Life is an Adventure

Hi everyone. Welcome to another great sketch challenge at Sketch~N~Scrap.  Today's sketch is a layout sketch.  I decided to turn it sideways to work for the photos I wanted to use.

Here is today's sketch

I love how he gets so into what he's watching or playing that I can sneak in pictures.  These are from a few years ago and when I pulled them out today he couldn't remember what he was doing.  I told him all I wanted to do was tickle his feet lol.

Now it's your turn.  Get crafting and then hop over to the BLOG and share your creation.

Happy Father's Day

I know right? A Father's Day card? I've been thinking of joining the craft fair here in my town over Labor Day weekend and I want to get my stash up so I'll hopefully have just the right card for that perfect someone.

I used the sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap's Summer Crop over on Facebook. Head over and join in.  We have lots of fun challenges for you to play along with and an awesome prize package.

Here is the sketch I used.

And here is what I came up with.  I created this card while I was watching vidoes on people's craft hauls from the scrapbook expo.  Here in Illinois it's coming up next weekend (17th an 18th) and I can't wait to go!!

Try Stampin' On Tuesday #375 Happy Birthday

I finally used a stamp set I've had forever! I mean, like years! Crazy!! This sketch from
Try Stampin' On Tuesday was perfect for it.

I have a whole set of these perfect fit stamp sets that I purchased a while ago from Close To My Heart and have never used.  I've hung onto them hoping one day I just might pull them out and play.  I made two cards so far using this sketch



I stamped the main image in black and then used ink pads and a sponge to blend the three colors over the image to create some color.

Tropically Yours

I'm super excited to come to you today with a sketch from the new design team I am on.  I was selected to join the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! So excited to be a part of this amazing team.

I'll be doing two sketches a month.  The sketch for today is a fun one!

I changed the layout just a tad to work with the stamp image I wanted to use.  I sponged color to create a sunset effect.  The yellow isn't showing up as well as in person.

Now it's your turn.  Create your card and upload to the BLOG and join along!!

Magical Day

Hope your having a magical day today.  Welcome to another Sketch~N~Scrap  card sketch challenge. This is a really fun sketch and has so many different things you can do with it.  Below is the sketch for this weeks challenge

I've really been into Unicorns and rainbows lately and it's really been influencing what I'm purchasing.  So, when I saw this sketch I knew this rainbow was perfect for it.

I pulled out an oldy but goodie embossing folder and made some clouds for the background and to give my card some dimension.

I was drawn to all the bright colors. I've so been wanting cooler colors and weather but I couldn't pass up using these bright sunny colors.

Pull out your supplies, get crafting and then head over to Sketch~N~Scrap and join in the fun!!

Foxy Lady!

Good morning everyone! It's a cool rainy day here so of course I'm going to craft! There is another great sketch challenge over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog and I've had this card in mind all week.

I actually pulled everything out on Wed. totally intending to sit and craft, but life got in the way (laundry mostly lol) and I just didn't get to it.

Here is the card I made using this awesome sketch.  I've started doing a little water coloring. It's definitely a work in progress but practice makes perfect right?

Supplies: The Stamps of Life July card kit, foxes2stamp and foxes dies(the stamps of life), midnight, over coffee, baby girl ink (Catherine pooler)

Today's Your Day!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the July 20th card sketch challenge at Sketch~N~Scrap! This was a fun one.  I love having different patterns on projects. Gives so much more interest to a card or layout!

Here is the sketch.  Check it and my card out then head over to Sketch~N~Scrap's website and play along.

Here is what I came up with. I'm loving these bright colors.  I normally lean more towards quite/fallish colors but it's hot here so sunny and bright is a must!
