we've got some work to do now


It is cloudy and 67 degrees here on a Sunday afternoon - summer has only come in teeny little bunches here.


Today's post goes in 3 different directions !

Sweet Stampin - Monochromatic

Crafting When We Can - also Monochromatic


retro sketches with this sketch ...

and here is my monochromatic and sketchy card !

I hand doodled the tag, and behind it is a hand cut embossed image from THoltz, using some old packaging.

I already had the tag made, well, started I guess, with ink and the doodle, so the color just followed.

Card stock - Bazzill
Design paper - Basic Grey
Circle, tag, flowers - Recollections
Sentiment and tape - Tim Holtz
Ink - Ranger
Glimmer mist - 7 Gypsies
Lace, ribbon, jewelry cording, key hole - stash



  1. Very pretty! Glad you could join us at Sweet Stampin' this week.

  2. What fun details on this card! I love the doodling and your color scheme is sooo fun.

  3. You flowers are so pretty on that tag. Beautiful card.

  4. I always admire those clever people like you who can make something gorgeous that fits 3 challenges no less! Brilliant!

  5. Beautiful tag, Jan, love the lock! As for me moving toward art, I go in and out depending on my mood. I started out a painter, gave that up when my first was born! Have a wonderful day!

  6. Very pretty.
