3 down, 1000's to go!

Ever feel like you will NEVER get caught up!  Yea, me too.  I am trying to get caught up on some challenges I have been wanting to get to but can's seem to get enough time.  Why or why do we have to do silly things like cook, clean, laundry--you know what I am getting at!  Our days should be filled with stamping and nothing more--except for spending time with my son--he can stamp with me, lol!

Anyway, I was able to get three challenges done!

The sketch challenge on Stampin Connection
The Stampin Connection Technique Challenge--emboss resist.

This first one is for the 411 sketch....

Stamps: Close as a Memory
Paper: Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, ribbon, sponges

This next card is a combo of the sketch and technique challenges on Stampin Connection (US demo only site)

Stamps: Whimsical Words, Medallion 
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Glossy White
Ink: VersaMark, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Other: Sweet Pea felt, oval punch, scallop oval punch, white embossing powder, embossing gun, brad, ribbons, sponges, white gel pen

Maybe I will get a few more done tomorrow?? Who knows my son is waiting for me again.

Love the sympathy card and the card with the fuzzy pieces, that little pink bow is awesome.

I love them both, but the first card is stunning!! I am a purple freak (so 'nuf said), but it really is a jaw-dropper!

I am in love with your second card here. The Medallion is so pretty and I love the large focal point, set off by those cute little felt flowers. Nice job!

Both cards are awesome! I agree though, why do we have to do chores when there is so much more fun stuff to do?
