I am still figuring out this blog thing.  Whenever there is an update...I have to learn things all over again.  I figure out things eventually.

This card is a sketch challenge over at the Card Patterns blog.  It seems lately, that I have to go out and search for a sketch to get me motivated to make a card.  This was an easy one to put together.  I love simplicity.  I can't spend too much time on a card.  With 3 kids...I don't have a whole lot of time to devote to just one card.

I used some new tools for this card, but stuck with some old paper.  This paper dates back to the Summer 2008 CTMH Idea Book.  I have sooo much OLD paper.  I have to use it up.  I can't justify buying more new stuff if I have a ton of old stuff laying around.  I am sure a lot of you can relate. ;)

All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted:  Paper:  Sarsaparilla Level 2 (retired);  Cardstock:  Colonial White and Black;  Ink:  Black;  Stamp set:  D1497 (available only with Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge);  Accessories:  Black stitched ribbon, Cream Pearl Opaques, Milepost shape (corrugated star chipboard), and Black Bigger brads;  Tools:  Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, ScorPal, sand paper, and pop dots.
