Moxie Fab World Sketch Challenge!

Last week was "Go to Sketches" week over at Moxie Fab World to celebrate the release of a fabulous new idea book (which I need to get). Cath challenged us to create a card using one of the sketches from the book.

Here's my card!

I used the Grumpies stamp set by Smeared Ink, a new rubber stamp company. The stamps are a bit different than what's out there, but are big fun. They're awesome quality with deep etched rubber. They're also a great deal since there are so many images and sayings.

The Grumpies are perfect for my mood over the last week or so. I've been an impatient patient and have been totally out of sorts. I couldn't work out. I couldn't craft. I needed help all the time. So this card is sort of a note to myself from myself to suck it up and deal. :D

I colored the Grumpy with Copic markers, used Glaze pens to make his eyes glassy, and then stamped some sentiments in the QuicKutz die cut speech bubble. The patterned paper is from a 6x6 pad by Sassafras Lass. Love it! It's so bright and cheerful and goes so well with the Grumpy!

The card definitely makes me smile. I hope you like it too!

Thanks for visiting today!
