Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge 62 - Pixie Dust Studio

I can't believe it's already the 2nd week in August! It's only one more week of summer for me. I've been really busy getting ready for the new school year to start and teach a new grade (Yikes!)...but I was still able to get a card made. Our sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Studio. Kathy is offering two digi's of your choice to the winner of this week's challenge.

We have another great sketch this week from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. It was so fun!

Now, I know you might think I've gone a little crazy making a 4th of July card a month late, but I really loved this image. This is Uncle Sam. I thought he was super cute! I used my Copics (R29, C3, C1, 100, 0, W5, E29, B29, Y15, and E00) to color him. The DPs come from The Paper Studio - All Seasons pack and the cardstock is from DCWV The Cardstock Stack. The ribbon was found at Michael's and the red embellishments are Martha Stewart stickers. The star also came from The Paper Studio - All Seasons pack.

  2. Super fun Uncle Sam card! Love your papers and fun ribbon..
    Are you about ready for all those kids!!!

  3. HI Erika, love your Uncle Sam card, yes you are so organised for next year love your embellishments. Are you just finishing summer break? We are in the middle of third term at school our summer break is at the end of our school year in December and the boys go back to school in February for a new school year. Take care and have a great weekend.

  4. It's not a month late - it's 11 months early! One can never be too prepared. And it's adorable!

  5. It's fantastic Erika!! The papers are amazing as is the ribbon. My sister is still trying to secure her teaching job for September. The good old recession hit education here in Ireland and she's been school hopping for four years now. Not fun. But at least she's home with us every summer. Always a bright side eh??

  6. We've already gone back to school here in Arizona, so enjoy your last week off! Your Uncle Sam is awesome, and I love those bright red embellishments!

    Peace & Luv,
