Getting sketchy

Hello dahlings...

First let us take a moment and reflect on the wonder and glory that has been this past season of Glee. Though I am looking forward to tonight's show it is bittersweet knowing that I will have to wait months before the kids of New Directions will be singing their little hearts out every Tuesday night again. Sigh... what can ya do besides listen to the soundtracks incessantly all summer long? LOL ;)

Ok, enough of me Gleeking out. I do actually have a card to share today too. :)
The new monthly sketch challenge is now up over at the Tickled Pink challenge blog and there is a twist with this one... you also have to create a matching bookmark to go along with your card. Now unlike the Lil Lolita Boutique challenges even if you don't have any Lil Lolitas yet you can still play along in the monthly sketch just so long as you use a stamp that is sold in the Tickled Pink store. Kellie carries a great variety which include Magnolias, CC Designs, Sweet November, Kraftin' Kimmies and more! So take your pick and try your hand at Kellie's fab sketch, there is always a great prize for the lucky winner at the end of the month! :)

For my card I used Lil Lolita Lylah because not only is she super cute but I also loved that she was holding a present. Since I was also making a bookmark I thought it would be fun to have both of them work together to go with an actual book that can be given as a gift to a special friend. :)
And I'm happy to report that all of the papers I used on this card came from my scrap bags, which is always a good feeling! LOL

Alrighty, I'll chat at ya again tomorrow. :)
