Unscripted Sketches #52 and an Earth Day Blog Hop

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Happy Saturday to you.  The designers at Unscripted Sketches are taking part in a blog hop celebrating Earth Day.  We were to use something recycled on our projects. I am starting off the hop today so you are on the right track.   My card also fits this week's challenge at PaperPlay Challenges which is to use no patterned paper and this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner for blooming blossoms.

I used a carrier sheet from a stamp set's packaging as my recycled materials.  I punched out 2 flowers with my flower punch and then layered my buttons on the two tallest flowers.  It's kind of faint in the picture but if you look close, you can see them. 

***Supplies***
Stamps:  PTI Blooming Button Bits, Signature Greetings
Other:  PTI buttons
You'll now want to hop over to April's blog to see the eye candy she has for you.  And then go ahead and finish the hop and then come play with this week's sketch.

Any big plans for any of you today?  We have another soccer game and I'm still hoping for decent weather.  Last week, it decided to start raining about 5 minutes before the game.  Luckily, it was just a medium rainfall, not a true downpour.  We got a bit wet but still enjoyed ourselves.  Christopher was goalie for 1 quarter and didn't allow any goals to be scored.  We're still waiting for his first goal of the season but he's making progress and most importantly, he seems to be having fun. 

However, we have had severe rain for the past couple of days so I'm not holding my breath.  And then there is the most fun chore of laundry.  How does it build up so fast?  I'm thinking of implementing a 5 garment per week maximum for each of us.  LOL.  I definitely hope to make it into the stamp area today.  I haven't gotten to do much crafting this week.  :(

I hope that whatever your day entails, that you have a most fabulous day.  As always dearies, thanks so much for the visit and love that you show me.  Take good care.

Beautiful card Alanna, I love the interpretation of the sketch using just a simple sentiment in place of the box. Happy weekend!

Very sweet, Alanna! At first I didn't see the acetate flowers, and I thought it was super cute with the buttons as flowers, then I saw the clear in the background and loved the subtle touch it adds.

I hope things dry up soon. I don't mind rain in the least, but days in a row of little to no sunshine is a bit much! You just might have MORE laundry, trudging around a soccer field after days of rain, though.

Have a great weekend, no matter what it entails!
