Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #33

Happy Labor Day to all of you! I am so sorry to see our short Summer come to an end already. The kids go back to school on Thursday and then it will seem like a couple of weeks and BOOM! it will be Christmas! How crazy is that. I wish the kids had just a little longer of a break from school, it goes so darn fast. But of course I will have a wee bit more stamping time during the days. Anyway, here is this weeks sketch....

I really like the sketch and think it is a easy one to work with. There are so many possibility with it. I was quite a lazy stamper and did not even get up from my chair for this card. All of the stamps and paper were within reach of my spot! The only think I had to move for was the cuttlebug bubble type embellishment. I have not been able to put down these new in colors - insert "no kidding, Mary Jo" here, lol. It seems like every card I make has this Kiwi Kiss color on it. The colors this year are really fun. So here is my very un-traditional Halloween card, which by the way hubby hates!

I didn't think it was so bad, different yes, but not really bad?!? What do you think?

Stamps: Haunting Halloween
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red Basic Black, Whisper White and Bella Rose DP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: cuttlebug, white gel pen, colored pencils, gamsol, faux brads, stampin sponge.

Feel free to play along we would all love to see your creations so after you make your card leave a comment here with a link that I can share with my readers!

I love your samples, Mary Jo! The cake card is so cute. I got that set at convention last year and haven't used it since--I really should pull it out. Here's my card for this week's sketch:

I just could not bear to miss out on this sketch even without the prize package but the prize package was surely a motivator!

I hope this is ok, the square in the middle is hiding under the butterfly! And the ribbon for the strip across is covered a bit too.

Pink Butterfly
