polka dotted hello...

Happy Saturday!  I've got a sketch card for you today.  As always, it's been changed up a little!  Hope you like it!

I masked off the base of this card and then stamped 2 rows of polka dots.  One green and one yellow.  Then I took a lighter yellow ink and sponged all over the polka dots just to change the background a little more.  Then I die cut the top panel and attached it with foam tape.

Here is this week's sketch...and as you can tell I CASimplified it.  :)  The original card is by Arielle and you can click HERE to see it!  It's GORGEOUS!  :)


Stop by the RS blog to see the other sketch samples for this week!  And don't forget to link up your card and play along!  

OK now I have a funny story that some of you might appreciate.  I have to share!  So I am sitting in the living room tonight, texting with my friend Amy and watching the Duck Dynasty season finale with my husband.  I'm sitting there in the dark and I feel this little bump on my arm.  I use the dim light from my phone to look at my arm and there is this black bump.  I panic.  I think it's a tick.  I hate ticks.  HATE.  So I run and turn on the light.  Guess what it is?  


A black pearl.  Even funnier?  I hadn't been in my craft room for a couple hours.  I must have been wearing this little embellishment all evening!  It made me laugh and reminded me of when I found a pop dot in my daughters diaper!  Haha!

Ok, hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping in!

I love what you did with that negative die cut. Pretty polka dots under the die cut. Your story is a crack up. Had me laughing.

Clever use of background polka dots! Love the rounded corners on the focal point too. Glad I'm not the only one who reacts to "bugs"! Would have done the same thing! lol Bev

Love your CAS polka dotty card Laurie, makes me smile! And your story is too funny!!!

Once I was card making in the AM, walked Max, did some laundry, baked brownies, made dinner, ate dinner, walked Max again then relaxed to watch a movie with the hubby. What is that stuck to my pant leg? A button!!! It had one of those Zots stickers on the back of it. That's some sticky stuff to hang on after all of that!!! TRUE STORY :)

Hilarious!!! I'm glad you got rid of your tick. Amazing what we take with us from the craftroom. I adore this card. Super cute!

Tracey McNeely said...

Laurie that is hilarious! I think at one time or another we have all had similar things happen. The red ink where you are sure you are bleeding! Love your card, so simple and fabulous!

Stacey Schafer said...

I just got this die in the mail! LOVE how the dots show through the die perfectly. I had a bit of bling on my arm once so I can totally relate! :)

Rachael said...

Your story has cracked me up!!! Lol.
Your card is wonderful. Love the little bit of colour peeking out!

LOL about the black pearl on your arm-- that totally would have freaked me out, too-- I HATE ticks!
Great card, Laurie! I love your CAS version!

Sudmann said...

Great card - what a beautiful idea! And I love your stories, not only the one about the embellished tick, but also about the "poop" dot in the diaper. Oh my, what do we do to our families ;O)

Taheerah (*LittleMissT*) said...

*Amazing* card Laurie!! I love that background behind the negative die cut so much!!

lol about your black pearl story, but even funnier about the pop dot!!!

Ravengirl said...

Too funny about the black pearl. The pop dot is even funnier as I find the backings for this little things everywhere. Love the simplified version of the sketch!

Lea L. said...

This is so pretty!! Love it!

And that happens to me ALL the time! a self-adhesive jewel will stick to me and it will be on me for hours!! The best part...it is typically something I haven't actually used for days!! :)

Rachel W K said...

Pop dot in the diaper! Oh my gosh...but I get bling all over my bathrobe. In fact, there is a piece of orange bling under the bed in the bedroom, and I think that's one that Teddy must have brought in there.

This card is so awesome. I love it.
