Stampin B's & Stamp TV Sketch

Gosh I get so busy creating for future stuff, that I don't get to play much during the week.  I'm still working on that time management arena - lol.

This is my sketch challenge for Stamp TV.  I thought last week was my last one, but I got to go one more week!  Just a few layers vs last week's CAS sketch that I did.


I used GKD stamp set, Botanicals.  As much as I dislike needing sympathy cards, I do like to have some in my stash.  The font on this set is friendly, but elegant and is perfect for what I wanted.  I used muted colors, as is appropriate and I have to say I am happy with this card.  Once again, I also used GKD's FREE download paper.  This stuff is so awesome as a card base - looks textured I just love that!  Not a member of Stamp TV?  Just register - it is free and filled with AMAZING stuff, along with terrific tutorials - all on video that Gina herself has created.  Well worth the 2 minutes it takes to sign up.



 This card is for the Stampin B's.  This week Lois challenged us to use an animal in a die cut.  I have an animal ON a die cut, so I hope this works.  lol  As you can see I am using Speedy the Cat.  I adore his Santa hat and the way he looks like a stamp.  I went CAS (which, I know I have been doing a lot lately - it's just so fun!)  This is a sneak peek of Mark's Finest Papers, Christmas Postage Due.  (Our blog hop starts next Tuesday!)  Come on over to the Stampin B's and join in the fun~~
Thanks for stopping by -

Both cards are wonderful, but kudos to you on that first one, sympathy cards are always so difficult to make, and you're right, we really should do them in advance, because you can't rely on your mojo when you've just heard that someone you know has died

I LOVE the sketch for this week at StampTV. I can't wait to play. Tonight's the Release Party, though....I'm going to be there.

Hey girlfriend these are both gorgeous. Looks like youve been busy creating. How are the coloring classes coming? I do hope you haven't given up on them. This is the first chance I've had to just check out everyones beautful blogs. I did a bunch of cards a month ago, scheduled them to post at the appropriate times then left town again. Went to my highschool class reunion then stayed with my sister for a few weeks. Didn't want to come home but it looks like Im here to stay till next spring now. Isn't it about time we get together again?
I love these two cards, but now I'm going back to check out the rest of your blog. Hugs, Mel
