Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 92

Well, the CROP Walk went off fairly well! We had no rain and it was a pleasant fall day. Little chilly but not too bad. I will guess that we will end up with about 8-9 thousand dollars when done. Not our best year but not bad considering the economy! Now it is time for me to get ready for the Chili Cookoff/Bake off that I coordinate at our church to add more funds to the CROP walk. This is one of my favorite functions of the year--I love chili and the deserts for the bake off have been fabulous--to die for! Even after all that chili. There are still a few more days for you to get in on the prize package for the online donations. For just a $5 donation you will be entered to win more than $500 worth of Stampin Up stamps and supplies. Some from the new catalog, some old and hard to find and some that you may or may not have from various SAB and Hostess sets. But there is so much more than just the 18 stamp sets. You got to be in it to win it. I will be picking a winner on the announce the winner on the 20th. You have until October 19th 12pm EST to donate. Thank you so much for putting others first.


And now for this week's sketch. I used the MDS to make this sketch. What do you think? I really am enjoying playing with this new program but I have not had too much time with it yet. I hope you will play along. There are no real rules other than making a card and posting a link on Mister Linky below! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Due to time constraints this week I chose to combine this with the Latenight Stamper's Challenge for the new week. So you are getting a sneak peek at this week's challenge. I won't be posting it until tomorrow on the group. Shhhhh. I made this color challenge logo with the MDS too!
Here is my first card.

Stamps: Bright Blessing Jumbo Wheel and Trendy Trees
Paper: Old Olive, Really Rust, Whisper White, Ruby Red dp from hostess collection
Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red, Really Rust, Old Olive
Other: marker, tag punch, circle punches, ribbon

The next card is obviously using the same colors and layout but looks quite a bit different, don't you think?

Stamps: Friendly Words, Jumbo Wheel, Only Ovals
Paper: Old Olive, Really Rust, Whisper White, Ruby Red dp from hostess collection
Ink: Really Rust, Old Olive
Other: brads, white gel pen, Flower Fusion, circle punch, wide oval punch

That is it for tonight! I am exhausted. See ya tomorrow if all goes well, lol.

Well I got to play too! I used one of the same sets you did---and the same colors as in the LNS #42 too, so it's a 2-4-1!
Thanks for the great sketch--Love it!
