Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #63

This week's sketch is perfect for those 4.25 x 4.25 inch cards that I love to make. I actually made two samples for this sketch. Another easy one I think!? What do you think? Here is the sketch......

My first sample is 100% current Stampin Up! I love this Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, it is so easy to work with and has beautiful sentiments with it. The papers are chosen from the scraps laying next to my cutter from the last few days of creating.

Stamps: Thoughts And Prayers
Paper: Chocolate Chip,Kiwi Kiss and Whisper white card stock along with Kiwi Kiss and So Saffron dp
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: markers, ribbon, sizzix tag die, large oval punch, three for you punch, So Saffron brads

The next card is a sneak peek of my sneak peeks. I am having so much fun with the new sets that will be released from SUINK on April 1st. I think I have 6 cards made already with them. I will be sharing another one with this same set in the morning--so this is kind of a sneak of that sneak peek, lol.

This new set is called Welcome to the Zoo! It is jam packed with adorable images. I created this litle scene with a few of the images.

Stamps: Welcome to the Zoo
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, DCWV Animal Cracker Stack, So Saffron DP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: word window punch, circle punches, Copics

So I hope you are inspired to play along! I know there will be lots of fabulous samples for you to check out through out the week, so please be sure to come on back to this post and see who has added their link. And of course if you play along (and I hope you will) please add your DIRECT link to Mr Linky below. When uploading on-line please use the keyword TSSC63. Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Thanks for everything!

That first card is just BEAUTIFUL! both cards are GREAT, but that one is STUNNING!
I can't fit a card into 4.25" parameters. My cards keep getting bigger and bigger. Soon I will have 12" square cards! LOL!

I love your Praying for you card---can't belive I still dont have that set!
Your layout is perfect for a card OR a s/book page.
Hope I get to play this week--I fly to Calif on Sunday.
I'll post it as soon as I can, Nola

Two amazing creations! I love the beautiful layout and the wonderful peaceful colors of the first card. And your second card is just so fun. I adore the papers and the fun scene card!

Like I said before, this is a sketch that would work well for a scrapbook page---but that's not what I made! I turned mine around as I thought the little flowers would be better at the bottom. Mine is kinda funny, but it will work well for my class with some developmentally delayed adults on Thursday.
It's up and running--thanks for the great idea!
