Beate's WSC #61

I can't believe that it's already another Weekend Sketch Challenge. I really like this sketch because it is simple yet very unique. Here is the sketch for this weekend.

And here is the card that I made for the sketch. I pulled out some paper that I hadn't used in a LONG time to make this card. But I love the colors together.

Paper: Always Artichoke CS, Sage Shadow CS, Whisper White CS, Wintergreen DSP (Retired)
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon

Thanksgiving Day

Paper: Tangerine Tango CS, Always Artichoke CS, More Mustard CS, Close to Cocoa DSP (Retired), Very Vanilla CS, White Glossy Paper

Halloween Bags

Well, I saw a bag like this on Beate's blog. On her blog she made a cute Christmas bag. So, I decided I would give it a try for a Halloween bag. It took me a while to get the first one done because I was having problems. But now I am on a roll. I love these cute bags.

I hope you like them.

Beate's WSC #60

Well, I am actually getting my Weekend Sketch Challenge Card posted before 11AM (Sometimes I shock myself). Here is the sketch for this weekend.

Here is the card I made. I used the colors from the the most recent color challenge that was posted: Baja Breeze, Really Rust and Chocolate Chip. These colors are great for fall (even though it doesn't feel like fall yet, at least not here).

Stamp Set: September Clear Stamps, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Really Rust
Paper: Baja Breeze CS, Really Rust CS, Chocolate Chip CS, Very Vanilla CS

Dreams Du Jour
