Abie's sketch challenge.

Morning!  Did you have a nice weekend?  Ours went by SO fast.  I love every second of our weekends and I am bummed to go back to work this morning.

Last week I asked Abie if she could work off a card sketch and had her pick one out from my new sketch book. 

Here's the sketch Abie picked...

Abie said she picked this sketch because it looked like her bulletin board.  :)

This is Abie's card!  She went with distressed papers and grosgrain ribbon.  If you look closely, she hand wrote the words "olden days" and "memories".  Ha!

This was my card.  I made my card 5x5 because 6x6 seemed really big to me.  I used striped paper to mimic the stripes on the sketch.

Abie and I had so much fun working on this sketch together.  I hope we can do this once a week or at least once a month together.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great Monday and I'll see you tomorrow!!


  1. oh what fun for the two of you!! both of you really did a great job!! can't wait to see more from abie!!

  2. Ah, crafting is a family affair! :) Love both of your projects. My weekend was great - lots of crafting and I also found a great townhouse! Woo Hoo! It will be a few weeks before I can move step at a time. I will keep looking just in case something else comes up sooner, but if not, this will be fine. Don't work too hard today!

  3. WOW! She did a great job. Love your take on the sketch too. I bet you have a blast crafting together.

  4. Abie did a great job! I love that you are passing on the love of paper crafting down to your daughter. :-) Look forward to seeing more of her work! Maybe she should start her own blog. ;-)

    I'm not too thrilled for it to be a Monday either...weekend flew by! HOpe you have a great week! :)

  8. Abie did a great job! It does remind me of buttetin too. I like your interpretation of the sketch too.

    I hear you about Mondays. It's never fun to go back to work especially after a nice weekend.

  9. I love both of your cards! The first thing I thought of when I saw that sketch was a bulletin board! I think it is so nice that you were able to make cards together, that sounds like so much fun!

    I hope your Monday went well (I totally get what you mean, I was so upset about going back today!)
