Saturdays sketches

Yah! It's Saturday! I love the weekends...LOL!
This morning Chloe and I headed out to do a few errands and of course we HAD to stop at the LSS. I found some new stamps from Inque Boutique for a pretty good price. So I thought I would try them out. Figured if they didn't work that great I wouldn't be out too much money. Turns out they work pretty darn good. Not so well on WC paper but then it's always hit and miss if you don't ink and press properly. I used them on my second card.
Onto the sketches I did!
This first one is from Lauren's blog. I didn't get my center panel quite long enough or rather the DP layer is too big...haha! Either way it's a little different. I like how this one turned out! I need a baby card for one of the teachers who recently had a little girl. I always seem to do PINK for girls and wanted it to be different this go round ;)
Stamps: Wild About You
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, WW and Celery Prints Paper
Inks: Barely Banana, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, 1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1 1/8", 1/2" Circle punch
Here is the card I made using those new stamps. They are from Inque Boutique and called Bunnies and Chicks. I also used a little chick from last years Bunny Hugs by SU!
Be sure to check out this sketch by Jen on her blog! I added a little extra layer with the sentiment. My Designer Paper layer was placed a little low so I didn't have room to stamp at the bottom.
