Card A Day Sketch 3

May is FLYING by! I can not believe Summer is around the corner! We are already on our third sketch for TAC's Card a Day in the Month of May Challenge.

I have already made two cards with this sketch. The second one is scheduled to post on my blog tomorrow. With these (today and tomorrow) cards I am on 10 for the month. I have a few more planned. I am going to be stampin' all day with my TAC Team on Saturday. I think I might get to my goal of 31!

If you have time you should play along with the sketch challenge. What do you think of this little challenge from Heather Scott? I wasn't looking forward to trying it. If I use a circle it is usually with my focal image inside. The rectangle over circle made me stretch outside my comfort zone a lot!

My card features TAC Emma Soar With It Collection Pattern Paper, Cardstock, and Ribbon. I stamped my image from Pick a Date on Ivory Cardstock. I love the playful calendar. You mark the special date using the included flower, heart, or butterfly stamps. It really makes a unique and personalized card. The happy birthday sentiment is from a Level B hostess set, Sophisticated Sentiments. I stamped my sentiment and calendar images with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I used VersaMagic Aloe Vera and Sahara Sand to mark my Mother-In-Law's Birthday. I can not believe that I waited til retirement to finally break down and buy Pick a Date!

If you want to get your hands on this playful versatile set email or call me before it is GONE. TAC's Final Farewell's are now at a 35% off discount. Pick a Date is regularly $10.95 but you can pick up this must have set for just $7.12 if you order by May 28th.

Great take on the sketch, Risa! I'm a little afraid to try it... it looks very "stretching" for me!
