Sketch Saturday Numero Uno

Here's my first attempt at the current Sketch Saturday Challenge:

Here is the sketch:

My oldest goes to summer camp every year... the same summer camp I went to and eventually worked at :), except when I was a camper, I only got to go one week per summer.  My oldest goes 2 to 3 times a summer, and this year my youngest *might* go (she is on the younger side... might not be ready in June...)!  Anyway, I hammer the kids with mail so then they have to sing songs and do silly things at mail-call, so I'm getting the jump on the cards!  Ahhh, happiness is harassing your kids!

Supplies and notes:
  • Crate Paper paper from years ago... (Autumn... you feel me on the Crate Paper love???)
  • Studio Calico stars... I just bought those after xmas, and those are all going to be gone soon... I am loving them.  I think I'm going to make earrings out of them.
  • I dropped some random Rose Quartz Liquid Pearls among the stars
  • The stamped sentiment is from Recollections inked in Memories ink in Sand.
  • I edged the Core'dinations white and the Crate Paper with Weathered Wood Distress Paint
  • I think in hindsight I'd adjust the cant of the panels a bit more.


  1. Haha! That sounds like a fun and interesting way to get the mail! Awesome sauce idea! This card is delightful and those stars are gorgeous! I bet your kids love the happy mail they receive while at camp. I know I liked getting it when I was at a camp. Hugz. ~Niki

  2. Love wooden pieces on cards, and stars are so versatile. I find this card gender neutral due to your choice of stars with this colorful DP.

  3. Love, love, love these cool stars! This looks fabulous!

  4. Lovely card - the stars are a nice touch!Great take on the sketch.

    Thanks for joining us at Sketch Saturday!

    Hugs, Alica :)
