365 Cards - #155 - Super Sketchy Sunday

This is the sketch for 365 Cards today because it's Super Sketchy Sunday!!!! I didn't get to make my card last night as I went to bed rather early. Getting up in winter for the Sunday markets is a killer and at minus 5 degrees celsius I could not warm up until at least 11am. Could not feel my feet or hands and I swear my nose had a permanent tap attached to it heehee. The market is the first one of the month out of two markets for our area and this is one was considered to be the smaller market of the two. I did really well and sold several of my new pieces which I was thrilled about. Then along came Tess from The Dust Jacket in town (the local book store) and she was oohing and aahing over my stuff as was her teenage daughter. They purchased some pieces and Tess asked me if I would be interested in bringing some of my beautiful cards and my vintage journals that I make down to the shop to sell. I mean, come on people do I have silly written across my forehead? No? Well that's because I am not silly lol and I jumped at the opportunity to have my stuff put into her shop to sell. So this week I will take a whole selection of cards and journals down town to display in The Dust Jacket for sale.. . .yay!!! Then to top it off about 8-10 women are very keen to do my vintage journal class commencing in two weeks!!! How is that for a successful day? Okay enough of my life stuff let's get onto the card.

This is my take on the sketch above. I hope you like it as much as I do. I used some of my brand new Kaisercraft flowers that my bestie picked up on her trip to Sydney for training this past week and delivered to me at the markets yesterday. We share a market stall together lol. I think that is it for me until later on today when Monday brings a whole new week of challenges for us to complete.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Good luck with selling your creations!! I bet you'll do great, you do such wonderful work! And what a beautiful take on the challenge - I would have never thought to put those colors together but wow they really look great!! I will trade you your 5 degrees celcius for my 105 farenheit (40 celcius)! haha

This card is awesome!! Gorgeous, gorgeous colours and flower, and that background.... ooooh, I'm drooling!

I just ordered a Silhouette SD, so I can make those fancy cuts, too ~ I'm just patiently (NOT!) waiting for it to arrive...
