...and the Reveal - Sketch #3 from Sketch Girl!

The 15th has arrived so I can finally share my project for the 3rd sketch!

Here is the sketch so you can play sure to hop over to the Sketch Girl blog and become a follower. We are very close to reaching 100 followers. Once we do, 3 followers will win a stamp set!!

Now my “card” is really more than just a card, open it up...


It is also a mini scrapbook.

This is called a Tri-Fold Pocket Card and it is this week's New Technique Challenge on SCS. The pockets hold tags where I put my journaling on each side. In addition to the journaling, I wrote a little something for my Mom :>) for whom I made this card.

Last weekend, we went blueberry picking and I was inspired. It was one of those moments when you wish you have more than just your still camera because my children were so happy. My sons both love blueberries, but I did not realize how much until they were grabbing the berries by the handful! There were smiles, laughs and yes, a happy dance!

Seeing my children so happy brought back memories of picking berries as a child so I wanted to make a thank you “card” for my Mom. Hopefully she is not reading this right now, because I will be hand delivering it to her this afternoon!

Now I also have my fellow Sketch Girl to thank for inspiring me to turn this week’s sketch into a scrapbook – Chris has been scrapping away and seeing her work reminded me that I am supposed to be scrapbooking too!!
