365 Cards Sketchy Sunday!

Hello There and welcome to Sunday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I am excited to 'see' you again and get started on today's sketch. Wonderful Pam gave us this to work with:
I completed my card early this week and thought I was such a rock star only to find out that I did it all wrong!! Apparently I need my eyes checked ; ) SO  I went back to the craft room and fixed it up right. Here is my card:

I made a monogram card because I got these fabulous G.C.D. Studio chipboard letters from the Paper Crafts Blog. (I LOVE winning stuff!)  I thought it went pretty well with what I was trying to do.
Here is a close up. You can kind of see that I metered the corners. Made me feel like I was quilting again! That is all for today. For those of you who are wondering about the 5k race yesterday you can see a little glimpse of it HERE (on my personal blog). My kids were so cute and helpful, although my oldest was really bummed that I didn't win a medal. I decided it was a perfect time to teach him about NOT being the best at something, and that it's ok. He just said "Go get one, I want to wear it!" Hilarious child of mine.

Ok. That is all. I hope you guys have a great day and get your crafting done! Summer is finally here and the busy-ness has been kicked up a notch (or at least thats what I feel!) But it is SO much fun and my favorite time of year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Kristie, great card and what a beautiful family you have. You don't look dorky at all (okay maybe just a little bit).
