Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #72

Here we go again! Another Monday but this one is going to be even more busy than most both on the blog and off, lol. So here is the TSSC72 sketch, I sure hope you will play along. It has been a bit low on players lately not sure if it is because everyone is busy or if you guys are getting sick of sketches==anyone have any input?

Anyway here is it in all its glory!

And of course my card. I forgot I had this set, it is not mine a friend let me borrow it even before she used it and she probably is wondering if I am EVER gonna give it back. I am glad I found it just in time for today's challenge card because it worked beautifully! I stamped pink and green on the tree and then used the same stamp to stamp the grass. I like the result.

The card is 100% current Stampin Up products.

Stamps: Branching Out and Sweet Little Sentiments
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Pink Piouette, Whisper White and Walk in the Park dp
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Piouette, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango and Basic Black
Other: flower fusion flowers, brads, large and small oval punches, Chocolate Chip marker.

Nice and sweet and simple, I like it.

Please consider playing along this week, we would love to see what you come up with. If you do don't forget to come on back and leave a DIRECT LINK (that is a link to the specific card not just the blog) on Mister Linky way down at the bottom of this post and I will come check it out and add it to the showcase on next Sunday. Please use the keywords TSSC72 when posting on line.

And don't forget to come on back in the morning for your chance to win 5 brand new stamp sets while you are being inspired to create! Monday is our SUINK Sneak Peek Blog Hop and you can win the entire release by hopping along with us--believe me you don't want to miss this.

That's right you can win the entire collection of stamps that are being released in June
from Storage Units Ink and More (SUINK)!

There are Five Fabulous new sets coming out and you can be the lucky winner of the whole sha-BANG!

We will be showcasing the sets with a sneak peek blog hop starting bright and early on June 1st. All you have to do to be eligible to win the stamps is to hop along with us and leave a comment on each designer's blog along the way. You will hop through 9 designer's blogs that will be showcasing the new sets and then finish off at the SUINK blog to leave your final comment telling us which stamp set is your favorite. That's it! And the whole sha-BANG can be yours.

The blog hop begins at 9:30 am EST on June 1st. The first blog you will visit will be

Laura at Lu-La's Corner

and you will be able to follow links from there.

Denise will be picking a winner on June 2nd so you have until 12 midnight (EST) on June 1st to get you comments in. When the winner is picked we will verify that they have indeed left a message on each blog and if they did they will be crowned the winner! If not we will pick another name until we find one that left a comment on all the blogs.

Believe me there will be some fabulous eye candy at each stop. And don't worry if you don't win, because through out the month the team will be giving away sets on their blogs too!

You got to be in it to win it!


Finally I am behind on quite a few challenges so I need to get my butt busy. Plus I need to speak at all services (5) at church this weekend so that will consume some time too. Next week we will be totally back on track, I hope.

Happy Stamping Everyone!
See ya on the flip side.

Cute, thanks for another great sketch.

Ooohhh love this card, Mary Jo! I personally like easy sketches. If I see a sketch with a bunch of little panels or a lot of different things on it, I tend to shy away from them. I don't have 8 hours to spend on a single card to fit a complicated sketch, so I look for quick and easy ones. Does that help?

That said, I love this sketch, and I'm printing it out to see what I can do with it. Crossing my fingers that I can find some time after work to play with this tonight. :-)
