Exciting news!!

The one and only Lauren Meader has handpicked eight gals to be her Saturday Sketch Challenge Team and I am one of them!! Can you believe it?!

Funny thing is, there are two gals in the group whose blogs I have been stalking for the last year - but let's just keep that between us. I am totally flattered to even be in the same category with them!

Each week Lauren will forward her sketch to the team so we can have a few days to play with it. On Saturday, we'll all post our samples.

Here is the first sketch...

My son, who just celebrated his birthday, wants to be an astronaut when he grows up. This sketch was perfect for his birthday card.

I used Old Olive for the card base and some great patterned paper from the Metropolis collection by Scenic Route. I cut out the shapes and numbers with my Cricut machine and decided to go with a silhouette style for the 5,4,3,2,1 countdown. I wanted the numbers to kind of blend in so they wouldn't be the focus of the card.

For the main image, I used the rocket from SU's "Pun Fun" set and a sentiment by The Cat's Pajamas.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team did!
