Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 80

Can't believe we are ready to begin another week already. Geez this entire month has just vanished before my eyes. Time goes so stinkin fast! The good news is that it is time for a new sketch challenge. I hope you will play along. I liked this one so much I already have three samples for you! Here is the sketch.

My first card is using the new hostess set Country Morning and a strange color combo. I really like it though. Wish you cold see the details on the bottles, that have a glossy finish on them looks cool.

Stamps: Country Morning and the Bright Blessing Wheel
Paper: Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White and Razzleberry Lemonade dp
Ink: Going Grey, Basic Black
Other: white gel pen, tag corner punch, circle scissors plus, markers, ink pads and water brush

The next two samples are also part of the new week's challenge on Latenight Stampers. This week Connie and I are the hosts and we chose to do a Christmas in July theme. I can not tell you how happy I was when I seen that this set made the new catalog. I love it.

Stamps: Cardnial Christmas
Paper: Real Red, Whipser White, Merry Moments dp
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive
Other: markers, white gel pen, wide striped old olive ribbon

And now I had to try the sketch on the side. I used the new set Scenic Season for this one. I love these trees.

Stamps: Scenic Season, Cardnial Christmas
Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Merry Messages dp
Ink: Old Olive, Basic Black
Other: gel pen, ink pad with water brush, scallop edge punch, markers, circle scissors plus, ribbon, brad.

And in case that was not enough inspiration for you here is a card made by Kim where she used the sketch upside down! Be sure to check out her whole post at Kim's Basement Stamping.
So I know you are itching to get stamping now! So hurry up and get your samples made and then rush back over here to add you name to Mister Linky below. You can use the keywords TSSC80 when posting on line. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Guess which nerd is first again?

LOVE your cards, MJ! I especially like how you added details behind your circle images with the leaves on the cardinal being my favorite with that idea!
