SC287 - It's Me!!!

I sat down this morning and looked at the SCS challenge for the day, as I do most mornings.  Today is Wednesday, so it's a sketch challenge - my favourite kind of challenge!!!  I scrolled down and nearly spit my hot beverage all over my monitor and keyboard.  Instead I choked and had a coughing fit.  My DS asked if I was okay and I pointed at the screen... to my SCS moniker.  Roxie used an old card of mine for the sketch challenge today.  I figure it's good etiquette for me to participate in the challenge and I squeezed it in between a lovely visit with a friend and getting groceries (it is such a sad thing to see children licking the shelves of an empty fridge in the hopes of filling their little tummies... *snort*).  Without further ado, here's my card;

I used this darling cow from Chicken Girl Designs - the image is called Sizzling Good Time.  This image really tickles my funny bone!  It makes me think of sentiments like, 'Pork.  The other white meat.' and 'Why did the chicken cross the road?' with a pithy punch line on the inside.  The sentiment that comes with this image is, 'Have a sizzling good time!' and I used it on the inside of the card.  So fun!

I coloured this image with copic markers that co-ordinate with Cosmo Cricket's paper, Material Girl.  The edges are sponged with antique linen and tea dye distress inks.

I hope you have a chance to play along and use my sketch!
