Last Seize the Sketch & Inspired By Stamping

I can't believe how fast the year went of being on the Seize the Sketch Design Team! Poof!  Lesley has decided to make this our last challenge, and I want to say thank you for the amazing year I had, and the opportunity to design with some fabulous stampers!!


I used the newly released STAMPlorations Holiday Sketches; Christmas Candle. I do like it just done with gold embossing.  Shery is running her "bundle special" for all the September Christmas sets, they are available starting August 20th.


Meanwhile, I hope to see you play in the last Seize the Sketch challenge!  We would love to go out with huge participation!  Here is the sketch for you:





It is also my day over at the Inspired By Stamping Blog.  Good news on this front, Joanna has asked me to stay on for another year -- naturally, I said YES!


To see what stamp sets [and links] I used to create this card, pop on over to the blog.  Remember, J has amazing blog candy!  Just leave a comment and cross your fingers that you win~


Thanks for stopping by~

Congratulations on being asked to stay on another year. Looking at your cards, that doesn't surprise me. I love the way you've spanned across the two panels with the candles. So effective.
