Monday, Monday!!!

I always need something to motivate me in the mornings to wake up. Sometimes it's something big and exciting... but usually it's something small. My conversation in my head usually goes something like this... "Ooh! If you wake up now, you can try that new shampoo you bought yesterday." It's dumb, but it usually works. BUT... now - I have a lot of motivation on Monday mornings because that's the day when 2 Sketches 4 You posts a new sketch and inspiration from my fellow designers. :) Besides the main sketch, a DT member will also post a bonus sketch of their own. I guess I drew the short straw, because I got to be the first to come up with a sketch. ;) Please be kind. I've never drawn up an "official sketch" before.

And... here is my card:

I've had this Spring Trees set on my desk for a couple of weeks and finally got a chance to ink it up. AND... my Jenni Bowlin
Farmer's Wife goodies arrived, so I had to pair Kim & Jenni again. (I introduced them a few posts back) ;)

I wish my photo was a little better. I am SO ready for some sunshine around here! If you look closely at the top right corner, you'll see a little denim tag that I made using my son's worn-out jeans. The tree tops were paper pieced using the cover of my 4x4 Jenni Bowlin paper pack. (See below) They were just the right size!

The main purple panel that frames my tree trio is one of the Farmer's Wife Journaling cards. I use to despise the color purple... but this shade is really growing on me. :)

I hope you play along with me with the sketch! Make sure to go to the 2S4Y blog today and see the main sketch, along with all of the DT's beautiful cards!

Have a great Monday!!! :)
