Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

Monday’s Color Challenge was supposed to be the In Colors that are retiring in August.  Since I was behind and had promised the ATC card I decided to use those colors today.  I also combined it with Julee’s Mojo Monday sketch.  This week’s sketch was so much fun.  If you ever get stuck in designing a card just jump on the internet and check out some of the card sketches you can find.  They really help with the layout which makes the card so much easier to design.

I also decided to use one of the many retiring sets.  There are so many great sets going away.  I am curious to see what they replace them with.  I can’t wait until August to see the new catalog.  How about you?  Don’t forget if you are interested in our catalog dinner you need to get your registration form and fee to Candice or myself.  You will get a delicious dinner, the new catalog, and make 6 cards with some of the new colors and sets.  Hope to see you there it will lots of fun!

Well enough yacking.  Here is the sketch and my card.

I love the wiggly eyes even if they are crossed! I used some eyelets as I hadn’t used them in a while. I cut a strip of Gable Green and using my scissors made small cuts part of the way down to make my grass.
