Nothing Like A Good Pair Of Old Jeans: Sketch Challenge

It’s hard to match the lived-in comfortableness of a good pair of old jeans. When I was in the Peace Corps, I brought a brand new pair of classic Levis with me to Namibia and wore them so often that by the time I left my service, the jeans were like sweat pants.

Relationships are like that too. I love the feeling of being around someone for so long that they are as comfy to me as an old pair of jeans. When I saw the worn denim patterned paper in Authentique’s Genuine collection, that feeling of comfort is exactly what I thought of. So I had to make a jean pocket.


Those sweet little crocheted flowers are from my good friend Tabbetha Gilbert. I thought they fit perfectly here with the jeans.


The card is based on the May monthly sketch at Authentique Paper. I put the flowers in the square grid format.
