It's a WIN @ Let's Get Sketchy

Hello!  This day turned out to be a great day!  Not only was it my son, Kevin's 34th birthday and the Phillies won, but my niece Marrah (his cousin) "decided" she is no longer afraid of him!  He is 6'4" and has a beard and as a little girl it (and other men like this) frightened her,  She is 5 now and voila! The day was a TOTAL WIN!!!

Here is the 2nd of 2 monthly sketches @ (click & go) -> LET'S GET SKETCHY.  I hope you get a chance to join us for this month's sketch challenges!

My 1st DEX cards @ Creative Embellishments!

Hello!  I was given a push to try "DEX" cards by Jeri, an online friend that I have been swapping with the past few months.  Well? Yep!  Another fun papercraft!  So I combined this swap with one of my monthly projects for (click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  I had some adorable Creative Embellishments back to school products, the topic she chose, so I gave it a try!

You have 2 weeks to join us for the monthly challenge for a chance to win a $50 gift card for their fabulous and reasonable products!  Hope to see you there!

DEX CARDS:
Creative Embellishments Products Used:  STAR STENCIL: I used Ferro Silver Texture paste to make the stars standout.  Distressed Number Stamp:  I used white ink on one of the cards and black ink on the other card.  School Bus front: I used Tim Holtz yellow distress paint and filled the headlights with Glossy Accents.  Ruler:  I gently inked the rulers with brown ink.  Globe:  I cut one globe in half and placed it on the edge to the right of each card.

SOME CLOSE-UPS:
