~ 'ssw #123'... AND... 'try it on tues'

hiya chicikies ~ hope you all had a great scrappin happy week.
i sure had a whole lotta mojo happening! i'm back to doing some knitting again . whohoo! got one scarf completed for dh and i'm onto the 2nd matching one for myself. i'll post some pics of those once they're completed. man ~ i haven't knitted in years. i'm surprised i remembered how. the card i created is for this week's challenge over at sweet sketch wednesday ~ and the tag for try it on tuesday. i used to play there a while back ~ so i'd thought i'd pop in and give it a go. this week's tag theme is 'peace and tranquility' .sure felt great playing with some mixed media again! there's lots of great inspiration at both blogs...i hope you get a chance to check them out! and oh.....my last week's card for sweet sketch wednesday..made the TOP 3 ~ HOW KEWL IS THAT! i'm so stoked! thanks dt!

'THINKING OF YOU' (based on sketch at SSW)
 (coloring details)
dh and i love to go for walks where we live
it's so 'peaceful' and yes...'tranquil'...

the background is done with TM distress inks and water
i then stamped the background images in black
the 'couple' is stamped, handcut and colored with copics
the butterflies are handcut to give a 3d effect
everything is coated with modge podge

thanks for popping by and leaving some lovin!

Wow, what can I say...your card is stunning. YOu always make fabulous cards. I can't wait to see what you make each week.Melody, it is funny how we cycle through some of the crafts from the past. I do the same thing. I won't knit or crochet for years and then all of a sudden I am back at it for a year or so. I am on a quilting kick right now. It has been lots of fun and I really enjoy it. Have a great week.
