A Birthday Wish and a Sketch

sc at the lake

Happy Birthday to Kelley Holland,
Our Daily Bread designs owner. Hope it’s a wonderful day Kel!!


Ya know, I need my own computer! Sharing with the household does just that…puts MY stuff on “hold”! Unfortunately, this is also one of the “business” computers, so if an email or something business related has to be done, I take a back seat! Well….guess what had to be done this morning! yeah…it’s going on NOON and I’m just getting this posted!
I think I need to start a Dawn’s Private Computer Fund!


Here’s the card I did for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast, using the new set from Our Daily Bread designs, With Deepest Sympathy. this has nothing to do with the fact that Kelley is another year older! LOL

SC249 At The Lake

You can see I cut some of the image off to accommodate the sketch. So I punched a circle for the sun, although slightly larger than the one in the image, and colored it to match. I was trying my hand at “shadows” in water.
still need to work on that!

The olive layer is Copic colored to match the trees. The patterned paper is Far East by DCWV… Martha Stewart Fence punch. 

Ahhh, the sun is trying to break through here!! Hope it’s sunny where you are today…
Thanks for stopping!
