SCS Sketch Challenge meets Color Throwdown!

I just love the sketch challenge...it gives you such a great starting point when making a project! This is for the sketch challenge this week on SCS...

recipe: Stamps- Flourishes-Fight Like a Girl
paper- pretty in pink, kraft, white, melon mambo
ink- melon mambo, fresh snow
accessories- ribbon, stickles

This one is for the sketch challenge also, I just did it on an 8 X 4 size card. I also used grass I had cut out on the Cricut a while ago. Sometimes when I break out the big Cricut I feel the need to cut a bunch of stuff and keep it in a ziplock bag...just so I have some things sitting around!
This one also counts for the Color Throwdown Challenge (green galore, bermuda bay and barely banana)...an interesting combo, dontcha think?
recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics II, Everyday Button Bits
paper- kraft, bermuda bay, barely banana, green galore, white
ink- black, bermuda bay, bashful blue
accessories- buttons, hemp, Cricut grass

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like the new look!
(PS Thanks Elizabeth!)

New Look!

Thanks for checking out my new blog! I had an upgrade!

Two things new here are the link that will eventually connect to my for sale items. I haven't decided to go with Etsy or eWillow yet but I will decide soon!
The other button will connect to my flickr account where you can see samples of my cards and also my invitation and baby announcement samples. There is also an email button to email me with any questions, comments or requests you may have!

I'll be back later with some more challenges I did this week!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
