So what, I've got a short attention span, a coke in my hand

I was a stampin fool yesterday! Is it just me, or is it hard to stay focused on one project for long? I get so distracted sooo easily, especially when I have a deadline. Can anyone identify?

So yesterday I was working on a project and had to have a little "fun time." This cute little owl from Penny Black was calling my name, and I couldn't resist. But seriously, how cute is she?

This used Julee's Mojo Monday #32 sketch again, and I colored her with Copic Markers. My Great Expectations set was still on my desk, so I used a fun little sentiment from that set.

The next card uses Great Expectations with Seeing Stars, which is on sale along with all the other star themed sets at Verve. I had some requests for graduation cards, so I made a few of these in just about 20 minutes. Super easy!


I mentioned it above, but Verve announced a Star Studded Sale this morning with 15% off all Star Themed stamp sets and some accessories to go with them. The sale runs through May 15th, so make sure you check it out. Don't forget, shipping is FREE with orders over $40. Can't beat that!

Have a great Friday, and make sure you check back tomorrow for another Sketch for You to Try!
