Sketch Frenzy Friday 3/28/14

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I created this weeks Sketch. Even though it is a very basic sketch it has a lot of   potential. I even had to really think about what I wanted to make with it myself. I thought a masculine card would be something different so I tried to combine the two in making this weeks card.

Here is the sketch.

This is what I came up with.

Jeff said it was very masculine and he really liked how it turned out. I guess this is a good thing coming from a guy. I had to look up how to tie knots. I found real boating knots on line. This one is called a "Bowline on a Bight". It's a funny name don't you think! I guess I should look up what a Bight is lololol. Here is the link I used to learn how to tie this knot and it has several other types of knots you can choose from as well.
This site has several knots and very good instructions, check it out!

Stamping Supplies used to make this card.

That's all there is for this weeks sketch. I hope you like it and give it a try. We would really love to see what you come up with. Just go to our website and download it there

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time this week to create something fun too.
Chat soon,

Update on Jeff.

Last Thursday, Jeff had an appt to get several nerve blocker injections. He had a really hard time during the injection procedure and almost blacked out??? They had to stop a little early (bummer). But they did get two done and had to stop. By Saturday he started to feel a bit better we were so happy and felt hopeful. By Sunday he was up and around and even drove to the store. Trust me that was huge! However, today he really felt badly again (oh darn) and had to lie down  a few times because of the pain. I think he over did it and has been in bed for so long that his muscles are weak. We have two appts tomorrow one with a Physical Therapist (PT) and the next appt is with an Acupuncturist (AP). These are only preliminary evaluations but at least they will begin a rehabilitation program to get him stronger. We know the shots work and that the. PT and AP will really help out. We are really hopeful but I guess it is just going to take more time.
Chat soon,

The boat knots in the Sketch Frenzy Friday project are just so perfect! I haven't used this set in ages, and need to go get it out - maybe try some knots!
