Blog Sketches and Challenges

Fridays are such a fabulous day! Not just because it's the weekend but because there are blog sketches to be done! YAH!
The first one is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I haven't used Bronc Buster for months and thought it would work out GREAT for today's sketch. The image was stamped on Very Vanilla with Choc Chip Craft and then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I sponged all the Sage Shadow with Creamy Caramal and a little Choc Chip. I think the rest is pretty straight forward.
Today I happened to browse and see that Amy had a sketch posted on her blog Prairie Paper and Ink! Also Sharon from No Time To Stamp? had a challenge to use scallops on a card. Yah! Two for me! I love that!
I made my card a 5.5 x 5.5 square. I really like doing them. I know they cost more to mail but who cares ;) I had the Snowbunny Bella stamped for a bit so thought I'd use her. It's STILL winter in my part of the country and probably will be for two more months. So this card can be used for sometime...lol
I used the WinterBright SSK and some misc felt brads that Brian gave me for Christmas. I had wanted to use Fun Flock on the pink fluffies but...I don't have pink I guess. Red, greens, blues, white, orange,yellow, black....but apparently no pink...ugh!
Thanks for stopping by today! I did do the SCS Limited Supplies Challenge and will try to post those cards later. If not tonight, tomorrow for sure!
Have a FAB weekend!
