Good Thoughts

Hello!  First, I would like to apologize for the lack of blogging.  I have been a very busy mom and really haven't had much time to stamp.  But I am grateful that I do get stamp as it is a great stress reliever.

Last night I was needing some stress relief, and headed to my stamping table. I knew I wanted to play along with a sketch challenge and headed over to the first one I saw called: Seize the Sketch.  I decided to play along.  Here's the challenge:

And here's what I made:

I wanted to use my Fresh Prints paper stack. I love that paper! Throw in some banners, and you have a cool, trendy card!
STAMPS: Perfect Pennants, Petal Parade (SAB set) and Banner Blast (SAB set).
INK: Versamark, Baked Brown Sugar, Real Red and Craft White.
PAPER: Baked Brown Sugar, Pool Party, Real Red and Whisper White
ACCESSORIES: Fresh Prints DSP, Pool Party and White Embossing powder, Banner Framelits, retired SAB embossing folder, Itty Bitty punch pack, Boho Blossoms punch, Baked Brown Ruffle Stretch Trim, Gold Bakers Twine, sponge daubers, White Gel Pen.

Well, back to busy mom stuff.  Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to stop for the next Dynamic Duos challenge on Saturday. Until then, happy stamping!
