A great mix today...

Good Thursday Afternoon!
It's STILL raining here....now I'm getting bummed....this weather makes me so sleepy.
Before heading off to the school this morning to mark math and spelling tests I had a chance to work on the SCS Ways To Use it Challenge.
Masculine cards was the theme. Hope I pulled it off okay with this one ;)
Stamps: A Light Unto My Path and Sanded Background; Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Choc Chip and Vellum CS; Inks: Choc Chip; Accessories: Copper Brads and Dimensionals
Verve Visual has a May Project Parade going on. I LOVED the colours and you can see them in the photo below. I used the Fancy Florals Remixed but couldn't figure out what sentiment to add or where, so it'll be on the inside ;)
Stamps: Fancy Florals Remixed; Cardstock: PTI white, So Saffron, Old Olive, Cool Caribbean, Regal Rose, Cool Caribbean; Inks: same; Accessories: 5/8" Old Olive Ribbon, Dimensionals
Here is the colour chart in case you want to play along.
A couple of months ago I wanted to create a book for me to keep all the sketches I find on blogs, challenges or magazines in one spot. Well this is what I did....and then it got shoved in a pile and I'd forgotten all about it until today!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Excellent execution of the masculine card. I love it. I just finally bought that background stamp and can't wait to use it more.

Love the Verve project as well. Great job!

I love the idea of keeping a sketch challenge book, I am gonna have to copy that idea!!

Amy said...

Great post! I love the notebook. Do you just draw the sketches in it or do you print out stuff? I save so much to my computer that I liked the idea of having a book. I don't like to haul my laptop into my creative space! Great idea!
