Well can you believe it? It's April already! And not only that, but April Fool's Day too (have you been fooled yet?)
Well there's no pranks here, it's definitely April 1st and with a new month comes a fun new sketch challenge to play along with at The Craft's Meow :)
Our sketch this month is by the super, duper Nina:
This sketch to me said, 'envie'. No matter how hard I tried to interpret it any other way it still demanded to be an envelope so who am I to deny a sketch its destiny? :)
This li'l envie plays on the punny sentiment and will soon contain a treat for my guy inside (I'm thinking cinema tickets for a date night). Normally I'd sneak it into his packed lunch, but as we've both got the next 2 weeks off together I'm not sure how to sneak it into his daily routine!
The sentiment and owl at the top are created by my computer (I had access to the digi version of Get Well Soon so inverted the black and white on the x-ray owl to create it). And I hit upon a cool thing (well, cool to me!) that you can create custom length envies with the seed packet die from PTI. I did this by simply running it only part way through my Cuttlebug, and then using scissors and a ruler to measure and trim how long you need the envie to be past the die cut section! (If that makes no sense to you then let me know! It makes sense in my head but may require pics!)
We'd love to see you ink along to this month's sketch and you're not required to use TCM stamps to share the inspiration. One lucky peep will win the TCM stamp set of their choice and lemme tell ya, you'll be spoilt for choice!
It's a busy Sunday here on the blogeroo: I'll be back in a few hours with a card to celebrate a fun birthday...
Catch ya later! (well when I say later I mean a matter of mins! Ha!)
