I'll think of a title later...

2 Sketches 4 You Mine:

This also works for 365 #43 ~ Gift Card holder
Cosmo Cricket tag, BG Junebug paper, CC Jack's World scalloped ribbon. The rest is random stuff.

Day 171 ~ Trio = Button, Triangle, Sticker
I used Sassafras stickers (buttons at corners and star), the star has 10 triangles in there (count em!), and if you can't figure out the buttons... The tag itself is My Mind's Eye. It took me a while to get my head wrapped around this one, but I like the result. Tammy's DT example was so good, I couldn't think of anything but trees for days. LOL

Day #172 ~ ABC's and 123's
Had to use letter stickers and a number. I don't know what company these letter stickers are, all I know is I have A LOT of them. My guess is American Crafts. The card base came from the Michael's dollar bin. This is another inside joke card. It's in celebration of being friends for 10 years. The joke centers around a rap song (Drama "Left, Right, Left"). They spell out stuff in the song and we could never figure out what it spelled. It was later pointed out to us (several years later) that we could have written down the lyrics or maybe looked up the lyrics. Anyway, this all probably falls under the category of "You had to be there...", so I'll spare you the rest.

Day #173 ~ Mixed Message
I'll let Pam explain this one in her own words:
Incorporate THREE ways to create a sentiment to make one big sentiment. Mix and match things like stamped, alpha stickers, handwritten, computer-generated, transfers, etc.
I'm not sure I quite met the challenge, but I used the ribbon, some thickers and my dymo. I was really just messing with some ribbon scraps and playing with my glue dispenser and noticed there was a new challenge up. I was already half done with the card. I was also playing with some embossing. LOL. This card is such a mixed bag, I'm not sure what to think of it. Do not ask me where I got any of this stuff b/c it was all scattered across my desk.
That's it for me. Night Y'all!
