Oliver and Amelia Summer Fun Card, Which One Wednesday - Sketch #9, and Goals Update

This week's WOW challenge is a sketch challenge!  Check out the Farm Fresh Challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's darling creations!  I decided to flip the sketch on its side to get my image to fit!

Paper: MME Lime Twist Fly a Kite
Stamps: Summer Fun O/A Set, sentiment is PTI
Felt, MFT Star Die, Pearls, Copics, CTMH Bigger Brads, Crystal Stickles, and Liquid Glass

The WOW challenge is open until Tuesday and entries are due by 12 PM CST. The winner is chosen by random draw and wins a free digi of their choice!  Please upload your challenge cards/projects to TGF Galleria > Farm Fresh Challenges 2011 > Which One Wednesday > Sketch 9.

Since I had DT commitments, I waited until today to check in with my goals.  July was a busy month, but really productive for me!  

Work Goals
  • Learn Flash
  • Complete Illustrator and Photoshop Tutorials
  • Technical Writing Class
SCRS Goals
  • Sell enough stamps to pay for each release - January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December
  • Attend CHA
  • Copic Intermediate Certification Class
  • Post 3 Sparkle Creations cards each week - January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December
I had a wonderful time at Summer CHA in Chicago.  I look forward to being an exhibitor at Winter CHA!

Personal Goals
  • DSLR Photo Class
  • Visit Catherine (my bff)
  • Re-dedicating myself to making my Christmas cards and tags
  • Surprise trip for Brent's 30th birthday
I had such a wonderful time seeing my BFF and my friend Katie.  I love/hate how all of my college friends are so spread out over the country.  Especially with Catherine being in DC.  But it was a wonderful celebration for her birthday and a fun long weekend of shopping. 

I also have everything booked for Brent's birthday too!  There's still some kinks to work out, but I am so excited to celebrate this monumental birthday with him!

I hope you all have a lovely hump day!
