A Big ‘Ole Post

Only 3 days of school left and I am panic stricken and running around like crazy trying to decorate and organize the last few details of the annual Talent Show….whew! And it’s hot! Too hot!
This week finished up a marathon of chaperoning fieldtrips. Yes, it is that time again. Say it with me…”s-u-m-m-e-r”. Ahhhh, summer! Three months of pure laziness! And cardmaking, of course!
Here are a few pics from this week’s adventures.(That’s me with the red tree frog. My fascination of taking my picture with inanimate objects lives on!) I escorted 6th graders to the Pittsburgh Zoo. 7th grade to Idlewild Park and 8th grade to The Carnegie Science Center and Kennywood Park.

On Friday, I learned that my card over at Some Odd Girl’s Odd Idol contest made it to the Top Ten!!! The challenge was to color a SOG image the opposite of what you would think. I colored Pirate Kaylee in hot pink!

The new challenge is to create a scene. I am still creating. If you get a chance, pop over to the Ning community site. Lots of inspiration. The Top Ten will be narrowed down to just 5! It’s excitingly nailbiting!!!!!
The new June sketch is up at SOG. Here is the sketch:

Here is my take:

This is Rocker Mae. I am going to enter this card into the new challenge over at Send a Smile 4 Kids. The challenge is Anything Goes for Kids. I think this image is just perfect for kids; the rock stars that they think they are!
Finally, Operation Write Home’s Sunday Sketch challenge #175:

And my interpretation:

I used a new fairy from Tiddly Inks. She is called Fairy Tenderhearted. The sentiment is a clear stamp from ditto. I think the sentiment matches perfectly!


Wow! This post is just as busy as my life right now! I am off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday! Have a great one, my friends!

  1. Love your take on this week’s sketch Angie. Your coloring is amazing, especially the hair and tree branch. What detail! Congrats on being selected in the Top Ten at SOG. Goooooo Angie!!

  2. Oh my. These cards are stunning. Your coloring is awesome! And your choice of patterned papers on the OWH card is perfect. TFS during your busy, busy week 🙂

  3. Hopping over here from OWH. How was the talent show? Hope it went well (or goes well, if you haven’t done it yet). Have a great last few days of school with the kiddos. As far as your cards, your coloring is superb. I really like your take on the #175 Challenge, not quite perfect squares, looks great! Thanks for sharing! Tamara/Paper Blessings

  4. Girl, you have been busy! I’m here from OWH, but want to wish you a happy last few days of school and thank you for dedicating your time and energy to the children. On to the cards..beautiful coloring, as always, and your card for sketch #175 is adorable!

  5. Such great cards!!! Hey, my parents and a lot of their friends migrated out here to Idaho from Pittsburgh back in the 1960’s. They all worked for US Steel and came to work here for the D.O.E. I’ve only been back to Pittsburgh once, when I was a baby, so I don’t remember. It looks lovely. I’d love to see it some day. Lots of family still there that I have never met. (Brodmerkels!! LOL) Thanks for sharing your cards! I love your coloring and hey… Happy summer… My work (school contract) is over on Thursday. 🙂

  6. What a wonderful selection of creations! I really love your SOG card – totally perfect for the rock star kids, as you said. 😀 So glad you joined us in the fun at SOG this month and am absolutely thrilled with your Pirate Kaylee! Goodluck with the voting for the scene, I’m sure you did brilliantly. 😀

  7. You’ve been sooo busy, Angie!!! I am in love with your mad coloring skills.. your pirate card is amazing.. seriously, so talented! Loving your June Sketch card too! So happy you are hanging with us in the Odd World community! Hugs!!

  8. Wow! Look at all the awesomeness in this post! That pirate card is one of my all time favorites 🙂 Love what you did with the sketch too! Thanks for joining us at SOG, hugs, Katie
