On this day...

I had scrapbook club/crop at my house last night (Saturday) and we had fun creating.  Finally, I am caught up with this week's sketch challenge for Stampin' Christmas All Year Long.

Connie, you can quit asking me if I am caught up now!  Thank you!

This sketch is from challenge #9 (03-23-09) and my card is below.  I am not thrilled with how that one turned out, but sometimes I need to just go to the next one.  

I felt like embossing on both of the cards I made last night.  For the first one, I used clear embossing powder and then sponged ink (tulip, olive and vineyard berry) over the image to match the pattern paper.

Here is the sketch for challenge #10 (03-30-09).  I wanted to use non-traditional colors on this card.  I traded my friend Terese some cards for embossing powders.  I used the light blue powder and love the way this looks.  I have so much paper and one of my resolution's this year to use what I have.  So I grabbed paper from Level 2 packs I purchased already.  The pattern green paper is from Emporium and the pattern blue paper is from Stardust.

Happy Stamping!

I love the Emporium paper and stamp choice for the last card. I never would have put them together, but I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks!
