Lucky to know you!

I am finally getting round to the sketch challenge at Inky Paws. This card has taken me several days to make. Work has been crazy for me. I normally work four 10 hour days, but this week I was in at 5am and home around 6 for five days. If you are in healthcare you know about the push for electronic medical records. My health care system started EPIC our new EMR this week. So I was busy while my staff and I got used to it.

I normally sit down and figure out a card in one sitting, but this card was worked on for a few found minutes each day; usually when I was waiting for my bath to fill. I finally finished it yesterday.

I was very literal with the sketch this time. I was too whipped to be very creative. I went with a St. Patty's theme. This card will go to George the DH since he is half Irish. Usually my kitty is colored like my Pinkie girl, but I wanted the contrast of the orange and green and heck aren't orange and green, St. Patty colors?

I used a bunch of NN stuff for this card. I used Newton's Pot of Gold stamp set. There are not many good St. Patty stamps out there and this one is a winner!! The tag is from the fancy edges tag die set and my banners are from the frame and flag die sets. Lastly, I filled Newton's pot of gold with "real gold".

I decided to enter this card in a new challenge site I just discovered. Stamp, ink, paper. They are having a challenge with four-leggedd friends" as the theme. Newton certainly applies here.

Working on this card each day relaxed me during this very stressful week. Head on over to Inky Paws and Stamp, ink, paper and see what everyone is doing for the challenges. There are some very creative cards there. Let the DTs inspire you to join in the fun!!

This is so cute and artsy! And wow, you were able to make this beauty in "found" time. It's nice to have something like card-making that's a stress-reliever and creative outlet. Love it.
