You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back...

Did anyone else cry their eyes out when Trace Adkins sang that song on the Celebrity Apprentice last night?? OMG! Me!!!!!!!!!!! Like a baby!! ugh.

I wanted to work on some challenges this week, so after looking through my stamps, Oh So Lovely with the Sketch Challenge was perfect!! (Pretend I didn't cheat on the color challenge...lol)

I stamped the flower in Versafine Onyx Black and then watercolored it. Perfect tall image for this sketch! I added panels in the appropriate colors (for the sketch), and thought the sentiment (from Carte Postale) would fit perfectly. I stamped the "Merci" in the blank white space in Versafine Onyx Black as well. Perfect fit!

After a few Diamond Stickles highlights...I think it turned out great! Hope you like it!

Paper: Basic Grey, Soft Sky, Basic Black, Papertrey White, Watercolor (Arches)

Beautiful card as usual, Shannan. I was really sad that Trace didn't win and yes I love that song - even more after seeing it live. I heard it so many times yesterday on the radio. Kim

Me! Me! I did! I did! LOL Todd kept looking away so I think he was getting teary eyed too! I was so upset that he didn't win. This card is gorgeous!!!

I didn't watch him sing on that show, but I do know I nearly cry every time I hear that song on the radio in the car, especially when I'm in a hurry to get the kids to dance or basketball/baseball/football etc. Makes me cry now to think about it! I love the card! Jeanne

STUNNING!!

Love this card! I had never heard that song before I watched the show the other night -- definitely made me boo-hoo too! You know I cry when the wind blows... I'm such a sap!

Dumb Donald Trump -- why'd he have to pick stupid Piers? Blech... At least Trace got an awesome plug...
