Blog Sketches

I was kind of bummed this morning when I saw the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge. You are to use the new Basic Grey Paper from SU! Well I'm not much of a grey or black card person so I haven't ordered any of that cardstock. So I'll be sitting this challenge out unfortunately. I will go and comment on the others cards this afternoon. Maybe I'll be inspired to order it next time!
Onto my cards here then.
This card below is for a sketch challenge #18 on Desperate Stamper's Blog. Be sure to check it out! I'm enjoying doing the card sketches when I can. I'm missing the flowers already. Mine are almost all pulled out of the ground and pots. Let's hope for a SHORT winter and an EARLY spring!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Just Like You
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Gable Green and WW
Inks: Same as above
Accessories: Slit Punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, MayArts Ribbon, 3 D glue dots and Dimensionals
Yesterday I made another card for the SC142 on SCS but by the time I had a chance to take a picture of this card, it was dark...LOL
Where do the days go sometimes??? Especially here in Central Alberta. I'm dreading waking up in the dark(sort of do that now) and cooking dinner in the dark(5pm)....lol

Stamp Set: The Snowflake Spot
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Almost Amethyst, WW
Inks: Elegant Eggplant, VersaMark
Accessories: Organdy Ribbon, Heat and Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Round Tab Punch and Dimensionals, Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder
