Lauren's Saturday Sketch on FRIDAY! :)

HI!  Today I decided to play in one of Lauren's Saturday Sketch Challenges!   I love this layout and just had to make 2 cards.  A boy card and a girl card ;)  I was looking through my stash of cards the other night and I don't have any boy cards....I had so much fun making this card.  I kept picturing this little dragonfly from Bella Stamps as Zain LOL!!!!  I colored the little dude in with my Copics on Gina K white Lux paper.  When I was all done coloring I looked at it and thought one more stroke rigggghhhht here...and  that is when I went outside of the lines.  I was so mad!  Instead of getting frustrated I just covered it up with my white gel pen and went on my way haha!!!!  I decided to use some old SU DSP that I have been hoarding.  My girl friends told me I hoard so girls I am using this for you :)  I was quite excited with my boy card!!!

Now my girl card not as excited about.  It took me forever to find some DSP that I looked and I couldn't find 2 different ones that matched well....I made 6 of these cards and kept the boo boo card for myself forgetting to take a picture of the "good" ones.  The "GOOD" cards didn't have an empty space at the bottom.  As I went to stamp this card the phone rang and my placement was just all wrong...BUT I didn't want to waste it!  I cut the butterfly out and used some stickles and Crystal Effect...oh so shiny and pretty IRL

Well that is it for me to a playdate that I am already late for because it took Zain forever to fall asleep at nap time.  He really needs his naps too or he is CRANKY.  We are going to dinner with friends tonight :)  That always makes me happy.

Have a wonderful night and make sure you check out Lauren's blog on Saturdays for her fun Challenges.  ALL NEW IN MAY!!!! (what am I talking about check her blog EVERYDAY!)
