Messin around with the mojo sketch

I know I've been really quiet over the past few weeks. Fact is, I've been super busy getting ready for Stampin' Up!'s annual convention which is all next week. I have over 80 swap cards made (for organized swapping) and I'm looking to start making my general swap cards.

It's so much fun.. You walk through a crowd of thousands of demonstrators who also have cards, and you trade ideas! It's one of my favorite parts of convention.

Anyway, tomorrow and Thursday nights are my card club nights for this month and to get the juices flowing, I thought I'd try my hand at the mojo monday sketch.

Sketch challenges are always a nice jumping off point if you're having trouble knowing what you want to do with a particular stamp set. I just mounted this "guess who's turning" set tonight.

This would be a cute card to have in the stash... Of course you wouldn't circle the number until you know who it's going to, but I think that makes this a wonderful set that you could reinvent over and over again when making cards.

I know I changed up the sketch a bit and took some liberties, skipping the two elements in the bottom right hand corner, but when you get an idea... sometimes you need to just go for it! Thanks for another wonderful sketch challenge!
