Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #67

Well, this week sure went fast. My son's baseball started up and he had two practices, a scrimmage and two games this week! What the heck! This is his first year playing so we were not ready for all that, lol. We are having lots of fun with it though.

Anyway here is this week's sketch. Another circle. Did you guys notice I always seem to do things in groups. (Except for the arrows, I think Kerry and a few of the other girls would have quit one me) I have really been enjoying using circles since I got my new Circle Scissors Plus. Fun and easy.

I found this sketch a bit harder than the last few just because of the simplicity of it. Weird how sometimes simple is SO hard! I will only be sharing one sample with you now but I have three cards to share in my next post that will all be using the new And Many Mower stamp set and two of them will use this sketch so be sure to check that out. That will be part of the Occasions Mini Blog Tour I was telling you about. If you missed the details click HERE. You will definitely want to see all the great samples. I am even going to be giving away the And Many Mower set to one lucky person who is traveling along on our tour. Here is a picture of the set.

Be sure to come back in the morning to find out how you can win this set for FREE!

And finally here is my card for today. This set actually belongs to a friend of mine but she said I could play with it for a bit before she picks it up. How cool is that. This is the first card I have made with it and even though I am not totally thrilled with it I do like it. The set was easy and fun to play with. That is a real plus.

This is 100% current Stampin Up and part of the You're Hired Again Series.

Stamps: Branch Out, Really Retro
Paper: Pacific Point, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Good Morning Sunshine dp
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point
Other: Circle Scissors Plus, corner rounder

See ya in the morning for the Blog Tour--I can't wait to take the trip myself.

Also in the afternoon for the new Latenight Stamper's weekly challenge hosted by myself and Susan.

Good night,
Mary Jo

WOW! I found your site through the blog hop and after scanning through your site to see all your goodies, the Christian music began. What a blessing!! What an awesome way to minister to those who visit your site! Now I'll visit your site daily just to refocus on the Lord through music, creativity and scripture. Thanks! Tam in VA
