SCS Sketch Challenge

It has been so long since I "played" along with the SCS weekly challenges. You may have noticed that the past few days I have been later with postings. One thing I find about posting late at night is that I don't always get the chance to play along with challenges. From time to time I enjoy waking up early and playing along. Although I do know that some of those wonderful challenge hostess' post early, there is nothing more refreshing than grabbing my cuppa joe and creating something fresh just after I have had a good night sleep. The mornings around here are a little more hectic as my son has started K...so that means I often don't get to post first thing even though my creation was finished a few hours ago. I hope you understand *wink*...I still intend to post every day...it just may be a little later than usual.

Today's sketch challenge is FANTASTIC! I absolutely love Rox's designs and can hardly wait to complete them when she posts them. I am still hooked on Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms and of course this colour combo! It is so yummy.



Card Recipe

Paper: Victoria Lace DP (Fancy Pants), Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink), Chocolate Chip (SU!), Kraft (SU!)
Ink: Soft Skye (SU!), Close to Cocoa (SU!), Chocolate Chip (SU!), River Rock (SU!)
Stamp Set(s): Beautiful Blooms (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Scalloped Square Punch (Marvy), Corner Rounder (SU!), Polka Dot Ribbon (American Crafts), Ice Rhinestone (SU!), Dimensionals (SU!)


I promised a photo of my clip it up system. I have yet to put the remaining items on it but I took a few quick snapshots so you can see the work in progress.



Take a peak at my growing Bella collection *smiles*



On another note, I was completely thrilled that all my cards on Etsy were purchased yesterday! I posted them on there because my friend encouraged me too (thanks Ang!). I never imagined they would actually sell *LOL* I have posted a few more on there and will be adding more as I get the chance. If only I could add more time to the day.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Oh Alli, you know I'm a sucker for those colors! Your sketch card is wonderful....submitting to Nichole again I hope! That clip it up thingy looks very space saving and cool. Right now I use my clips I've saved from all my coffee bags and have them nailed to the side of my wooden drawer set....not nearly as pretty, but effective. Have a great day!

I love your new organizer! How cool! I was trying to find your email address to ask you some questions. I'd love to know your Etsy link. How does all of this work? Do you sell one card at a time or in sets?

I love this card! The colors are wonderful and you did a beautiful job with the main image! It does not surprise me that all of your cards sold- you do beautiful work. I have been very curious about the storage rack but have been cautious due to the price. I love the idea of it and my have to consider even harder!
