Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #8

Wow! Can you believe it has been eight weeks already! Time flies when you are having fun and I am having fun with these. It has been wonderful to see everyone's creations and as usual I thank you for participating. Hope you have fun with this one.


I made two cards for todays sketch and kept them both quite simple actually. This one uses the new set in the Occasions mini catalog called For Father. Is that dog not the most precious thing you ever seen? The inside of this card says ALREADY, because I am giving it to someone who is moving away. Other supplies used are: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Carmel and Whisper White card stock. Outlaw paper (retired), black brads, small and large oval punches, colored pencils and blender pen. Basic Black and Chocolate Chip ink.




This next card is of course my favorite set -- Pun Fun!. This is just such a useful set. I have made quite a few cards with it and have not even come close to running out of ideas. The base of this card is Basic Black followed by Whisper White, Basic Grey and then some dark Grey paper from Scrap in a Snap (yikes, that is a blast from the past). The "stink" is from the Bronc Buster set! I think it is so cute. I went over it with a clear gel pen to make it stand out more. The little flowers in the corner are pearly sequins with red brads in the middle. Other items used: Real Red card stock, small and large oval punches, word window punch, square scallop punch, ric rack ribbon, half pearl and Prima flower.





And now on to the other participants for this weeks sketch. These guys rock! You will want to check out each and every one of their blogs to see what they have in store for you this week.
