Good Sunday Morning

Happy Sunday!
Last night my girlfriend, Sandy and I, went to the Edmonton Eskimos Football game(CFL) and we WON~! Yah! It was a blast! My throat hurts a little from all the shouting....haha!
Today I plan on watching the Nascar race(weather permitting), finishing the laundry and stamping!
Yesterday afternoon I sat down and worked on a couple of cards. The first one is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I've had this stamp set, A Tree For All Seasons, for a long time and think it's only seen ink twice...sad eh? I really do like the stamps but the images are small and I find them harder to work with. Beate's sketch was perfect for them!
I stamped the image with Timber Brown Stazon onto Watercolour Paper and used my Aqua Painter and inkpads(smooshed on the lid) to colour.
Stamps: A Tree for All Seasons; Cardstock: Old Olive, Kraft, WC paper and Haiku DP; Inks: Timber Brown Stazon, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust; Accessories: Aqua Painter, Choc Satin Ribbon, Old Olive Poly Twill, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Dimensionals
This next card is for Jen's sketch on her blog. There is an added bonus to doing the sketch this week and using a Stamping Bella image....you could possibly win a gift certificate to Stamping Bella! Yah! I pulled out the Snowbunny Bella and some new Imaginisce DP I picked up a few weeks ago. She's coloured with Copics. The fuzzy snowflake brads were given to me by my husband last year in my Christmas Stocking.

Stamps: Snowbunny Bella; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, WW and Imaginisce DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Embossing Folder, Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Felt Brads, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!

Two fabulous cards, Dawn. Glad you go to get out and watch some football. You Eskimo fans are amazing with that open stadium and cold temps in your area! We'll have a little friendly rivalry when BC and Edmonton play :)
