New Sketch to Try!

Hello My Friends!

Well, I'm happy to say I did not blow away in these gale force winds we've been having in Northern Illinois!  They sure made for scary sleeping hearing lawn chairs, decorative pots, patio tables and the occasional trampoline blow down the streets and across the fields!  Luckily, most of our stuff stayed put!

So I found this new blog, Lord Have Mercy! and just love the gals over there!  Many of them use Copics so if your into those markers and looking for techniques and inspiration, it's a must visit blog!  They of course have a sketch challenge too!  I must admit, this is the first time I'm participating in the challenge, and love the opportunity to use my new Papertrey Ink Vintage Ornaments set!  Love LOVE LOVE it! 

The Dazzling Diamonds kinda got all over the place...but I kinda like it thatta way!  What's your thoughts?  Love to hear from ya~
Have a wonderful day!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Vintage Ornaments Cardstock: AC Patterned Paper Christmas, SU! Marina Mist & Whisper White, PTI Spring Rain.  Ink:  Marina Mist (stamp off technique).  Accessories:  Offray Straight and Narrow ribbon White Paperstudio Crystals, SU! Dazzling Diamonds

And the 3rd today!

Guess MoJo Monday has really gotten my MoJo goin!

Clean and Simple is another fav site for my cards.  They are perfect to keep the sketch as simple or as over the top as you like!

Here's Clean and Simples sketch:
And here's Mine:
The color of ink is somewhat faded out...I'm using this new laptop, and I'm not fond of it's editing...Oh well.

Don't you just LOVE Papertrey Ink stamps??!!  I DO! The Coi is from Masculine Motifs, and I again used the Handwritten Notes and Background Basics: Woodgrain.  Cardstock and inks are from SU!. 

This is the first time I've used this set and love it's versatility.

I hope you have enjoyed all the cards I've posted.  I know it's been a long time, but hope you will all visit me again soon!
Enjoy the day!

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello again!  I know!  2 Cards in 1 day?  Well, it'll be 3 actually!  What is my world coming to??!!  Check back for a third post in a bit!

So over at Nichole Headys blog, she has a blog hop every month.  And this month is supposed to be Winter Holidays, and considering where I live, I think Halloween qualifies! 
This sketch I combined Our Creative Corner Color Challenge with Oz-somestamps sketch.  I just love Heather Scott!  She GIVES you all the measurements for her sketch!  Guess you could say Heather's Oz-some! lol~ Had to stick that one in there.

So, Here is Heather's Sketch & CCCC's Colors:

And here's Mine:
So, I've really gotten into Papertrey Ink.  They sell photo polymer stamps, and I just love them!  For this card I used Recipe Box, (I KNOW!  Since they are clear, you can take any of their sets and turn it into a background stamp!), Background Basics: Woodgrain, and Hand Written Notes.  For the cardstock, I used SU!'s Pumpkin Pie, Early Esspresso, Certinly Celery, Almost Amethyst.  Inks are Pumpkin Pie, Pear Piazza, and Elegant Eggplant.  I used Rich Razzel Berry ribbon.  I loved this card as I made it just in time to "Boo!" my I hope she dosent check my page before I get her Booed!

If you've never been Booed! check it out here!  Ton's of fun!

To jump start me back in the paper crafting mood, I thought I'd turn to one of my fav's, the MoJo Monday Blog! Everyone should visit this blog at least once a month! There is so much talent and inspiration it just ooses from the pixels on my screen! :)

Here's the sketch:
And here's Mine:
I've always wanted to be a Shabby Chic Chickie, but it's just not in me! So, I put extra effort in this one, and am please with the result! Whatdya think?

Papers are all SU! the button is Papertrey Ink, and the ribbon is a scrap I had left from long ago.

Winks and Wishes on the Windy Monday!
