Saturday Sketch Challenge 227 ~ Recycling toothfairy

Good Evening Friends...
Another simple sketch from your stampin411 operators.

Before we get started, I have a cute story my daughter told me today. Yesterday, during breakfast she lost a tooth. She *gasp* forgot to check this morning to see if the tooth fairy left her something for her tooth. Well her little friend Rylee has been getting $5 a tooth, so Alexis was sure that she better be getting the same.... awesome. Is that the effect of inflation now?

Anyways, Alexis told me today that when the tooth fairy takes a tooth from under a child's pillow that she gives it to a new baby so that he/she may have it until their big teeth grow in... Awwwwweeee. These are the times when I really love that I pick her up after school. I'll be working all weekend and through the middle of next week at my newborn photography job, but a part of me will wonder if God has given one of her teeth to a new baby like she said! My creative sweet thing! I guess if I have to be working away from my family on a weekend, that it will be good to keep them with me (in my head) while I'm there. Thanks for letting me share that. I hope it made your heart smile.

On to this week's simple sketch. I really did keep it simple and stuck to the sketch! :D I got a quick peek at some of the operator submissions and chuckled a bit to see that Tammy and I chose the same paper! That is bound to happen! :D

Base: 11 x 4 1/4" scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: Espresso 5 1/8" x 3 5/8"
Layer 3: Holiday designer paper cut 5 x 3 3/4".
Layer 4: Red satin ribbon and a gorgeous bow, using operator Lee's magic bowmaker
Layer 5: ornament punched shape..

You cant tell from the photo but I used shimmer white for the punched shape, so it's sparkly, then sponged the edges with real red to match the paper and ribbon.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. We have a major snow storm ~ 6-10" of heavy wet snow in the forcast ~ (before Halloween) headed our way for this weekend. Say some prayers with me working in the middle of the storm... it is what it is... At least I can still stamp 4 fun!

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton

Ok, Rylee has only been getting $5 because 1) of the traumatic losses she's experienced or 2) that dang tooth fairy forgot change! lol

She now has a basket of $1 bills for the future ;)

Cute card btw ((((HUGS))))

Really cute story, thanks for sharing it! And this card is a perfect quick holiday card but that bow totally "riches" it up. Great job!
