Like, Toad-ally!

July's sketches are up at My Sketch World!  Since it is summer and there is lots going on, Lucy has decided to just have one set of sketches for the months of July & August.  There's lots to do at the MB however, so come on over and check us out!  There are some really creative challenges this month!

Here is the July Card Sketch:

Here's my card:

Yes, that is a paint chip.  When I was looking through my stash I ran across 2 of these.  I thought the strips of color were perfect for the stripes in the sketch.  I used the second chip to punch a small scalloped border for 3 of the colors.  Added a very old rub and some pretty punched butterflies and called it done.

Here is the July Layout Sketch:

Here's my layout:

Brian is so much like me as a kid.  I brought home all sorts of animals.  We had a pool when I was little and we used to have the occasional toad that wanted to take a dip.  I used to tie a string around their belly and take them for a "walk".  I bet they never came back to our yard again.  *laugh*

Happy Friday, friends! Hope you have a terrific weekend!
