Saturday Challenges

Good Saturday Morning!
Today I have a card for you that combines our Our Creative Corner Challenge with Lauren's Saturday Sketch. It's great when you can combine two challenges if time is limited ;)
Amy is our September hostess at the OCC and she asked us to make a card with stitching. It could be hand, machine or faux BUT it could not be white ;)
Ok ok...so I used white but only because I couldn't figure out how to load another bobbin in my machine...haha...soooooooooooooo I sponged it with Sage Shadow ink. I think it turned out pretty good considering I do NOT sew. The Always stamp set goes pretty darn good with the Autumn Vine DP. I coloured it with my SU! markers to match.
Check out the OCC girls blogs to see their creations and details.
Don't forget if you upload to SCS to use the keywords OCCC so we can find ya!
Hop on over to Lauren's blog to see her fun sketch! Then pop by the Saturday sketch teams blogs to see what they cooked up too!
If you upload a card with this sketch please use keywords mytimess07.
Stamps: Pretty Amazing and Best Yet; Cardstock: Really Rust, Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow, Choc Chip, WW and Autumn Vine DP; Inks: Creamy Caramel, Choc Chip, Sage Shadow, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa; Accessories: Circle punches, Circle Nesties, Choc chip Grosgrain, Gold Elastic cord, Sponges, Embossing Folder, Quickie Glue pen and Gliter, Dimensionals
Friday meant it was time for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I was able to combine it with the Limited Supply Challenge on SCS. This week we were to make a holiday card with a critter and the only embellishment we could use was ribbon. Perfect for Beate's sketch! Luckily, Christine from All That Scraps had sent me this Lulu's Sweet Delights set since I didn't own any CC Design holiday stamps. That was sweet of her!
Stamps: Lulu's Sweet Delights; Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, WW and My Mind's Eye DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Circle Nesties, Baja Ribbon, Dimensionals
Today starts some new sneak peeks from Storage Unit, Inks & More! Hop on over to Lauren and Bethany's blogs to see what is up!
Thanks for stopping by today!
I will be back later to show you something made with my new LONG Rectangle Nesties that I picked up from Peggy(waving Hi Peggy) last night. You can find them and many other goodies at her online store PaperWorksCo.
