Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challene 248 (TSSC248)

Yippee!  I am so excited to say that we are finally back up and running with my weekly sketch challenges!  And we are better than ever--I have a new team of designers that are going to blow your socks of each and every week--I am amazed at the talent.  You will love all the creative ideas.  So be sure to play along and  tell you friends to play along too!

A few quick rules to playing

  • New sketch is posted each Monday morning and you have an entire week to play along. 
  • Top three will be picked on Monday morning as well and will be posted before the new sketch
  • Be sure to link directly to your card and not just to the home page of your blog--people will not take the time to look and you will not get any nice comments that way.
  • You can play along as many times as you want.  So if you love the sketch why not use it a few times and link each of them.
And now for this week's sketch....


Here is my sample using the new Secret Garden Stamp set and matching dies. I also combined it with this week's LNS challenge to use heart embossing--the flowers are embossed in black.

Stamps: Secret Garden, Vinatge Verses
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Sycamore Street DP
Ink: Basic Black, Versa Mark
Other: framelits,  black embossing powder, oval dies, markers

And the rest of the TSSC team samples...

will be posted on her blog later due to weather issues

That coin in your sidebar is misleading. "In god we trust" was added to US money in 1956.
