No fame, no money, I'm nobody...the way I'm runnin' has sure got me down on my knees...next stop, Vegas, please...

Happy Tuesday, y'all! How was your weekend? I had a great one...Friday was spent at the State Fair of Texas (where you better move fast or they'll fry and serve you on a stick), Saturday was football day, and Sunday was a fun day with family and friends. I even cooked dinner! (don't faint, Mom...)

Anyway, now it's back to the real world, and it's that time of year...I have two kiddos with strep throat. Ick! Luckily they feel ok (only one actually has a sore throat), but it's still no fun. In between dr visits yesterday I took a minute to make a card for this week's Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday.

This is Karen's fabulous sketch for this week:

And here's my card, using Grunge & Tough Guy:

1. Cut and emboss green layer. Sponge edges, distress, and mat with gray cardstock.
2. Cut Kraft panel, stamp with woodgrain image. Sponge edges and distress, and adhere to green panel.
3. Distress edges of black panel and adhere to green base.
4. Stamp sentiment and grungy spots on white cardstock. Punch out with 1 3/4" punch.
5. Run black inkpad around edge of circle. Mat with grey cardstock cut with die.
6. Adhere circle panel to card base with foam dimensionals.
7. Add brads to bottom right corner.

Here's a close-up:

That's about it for today, folks...I'm up late and I'm tired! I'll catch ya later *wink*

Shannan, looks like you and I were on the same page! I love the way you grunged up the circle tag and also the little spiky die cut behind it!
