Unscripted Sketches #165

Wow - did you see last week's entries?  The submissions were amazing!   It is so exciting to see more and more entries into our weekly sketches. I marvel at the clever interpretations that I see each week.  We would love to have you pass on our challenge information to your crafting friends and invite them to play along as well.

Now, what is this card intended to be you ask?  It is a clipboard with one of those big bulldog type clips at the top!  In hindsight, I should probably have made the top piece a bit narrower and only used two "rivets" (eyelets) instead of three.  Let's just say that this is one of those heavy duty clips!

As soon as I saw this sketch, this was the first idea that popped into my head and try as I may, I just couldn't get past it.  I chose a nice bright background paper but almost to no avail as my "note/list" covers it up!

The "list" was done on my computer (because who has stamps with words like that?).  I feel like I am cheating though when I use computer generated font.  Actual stamping just seems more crafty.

I am sure that these next several weeks are going to be "summer time busy" for everyone (me included) but if you have a rainy day and nothing else to do, create a project and link it up at Unscripted Sketches.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting!
