Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #73

Can you believe the kids only have two more weeks of school. Wow this year went by so fast and it was a very smooth year too. Got to love that. Anyway it is Monday and it is time for another sketch challenge. I received so many personal comments to continue the sketches so I sure hope we have a few more players, lol! I do enjoy doing the sketches either way but it sure would be even more fun if I had more players. I really like this week's sketch. I even made two cards right away. Here is the sketch....

My first card is a really bright masculine birthday card. I can not believe that this set did not make the new catalog. We really need more masculine sets. The good news is you can still get it until the end of this month. It is called Many Mower. I am on a mission to use all in color card stock and dp this month so that I don't have tons left when the new catalog starts. This is from the Good Morning Sunshine pack.

Stamps: And Many Mower
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Pacific Blue, Whisper White and Good Morning Sunshine dp
Other: Nestabilities, faux brads, markers, gel pen

Next is a girl baby card. This set is not retiring but the dp is. I used the Raspberry Tart dp. Another one I will miss. Love these colors.

Stamps: Last years sab set, Nursery Necessities,
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black, Rose Red
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Real Red, Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart dp
Other: Wide red ribbon, scallop circle punch, nestabilities, faux brads

If you chose to play along please remember to come on back and leave a link on Mister Linky below. I would love to see what you create. If uploading on line please use the key words--TSSC73.

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Hi MJ, I really like the sketch this week. I also really like Mr. Linky. This is a GREAT app. I lvoe how it opens the links in another window so I can just close them without losing my original page. I SOOO often forget that I am in a window I need to go back to instead of closing it. Or, I have to page back SOOO many pages to find the original site. Thanks for using Mr. Linky.

I love your baby girl card! What a nice change from the usual pink color combo :)

I finally had time to tackle this great sketch this week. Thanks for sharing!

Mary Jo-hope you get more players. I enjoy your site-have been lurking longer than playing-would hate to lose you. Hope my card is not to much of a copy cat.

I just squeaked in this sketch before I head out for the weekend.

I advertised for more players on my blog. I appreciate the time you take to make these.
