{1.10.203} cas(e) this sketch!

Let’s CAS(E) this SKETCH!

So excited to be back sketchin’ after our holiday break.

CTS is a challenge blog to inspire you to create a clean and simple card based on a fun sketch.
Here is my inspiration for this week’s challenge and brand new sketch.

I immediately thought of these birds on a wire when I saw this sketch.  I just love THIS silhouette file by Hero Arts.  I’ve used it quite a bit.  The birds have such a clean and classic look.  Just by changing the patterned paper you can create a different look for super easy thank you cards.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will join us for the challenge.

Make sure you hop over to the CTS blog for challenge rules and a blog full of inspiration.
The design team girls are so talented and have the most fabulous cards to share.

full of gratitude

I shared this card on the Unity blog this week, but want to share here as well.  I just love all the great Ippity line of stamps.  This is one of my top #10 faves.
I’m not using your standard autumn colors, but that is why I LOVE it.
Something different, yet, you still get the warmth from the colors of fall.
THERE is a FABBY sale going on too.

Happy day my Friends with Flair Unity peeps…
remember to head back to the Unity blog to visit the rest of the Friends with Flair.

{4.4.2011} hippity hoppin’

It’s Monday!!!

And time to start a new
Ippity Hippity Hop Twist Challenge {IHHTC4}.
We are starting a new round of challenges for April and
first up we have this sketch.

I’m the lucky one to bring you this month of challenges, so I hope you will enjoy them.  🙂  All the deets for the challenge can be found on the Ippity blog or in the Ippity forum.

This is a very common sketch for me and have used this simple design over and over again.  It can be dressed up or down in so many ways, so let your imagination run wild!!!

I’m using the Bitty Pixie Paisley stamp set.  I embossed the cute little paisleys with clear embossing powder.  I just wanted a slight simple background.  The many thanks sentiment fit perfectly on this label die cut.

The fabulous Lisa H. is next!!!!


stamps: Bitty Pixie Paisley {ippity}
patterned paper and die cut: cottage collection {crate paper}
other: deco scissors {Provocraft}, clear embossing powder, ribbon {offray}
