Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge!

Wahoo! Today is the day that I get to post Madelynn's sketch! and if you would like to play along, please do!!

Just upload your card to your favourite gallery, ie Splitcoast Stampers, Paper Craft Planet, Two Peas and make sure you use the keyword MTTSC6. (Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge #6!) and we will track you down and find you know what I mean.

I took the liberty of turning the sketch sideways, because of this Stamping Bella image.

This card took me all weekend - in between the
card kit and the Scripture Challenge, it kept being shoved aside! But here it is in all it's glory!

I love this stamp from Stamping Bella!

It is called High Tops and it reminds me so much of the running shoes my older brother used to wear in school - although his were black high tops and they stunk to hiiighhhhhh heaven..... oooooweeeeeeiiii!!

I am sure my mom would agree with that!

I finally pulled out my Stamping UP paper which is the Manchester Designer Series Paper, and is perfect for a masculine card!

And I know that there is so much white space.....I have a hard time putting any type of embellishment onto a masculine looking card.

I have had this huge Memories brad laying around in my stash, for some time, that I finally was able to put to use today with this card - perfect for the memories that I have of my brother.

I coloured the image with my copics and that is about it! Except for the sewing. I wanted some stitching in the card being as the shoes had some stitching too.

Off to Sarnia today with Holly as she has Math class on Tuesday's. This is an ongoing class that she will be able to take until she is 102 or sick of it, whichever comes first!! Haha!


  1. I love, love, love this card!! I think the image works perfectly with the paper and brad!! I have the hardest time with masculine cards but this one is exceptional!!

    I hope your daughter has fun at math!!


  2. Bonnie - this is such an awesome card! I LOVE that stamp and it makes a great Boy card... You rocked this sketch!

  3. OMG Bonnie your card is fantastic!!!!!

  4. i love your card bonnie! i haven't seen this bella stamp before! it's perfect for a guy; thanks for sharing the story behind the card - i always love knowing the inspiration!

  5. Another great card Bonnie! I too have problems embellishing a masculine card when I have to create one! My hubby would love this since he still has his pair of clay molded high tops he made in art class in High School!

  6. You got me! A Stamping Bella image I hadn't seen!! Too cute!! And how fun to turn the sketch! Great job!

  7. Fantastic card Bonnie!! I love these colors and all that stitching.

    My oldest son has a black pair of sneakers just like that! And they stink too!! Must be a guy thing? I bought a pair of Converse once for myself, but I looked like I had clown feet, so I never wore them. They are cute though!!!

    hugs, Jami

  8. Ok, this reminds me of the Converse Chuck Taylor's that someone stole out of my locker in HS. I was devastated. That and a Gap Purse that I had JUST gotten :( The things we remember! On a much nicer note, your card? ADORABLE!!!
