Sketch Tuesday #57 at Skipping Stones Design

I've really enjoyed working with the sketches from Maile Belles this month.  Sadly, this is the last sketch from Maile since it is the last Tuesday in December.  Can you believe it is the last Tuesday in 2010?  Boy oh boy, where did this year go?  Every year seems to slip by a little more quickly.  I had a couple of ideas floating around in my head for this sketch so I posted both - let me know which one you prefer:

Happy New Year?

Or Happy Brrrthday? 

Thanks for stopping by.  Let's see what you come up with for this great sketch at Skipping Stones Design this week.  Remember to link to SSD 57

Sketch Tuesday #56 at Skipping Stones Design with Play Date Cafe

Hi there ~ is everyone ready for Christmas?  I've got all of my shopping done but as usual I haven't wrapped one gift!  Even the two I need to mail to California for my niece and nephew!  I know, I need to get off the computer and wrap them so I can get to the post office tomorrow at lunch.  But before I do that I want to share my take on this week's Sketch Tuesday at Skipping Stones Design.  Here is the sketch for you to play along, be sure to use SSD 56 if you link to any online galleries.

I flipped the sketch upside down so I could fit the reflection of the cute little penguin from the new set Brrthday.  I also thought this set would be perfect for the color challenge at The Play Date Cafe to use Black and White with a splash of Yellow:

Here's a close up of my take on PDCC#60:

 Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season!

Mojo169-Sentiment Frames

I love vintage but I'm afraid I need more practice...but these awesome Sentiment Frames are really inspiring me, along with the Build a Brad paired with the Timeless Textures set.  This sketch from Mojo Monday was a great place to start:

 And here is the finished card for MOJO169, what do you think?

Sketch Tuesday at Skipping Stones Design with Play Date Cafe

I just love the little snowflakes from a cute set to be released next week called Brrthday, watch for more awesome images from that set at Skipping Stones Design.  The sentiment is from a set that is on sale right now called Christmas Swirls, and also comes with three fantastic images! 


Here is this week's deal and it will go on through Next Tuesday at midnight:
Buy any 3 stamp sets and get Birthday Purses, or Heart Song for FREE!
Here's how:
Buy any 3 stamp sets. When you are checking out with Pay Pal there is an area to "leave a note to seller" this is where you tell me if you want B-day Purses OR Heart Song for free. IF you would like to get BOTH of them for free, simply buy 6 stamp sets. You will automatically get both of them for free!!! This is the only time I've ever offered the chance to get TWO pre-release sets for free.  Be sure to buy your 3 or 6 sets before Midnight on Dec. 14th!

Be sure to play along this week with the Sketch Tuesday layout from our December Guest Sketch Artist, Maille Belles.

The inspiration for my card came from Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC 58...final date for this color combo is today, but they have great color challenges every week.
