Beate's Weekend Sketch and Some GH Chatter

Hello Everyone!

TGIF means it's time for another weekend sketch from Beate. This week she incorporated circles, which was a bit hard for me since my circle cutter blade is in desperate need of being replaced! I decided to use Blue Bayou with Baja Breeze and So Saffron. I also wanted to use some of the Prints Pattern Paper that I had; and for that I chose the Red to do the circle in the corner. I punched out 1" circles in So Saffron and made a scalloped border underneath the red circle. The little bird image is from Imaginisce and is actually the first time I've put ink on it! I stamped the card base with the "Print Pattern Background Stamp" in Buckaroo Blue ink, which is the closest to the Blue Bayou that I had. The sentiment, which I colored with my markers, is from the retired hostess set "Time Well Spent". I used a different red pattern paper to put as a border around the sentiment and then attached that to a piece of Baja Breeze paper. Finally, I did a bit of paper piercing around it and the card was done.
Oh, by the way, there's nothing wrong with your's a bit crooked! Oh well, can't be perfect all the time!
It occurred to me today that it's been quite a while since we've chatted about GH. So, here's a couple of quick thoughts about that. First, I am ecstatic that Laura is back and I hope she sticks around for a good while this time. Glad to see that little Emma Drake has finally arrived also; but I can't wait to see how Patrick really steps up to his role as Daddy. Still waiting on the Liason thing to come youngest will be in college by the time that happens; but I'm still hopeful!! Finally, I think that Sonny and Karpov are working together; and that they are setting up the Zacharra's. I'm not sure; but that's my two cents. Be sure to check out the WUBS link to the left for more GH spoilers and news.
