Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #43

Boy oh boy each and every week seems to go faster than the last. I still have a lot to do tonight so I am posting a bit early since I may forget later, lol. So here is this week's sketch....


The sketch lends itself to both easy and more detailed cards, I think mine are pretty easy. I am going to be using both for an all occasions class tomorrow. The first one is done with the Lovely as a Tree set and chalks. I feel like we are too late for fall but I am so not ready for winter yet.



Stamps: Lovely as a Tree and Pocket Silhouettes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White. Scraps of dp from two different packs.
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: large chocolate brads, word window punch, chalks, cuttlebug hounds tooth folder, white gel pen

This next card I am not sure about. I used to use this color combo a lot a long time ago but it just seems so "out" now. Is is just me, can colors not look good together any more when they did before?? Incredible how our taste changes so rapidly in the stampin realm. Anyway, I needed a sympathy card and I know the person likes purples so this is what I came up with. Not too fancy not too bulky.

Stamps: Close as a Memory, Mini Mates
Paper: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Mellow Moss and Whisper White.
Ink: Perfect Plum
Other: markers, button sizzix die, ribbon, mini white faux brads, cuttlebug eb folders, nestabilities.

So that is it for tonight. I have a million things to do and only a few hours before I pass out, lol!

Hope you find some time this week to play along. If you upload to a online gallery please use the key words TSSC43, and don't forget to leave me a comment with a link so I can share with everyone else. Check back around noon EST to see what the team did with the sketch.

This is a great sketch, Mary Jo--I may try it again later this week. I really like your sample. I know what you mean about the colors. I used to use that combo a lot, but don't use it too often anymore. Here's my card using this sketch: http://inkingaloud.blogspot.com/2008/11/meet-cupcake-flopsey.html

I love your cards - it's not too late for fall cards and the purple one is beautiful! My favorite color combination. I like the sentiment "I'm sorry" instead of the traditional "With Sympathy".

Here's my card:
