OWH Sunday Sketch

Operation Write Home's Sunday Sketch  #178 looks like this:
I really like this sketch! It's my style. No circles and the squares/rectangles all line up! I think it has something to do with the way my brain is wired. I like everything to line up correctly. Or perhaps it is just my mad obsessive organizational issues. Yes, it drives my husband nuts! 
Here is my take:

I've been on a Kraftin' Kimmie kick the last two weeks! That's because I keep ordering rubber stamps and as soon as they arrive in my mailbox (ahem, tackle the mailman a block away) I stamp and color them up! Okay, maybe I have more issues that extend greater than organizational skills!?!?
Anyways, this is Alice. She has been out of stock forever but I finally got it!
I colored her up using Copic markers in the following colors:
Hair-E55, 44,47
The sentiment reads: Curioser, curiouser! 
The 4th of July is my favorite holiday! So, I have all my decorations up and ready for America's Birthday! I used the Stars and Stripes paper and added two sticker stars to coordinate with the sketch. 
Today is the last day to enter the Krafty Guest Contest. So, this will be a submission for that as well. The sparkle is the stars, of course. 

 Okay, I am off to enjoy this very hot and muggy summer day! And soon... I may just have some exciting news to share! Have a good one, my friends! 


  1. That image is just adorable! Awesome job on the coloring. (That's something I don't enjoy doing.) And I really like your mix of patterned papers. Great job with this week's OWH sketch.

  2. Your coloring on her hair is just so pretty with those highlights! Love it! I too have a little obsession (ok, huge obsession) with a certain image line and think we just need to embrace it. At least that is what I keep telling myself.......
