Sweet Sunday Sketch - Blue Eyed Beauty!

Hey there! I had such a productive day today in my Craft Room! I finished SIX cards (most of which I can't show you yet) and half of a little hybrid mini album!! It felt sooo good to get back into creating after several weeks of not doing much crafting with the administrative stuff of Stampin' Out Alzheimer's!! (I'll have a final update on that in a few days).

For now, I thought I'd share this simple little card I whipped up for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I just love Karen's sketches and although I've only been able to play along a few times, I'm hoping it becomes a more regular challenge of mine! Be sure to head on over to Karen's blog and play along this week!!

Stamps: Wishful Elegance (Verve)
Paper: Kraft CS (SU); printed digi paper from Blue Eyed Beauty by Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe)
Ink: Not Quite Navy (SU)
Accessories: printed digi bracket journal tag from Blue Eyed Beauty by Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe); Certainly Celery Ribbon (SU)

That's it for now. I have lots to share this week, so hopefully I'll find time to schedule some posts! I'm heading "home" to Oklahoma on short notice - leaving Wednesday night and arriving on Thursday morning. My Grandmother has injured her back and needs to go home (after an extended 7 month Maui vacation!), so I am taking her home. My return flight is up in the air as I have to fly stand-by, so there's a possibility I'll have to turn around and get right back on a plane (NOT fun - the flight from here to Dallas is 8 hours, then a 4-hr layover in Dallas, then Dallas to OKC - not really something I want to turn right around and do all over again). I've been guaranteed a flight back home to Maui no later than Sunday though, so at the longest I'll have only 2 and a half days in Oklahoma - not much time. I'd really REALLY like to make it to a Hobby Lobby and a scrapbook store if I have a chance - if anyone is from the OKC / Norman area and knows of any good scrapbook / craft stores, let me know - it's been a LOOOONG time since I got to do any REAL crafty shopping!!! Keep your fingers crossed I have at least a few hours to buy something fun!!

That Hobby Lobby straight down the road from the airport is great. Also, Scrapbooks from the Heart on Western is really good. I know lots of people who have driven over to it from out here in
Weatherford. The addy is
11649 S. Western Oklahoma City, OK 73170. I haven't been there but my cousin really enjoys it.

Have a great visit back here.

This is gorgeous! Look at all those fun patterns and colors - Love it, Jen! Glad to see you back at your craft table after such a successful SOA event. And WHAT?? NO Hobby Lobby in HI? I would feel bad, but then again, you live in Hawaii! LOL. I hope you can find a fun store to browse in OK - good luck and I wish your grandmother a speedy recovery.
