PPA 137- Sketch Challenge

I took a little time the other day to play the PPA sketch challenge.  I'm behind on printing out photos to scrapbook so I'm getting a little more time to make some cards.  I think this Betsy's Blooms set is one of my new catalog favorites.  I also played around with the new edgelits.  I didn't have any baker's twine in Midnight Muse so I made my own.  I read the tip on some blog or a Stampin' Success magazine (I can't remember, sorry), to just use the white twine and make marks on it with one of your markers.  I taped mine down on my craft space and will admit that I had blue hands after it was over, but I like the effect.  Thanks for stopping by.  If you have any questions just leave a comment or send me a an email.

PPA 136- Color Challenge

I know what you're thinking... wow, two posts in one week!  I know, I'm shocked too :).  It happened by accident.  I needed a Father's Day card and when I looked at the PPA color challenge my wheels started turning.  I had just gotten a box of Stampin' Up goodies and was anxious to try them out.  Here's what I came up with.  What do you think?

New stuff: Polka Dot Parade paper, Large Scallop edgelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon.
