Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 321 (TSSC321)

Can you believe it is already the last day of June!  Wow time just goes faster and faster as I get older.  Do you feel that way too?  Crazy!

But let's slow it down a bit and do a little crafting..time to enjoy the things that make us feel good along with eventually making other feel good by sharing.  Love this paper crafting thing!  Hope you find a bit of time to play along this week.  Here is the new sketch....

Should be an easy one!  Here is my sample.  I am so obsessed with the new in colors!  I used the Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey for my card today.

I teamed the colors with the vivid vases single stamp for a pretty card for a friend.  The purples actually match better in real life--couldn't get a good picture no matter how many I took.  So just trust me it does match in real life--at least better than in this picture, lol.

Now for the rest of the design team's samples--they are wonderful as always....

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 330 (TSSC330)

I really thing it is going to be a great one.  My card is pretty easy as I just got home from a weekend away for a rugby championship with my son.  Great fun!  But didn't quite leave me with much time to create tonight, so I went directly to my butterflies as I don't think you can EVER go wrong with them!  Mixed in a few new in colors and I am loving it.

Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Love and Sympathy, A Dozen Thoughts
Paper: Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Whisper White and Sahara Sand,Moonlight Paper Pack

Top Three for sketch 319!

I have no idea where the week goes each and every week lately--seems I post the challenge and never make it back to post again until the next challenge is due--I have been stamping and even have a tutorial almost ready but have not spent too much time inside the house.  But the good news is some of you have and have made some amazing samples for last week's sketch.  Here are my top three picks in no particular order....

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 319 (TSSC319)

Here we go again!  Love Monday's---even when my whole house is sick!  What a pain in the butt that is!  This is not the time of year we are supposed to get sick--it really seems worse because my son has all his final exams and he is either missing days or going and taking finals not feeling well--both are bad.  Oh well, that is how it goes sometimes.  Let's just focus on this week's sketch--hope you can find time to play along....

What do you think? I think it looks fun and I can not wait to play with it a bit more--due to being sick my card was done on MDS and not too creative--sorry.   Although I do need some of these grad cards.

now for the design teams samples
they ALWAYS rock the sketches...
