Busy Time of Year

Forgive my absence. This has got to be one of my busiest times of the year as I get ready for Girl Scout Day Camp. I am the volunteer program director. Our camp this year is from June 17th -21st. So from now till then crafting time will be kind of scarce. I didn't get any personal crafting done over the weekend. I did get a couple of day camp crafts done and I'll share those a little later. But tonight I had to make a couple of get well cards. Seems like lots of people are getting sick or having accidents and the only get well cards I have is "Heard you Caught a Bug." Not very helpful in this situation. So I made 2 quick cards tonight.

I used the Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge sketch for this card. I'd been thinking about this sketch all week and really wanted to try it. It turned out to be quite the challenge. I didn't quite get things lined up perfectly but the sea rolls in waves, right? I used the D'vine Swirls embossing folder. The whale is from Stampin' Up! and I masked the sentiment that was underneath the image and then used a larger sentiment that was computer generated.
I am entering this card in:
Another get well card:
The image is from Just Inklined and I used the pre-colored image. The sentiment is from my stash. I used washi tape for the bottom stripes and added a couple small clothespins to hole the sentiment. Easy Peasy but I thought kind of cute! I used the Outlawz Wednesday sketch for this card.
I am entering these challenges:
That's it for me tonight. I have to scoot and get my laundry done before I head for bed. Hope your week is off to a positive start!

What a gorgeous get "whale" card ;). I love how you used that sketch. Don't worry about how straight everything is. I can't do straight to save myself lol. Everything I do has a slant to it. Thank you for playing along with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesdays. Good luck with the Girl Scouts!
