Sketch Saturday # 87


Hi all...
I'm sure you will all get a laugh out of the
card that I did for this weeks
Sketch Saturday Challenge

I laughed all the way through it, but...
I'm not so sure I'm impressed with the outcome.
I really think that I needed a bigger card for this image.
It really left me with VERY Little room to work.

I may very well re-work this challenge
with something else, and if I do, I will edit, and add
my newer card below this one.

But in the meantime, I hope this image brings you
as many smiles as it brought me!

I tried to stick with the theme of black & white
probably because any other color for this type of card
just didn't seem like it was meant to be.
The image is called "Joy" from
Mo's Digital Pencil

I have to tell you though, considering I work in a private school
and my boss is a nun, with a very good sense of humor.
I think I may just end up taking the image from this card
and making it more like a picture in a frame with some
whimsical saying..and give it to her.
I'm sure she'll get a kick out of it!

Maybe I should ask her why I never see her dancing and
clapping like that... LOL

Oh My Dear Sister Thomas, I just love that woman!
Just Friday when she was telling me about how
a computer wouldn't shut down properly for her,
I said "Sister, I know what the problem is..."
She said "What? because I tried everything"
I said "You know I've seen this before, it's the user"
She got a good laugh out of that!

Oh so you really didn't want a story to go along with
this card did you?  I can't help myself...
This one just makes me smile!
