Sketch Challenges

Thank goodness it is the weekend and I don't HAVE to go outside if I don't want to! It's been so chilly here and it looks like that weather is going to continue for a bit longer....
Chloe has gone off with the neighbour to see that new movie Enchanted...hope she has a blast!
I had some time while the laundry was going to work on a couple of sketch challenges. This first one is from Lauren's sketch. Be sure to check it out! I used the retired set called Yule Bits and Borders.
Jen from i{heart}2stamp had a great sketch on her blog today too! I so enjoy doing these girls Saturday sketches. Sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day to do them on Saturdays but today I was lucky ;)
Not sure about any of you but I always have issues with Real Red and drying....you can see in BOTH cards that I smeared it! UGH!
I am going to miss this set Flaky Friends. I LOVE these guys!
Hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!

Smearing? I don't see any smearing! Both of these cards are FABULOUS! So darn cute and festive!

Now, I'm not a movie person, but the family took me to see Enchanted last weekend ... it was so-o-o enjoyable! Chloe is going to LOVE it! If you get a chance to see it, DO!!!! It's one of those feel good movies!

These are great! The red is so bright and cheery. I have the same problem with my red ink--I've had the ink pad for 4 years and I've never reinked it, but it still takes forever to dry and almost always smudges. . .
