365 Cards Sketchy Sunday - Sept. 27th

It's the last Sunday in September! Can you believe it?! I am longing for fall weather, but I know that we are in for at least another month of "summer" here. It's been hot and even a bit humid lately. I know we are in the teeth of fire season and Santa Anna winds. I am longing for sweater weather. Ok, hoodie weather!

Speaking of hot, here is Pam's hot sketch for today! When I first saw this sketch I said, "EASY!"

Alas, it did not turn out to be an easy card to make! It was a hard one for me. I could not get it right and am still not 100% happy with the results. But I did get to use my September ASD kit! The papers are Pink Paislee. I love the Asian feel.

The lace ribbon was part of the kit too, as was the stick pin. The cardstock is a piece of Bazzill Bling I found in my stash.

I stamped the sentiment (Close to My Heart) and then cut it apart. I like the casual look. The small mulberry flowers were in my MOSD kit. (To see my September MOSD project, click here.)

I love stick pins. I tend to hoard them and wish I could find some nice ones in bulk...for cheap!

OK! That's my last September sketch for 365 Cards! Check back tomorrow for my Monday challenge! It was a HARD one too! But at least it does not start with "M"! And that's all the hint you get!


  1. Gloria, I absolutely LOVE what you've done with today's sketch...that pink paislee paper is gorgeous...I love anything asian inspired...

  2. Yes Gloria I agree with Amy the Pink Paislee paper is stunning. I would be happy with what I had created if it looked like this. You did an excellent job of it my friend.

  3. lovely! i don't think I have ever checked out pink paislee paper, but i do like what I see! Love the stick pin too. I can see why you hord them! hope your hoodie weather comes soon!

  4. I too love the Asian-looking style of this paper...must check it out as I've never heard of this company/brand. Thanks for all your lovely comments and providing such great inspirations week after week (or is it day after day?!?)
