Caardvark's Sketchfest - Friday!

OK.. Call me crazy, but I got up at 3am to do this card! It took me exactly one hour. Yesterday was a super full day, and I didn't get home until 9pm, then I ate dinner, and then I said 'bedtime'.

The really crazy part? This isn't even the card that I had in my mind while I 'slept'! (OK, if you are a card maker or scrapbooker, and don't see visions of sketches and products floating in your head while you attempt to sleep, I must be crazy!)... Any hoot (Get it? Hoot?) I have some Graphic 45 papers that are just dying to get used! And then, there are some super cute Unity stamps I wanted to use! But, oh well... somehow these goodies caught me eye and said 'we want to play'!!!!

And that is how my itty bitty busy brain works in the early hours!

Why, you say? I was gonna just say 'forget it, I don't have time', but, heck I am only 2 sketches away from the finish line!!!

My weekend is oh so packed, and like I said, I just could not throw in the towel... as easy as it would be.. and most likely I will do the same thing again tomorrow morning.. I have another crazy busy day and evening!!!

Any hoot, Thanks for looking, listening, and commenting!

My dear cousin - YOU are amazing! It's great to see the "challenge" and then to see what YOU come up with - amazing! It's like watching project runway - but better. Don't know where you "get" all this energy. You are a great artist.

Yeah! Andi, you're nearly there! I so admire your tenacity, you stubborn RANCH GAL! Yeee HAW! Of COURSE you got up at 3am: I love it! And to not have visions of paper, ribbon, stamps, glue, etc. in your head while you sleep? Show me the gal who doesn't and I'd be CONCERNED.... that's were the pot does the best boiling! I love your process, you crazy bird! You're AWESOME! This card is awesome! You're posts are especially entertaining while you pump out cards with a "gun to your head!" I'm so impressed! Seriously! Do you think you could have made this card in AN HOUR!?! If you weren't involved in this wacky sketch fest!?! AMAZING card, amazing work! Yipee!

P.S. Give Louie, Lew, Louis, Loooueee, Loo-loo, Mr. Loo, Loo-boy a pat on the head from me! :o)

Hi, Andi! Cute card! And I sure get visions and ideas when I'm sleeping ... so you're not alone there! :-)

Way to go Andi, cute card! Sounds like you were hanging out with the owls at 3am.

Yep, I have visions of crafty projects running through my head at all hours of the day, even when I'm sleeping, so either we're both insane, or we're TOTALLY normal - I'm going to go with normal :)

Great card Andi!
Getting up really early is the only way to be able to stamp for me too :)

Thanks for changing your blog feed settings to full :)
