Old Guys Rule

It's time for the monthly sketch challenge SSNSC06 over at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog


I decided to flip the sketch to landscape and took the liberty enlarging the circle to make it my focal point...I mean, like, this old guy is a big dude and that small circle just wouldn't hold him.  ;-)



I used my favorite DCWV Citrus Stack, a bit of wavy stitching and that bendy ruler I showed you in my WOYWW post was used to create the wavy border panel.  I even gave him a bit of sun burn.  LOL



It was really warm here today...pushing 90 so a cool dip in the pool was my inspiration. (Ours is too cool for me still...brrrr)

For those of you who made a guess as to which one was me in the WOYWW post yesterday....well, you were all wrong.  I'm the one on the R with the gigantic forehead.  Thanks, Dad...and yes, I still have it and keep it well covered up with bangs.

Thanks for stopping by...I appreciate your comments.

WOWOW Charlene! What a great card! Love all the sparkly you've added (and captured so well with your photography). The use of design elements in the sketch are awesome! You've helped inspire me for my card (whenever the hands start working again). The stitching also looks awesome with the swirling-watery background paper! Thanks for sharing your masterpiece!
