Good Thursday Morning!

Good Morning!

Did you happen to stop by the OCC blog yesterday to see Julee's mid-week challenge?

I decided to make a second card using her Vintage Values technique.

This is almost a SU! only card, except I got lazy and decided to use the butterfly punch instead of cutting some out....lol

Stamps: Best Yet, Amazing; Cardstock: Really Rust, Choc Chip, WW and Autumn Vine DP; Inks; Choc chip, Creamy caramel, Sage shadow, Really rust; Accessories: Sponges, Martha butterfly punch, Choc poly twill, Dimensionals

Wednesday also brought the Sketch Challenge on SCS. After doing a little bit of running around in the morning for school stuff, I came home to make a quick card before heading to the school to work.

I wanted to use a stamp from SUINK's Vote for Me that I hadn't inked up yet.

It's PINK week on SCS but I couldn't quite get pink to work here....lol

We had our election here in Canada last week but I'll send this off to Denise at SUINK to use.

Stamps: Vote for Me; Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, WW, Core'dinations Blue and Maine Blueberry DP; Inks: Memento Black, Old Olive; Accessories: Copics, Large Star Punch, 1/2" and 3/4" circle punch, Dimensionals, Mat pack and Paper piercer



Thanks for stopping by today!
