PPA 133- Sketch Challenge

I got a few minutes to play the PPA Sketch Challenge this week.  I dusted off my Gnome Sweet Gnome set and put my thinking cap on.  I thought this set was adorable and was super excited to earn it for free through the Stampin' Up Book-A-Thon last December (another perk of being a demonstrator).  I hope you enjoy it!

PPA132- Color Challenge

Saige's 1st birthday has come and gone (more on that in another post) and I had some time last night to actually play around in my stampin' stash.  I really liked the colors in the PPA challenge this week so I was happy to carve out a little time.  I pulled out the Kindness Matters stamp set that I got for free during Sale-A-Bration (but you can still buy it from the catalog).  Have I mentioned that I love Sale-A-Bration?  I got so many great FREE items this year!  Back to the card... I felt like this set with Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip was the perfect combo.  I must have been channeling my inner Ann Schach because I distressed the edges and added pearls (I even thought about getting out the spritzer tool, but decided I had done enough).

If you have any questions I'm just an email away!
Here are a few photos from the obligatory Texas Bluebonnets photo shoot :)  She had been fussy all day long, but once we got her outside she was happy just to sit and eat the flowers.  he he.
