Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #12

Already a dozen weeks have pasted since I started these sketches. It never ceases to amaze me how fast the weeks and month and even years, for that matter, go by. A very nice older gentleman once told me to be thankful that the time go by as fast as it does because there are so many people who just dread each and every day and the days just drag by so slowly that they pray for them to end. When time goes fast it means you are living a full and joyful life! What a blessing that man was to me in the few minutes we chatted at the YMCA. So much insight and so willing to share. So I thought I would share it with you too.

Remember a while ago when my whole house got the flu, well that was how long ago I sent this sketch to the players so they would have it early. During that time I did not have time nor did a feel up to creating new sketches so as with last week's sketch this sketch was sent to me by Kerry at Three Clover Designs who just happens to be in the process of a root canal at this very moment - hope everything is going well Kerry! If you have a sketch you would like to see us use feel free to send it to me at technostamper@roadrunner.com. Now, on to the sketch......




And of course here is my sample using the sketch.......



I loved the retired Outlaw paper so much that I did not want to use this new Western Sky paper that I have had for almost two months and it was not even open! But I have to admit that I do like it now that I used it. Hope you enjoy it too.

Stamps: Wanted and the Designer Label set from the old punch box
Paper: Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, River Rock and the Western Sky Designer Series papers
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Designer Label punch, cuttlebug embossing folder, nestibilities dies, and the HodgePodge Hardware from the spring mini.


Now for the other players this week.......


Lisa at Splendiferous Creations


Kerry at Three Clover Designs



Pat at the Technique Trail


Brenda at Memories by Brenda


Claudia at Stamping in Columbus, GA


Margaret at Fun Stampin' with Margaret



Kim at Kim's Basement Stamping



So how is that for some inspiration? Should have you just dying to go and stamp, don't forget to comment here when you are done so I can share it with everyone. If you post on SCS please use the key word TSSC12. Hope you have a wonderful day -- the sun is out here!!! YIPPEE!!

Hey MJ! Thanks so much for this awesome sketch! This is my first time playing and I loved it! You can count on me coming back! :D Here is my take on the sketch. I do need to tell you that I accidently glued my dp on upside down though so the sketch is reversed. I hope that's ok! Thanks again! I love your version!
