You're A Khaki Star

What a week so far. Last night Jessie called his parents who thankfully live next door, just to check on them. His dad said his Mom was a basket case and had her medication in a mess, was in her bathroom where she had been all afternoon. This was about 6pm. We had to go to Wally World for some household supplies and did not get back home until 11pm. It took 2hrs to get her medication straightened out and set up for the next 2 weeks. Dad was not even kidding when he described Mom as being confused. I was confused by the time we left last night. Oh well, onto today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. My plans after having to go to work without getting to do the color challenge yesturday were to combine the SC and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Pretty Rusty? Not Quite! with my brand new image I just got in the mail from The Greeting Farm. Well that ain't happenin' cause it is too big and no where to fit it in so for Plan B I used the dp that also came in my order. TeeHee. I love this star paper. It is matted with NQN and I punched the bottom with a Fiskars border punch. I punched out the stars in really rust and Not quite Navy cs then attached a white star brad in the center of each and popped them up. I had to off set them a bit to get them placed. Sorry Roxy. I did not want to handwrite my sentiment and my puter will not print and I do not have a stamp with that sentiment so I was forced to meet my New Years Resolution to use my Quickutz. This is Khaki Alphabet. I think I will give this to one of my grands when they do well on a test or have a great week without turning their Hawks around (means they were bad!). Hope you like it.
