Bright Rakle!!

Hello everyone,
If you take a look at the two slides above you will see all the entries for my sketch challenge! They are all fabulous cards! I can't believe all the talent that has found me!! Keep them coming girls...the contest ends September 5th!!

My card today is one that I did after realizing that I had no thinking of you cards around. I would like to keep at least 4 of each kind of card around, because you never know when you will need it! Unfortunately, when I did need one, I wasn't prepared, and I couldn't take a day off of work to make a card, could I??

I had an oopsie with the pants on the rakle girl. I was adding my twinkling H2O's to make the pants sparkly and brighter, and I added way to much water to my brush the color went everywhere outside the lines and I couldn't fix it~~thank goodness I could cut out the image~~now I think it looks ok!!
Stamps: Rakle, Hero Arts - thinking of you messages
Paper: Georgia pacific cardstock, imagine that text cardstock, DCVW the glitter stack, unknown dp
Ink: versafine black, prismacolor pencils and OMS
Accessories: may arts ribbon, prima flowers, brads

I bought my rakle stamp from Phebe at the Town Scrapper. She ships anywhere in Canada and gives you fast service and reasonable prices! Here is her email address:

Now, I guess we are going into town to order our siding for the house, and to think...I was hoping to go away this weekend. On Monday my hubby and I will be celebrating our Seventh Wedding Anniversary! Oh well, maybe I can get a nice supper out of it yet!!

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!
