Sketch Saturday


Good Saturday morning!  We have a new sketch for you at Sketch Saturday, along with Simon Says Stamp for a sponsor.  Check out the awesome sketch from Debra:


I love this sketch, it was perfect to showcase my tiny DeNami chick image!  (Love DeNami's adorable chicks!!!)  I made this card for a co-worker who just retired...her favorite color is yellow so this Nurse Chick was the perfect image.  She is colored with pencils...how do you like her red clogs?  She is very trendy!  LOL  I did some simple layering and kept the pattern small so that it didn't overpower the chick; I've embellished simply with some grosgrain ribbon.

Just a word about the retiree....  Mary Ellen put in more than 40 years as a staff nurse...that is simply amazing!  She is awesome and will truly be missed...I better stop, I am getting teary-eyed....  To sum it up...Congratulations Mary Ellen for a job expertly done and Best Wishes for your retirement!
