2S4Y Sketch and Blog Candy Winner!

My friend Rae has folled the 2S4Y blog for some time. She always created the most beautiful cards from their sketches. Rae has made the 2S4Y Design Team!!! YEAH Rae! I'm super excited for her. So, I checked out the blog and it's really cool! They have weekly sketches that you can follow and post your creations for the chance to win a prize from one of their sponsors. So, I thought I'd give it a try.

Here's the sketch from the 2S4Y blog:

And, here's my take on it:

Sorry for the blur. The batteries in my camera died as I was trying to take a picture of it and I don't have anymore. So, I had to try to scan the card and since the bow is so bulky, it stands off the glass of the scanner and blurs the image behind it. SORRY! As soon as I get batteries I will post a better pic.

Also, I posted that I was giving away some blog candy. While I have had numerous subscribers (Thank you!) only one person subscribed AND left a comment. That person was Carolyn King! Congrats Carolyn! I have a yummy package heading your way.

In other news, my DH is working diligently today to secure a new mini van for me! Yippee! As I read what I just wrote I can't help but smirk. I was always the one saying no van or wagon but here I am happy to see a van! It is actually in Carrolton, TX so we will be taking a small road trip tomorrow. The pics look great so I'm really hoping that it really IS what it seems...since it's used.

Since my batteries are dead I coulnd't upload anymore pics that's all I have today. But as soon as the camera is back up I'll post some other goodies! Thanks for stoppin' by! Katie

Okay, fixed the picture. Much better! Thank you ladies for your wonderful comments. I forgot to add before that the accordian fold at the bottom of the card was made using my Scor-Pal. To add some detail I chalked the edge of the card and all the creases.

My friend Katie ROCKS!!!! Thanks for the shout-out my dear friend, you are too, too sweet! {I'm pretty excited about the DT too, since it's my first ever DT}
Your card is adorable, sorry your batteries died mid-picture! I told you that the 2S4Y sketches are addicting ;)
Hope that all is well with you... any news on the van?!

Sorry about your camera bats, that can be so frustrating. Blurry or not I can still see that your card is adorable! Love the bright colors with the chocolate brown.

I like your card even with the blurry picture. The colors are great.
