I {heart} these sketches!

Good Sunday Morning!
I am so happy it's Sunday and that I got all my chores done yesterday! I dusted, vacuumed, did laundry, cleaned the bathroom, did dishes, washed the car and grocery shopped....all before Noon! Pretty good eh?
You know what that meant? STAMP time!
I haven't been able to play along with Jen's sketches in a few weeks so I was happy to get to it this week. As I was planning what I was going to use, I looked over at the box of Silver HPH and knew I'd have to use some for sure ;) What good is it sitting there collecting dust?!
Stamps:Flight of the Butterfly; Cardstock: Choc Chip, Pink Pirouette, WW and Bella Rose DP; Inks: Choc Chip, Pink Pirouette; Accessories: Nesties, Embossing Folder, Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Silver HPH, Misc Buttons, Dimensionals
I'm so glad that Beate is back doing her sketch challenges! I didn't have much time on Friday to play along but I certainly made time yesterday! This DP is from American Crafts and I picked it up at Archiver's while in Boise. Not sure why I didn't order any DP to go with Pacific Point last time but I'll be sure to add it to my next order. I really like the Pacific Point :)
This card measures 4.25 x 8.5

Stamps: Boatloads of Love; Cardstock: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, WW, WC paper, American Crafts DP; Inks: Black Stazon, Pacific Point, SU! markers; Accessories: Aqua Painter, Nesties, Word Window Punch, Sm and Lg Oval Punches, Pacific Point Ribbon, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!

Your cards are all beautiful but I gotta tell you that the pink butterfly card is my favorite. What
a beautiful card!

Oh how I LOVE that pink card! We are remodeling my bathroom and it is painted a soft pink like that & I just adore butterflies. We are putting in the floor today (I'm on an email reading break). The silver accents are fabulous (go along with the gray slate floor we're installing). Those colors are so cool together!
Every time you use that ship of yours, I think about buying that set, again. You have done so much with it! Great job with both, as usual!!!

Love how you used the Hodgepodge Hardware on the first card--I need to use some of mine, too. And, I love the patterned paper you picked to go with the boat image. It's just perfect!
