I love Edward, and I'm all about Twilight, I'm not obsessed with Rob per say (hopefully he doesn't read my blog and won't find out!).....perhaps if I were 15 years younger!!!! LOL! But I was in Blockbuster before Christmas, usually we Netflix, so I'm not really ever at the video store, and as I was looking at all the new releases, there was this one called 'Robbert Patinson, All Access' Oh, my, I was laughing so hard! I couldn't believe that it as actually a featured new release film.......
Okay, so I think I've been long enough today, really I meant to keep it real short! Oops!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Weekend! Happy Friday! (I'm hoping for a date night tonight, but that probably means I would have to shower! LOL!)

Supplies: Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Patterned Paper from ?. Inks: Riding Hood Red, More Mustard, Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Blender Pen. Stamps: TE Downtown Diva set. Extras: Chocolate Chip twill ribbon, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Nestabilites Dies, Rhinestones!

Your card is so cute... your friend will love it. I don't recognize the paper but it is cute!

Ohhhh my heck girl!!! It's not fair of you to post a card AND pictures of Rob!! How can I think straight?!? I probably would have rented that DVD! There's a blog I stalk too called Robert Pattinson Life. Call me a cougar. LOL!!!!
Seriously your card is awesome! Your friend will love it. I love purses. I've never met one I didn't like. Kinda like stamps! LOL! The paper is from Bo Bunny Kitchen Spice. I have this set too. :) Love that you were able to play with this week's sketch. If I don't find job soon I'm going to have to drive on up to visit you before the baby comes!!! *wink*
