Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 286 (TSSC286)

Hope you had a great week.  Mine was really good and really cold--we had lots of outdoor activities and it was cold and raining--feel a need to hibernate for a few days--too bad the schedule won't cooperate.

Hope you will find time this week to play along with us on my new sketch for the week.  It is a really fun one and the team --as always--did a great job!  Here is the sketch....

And my sample--I thought it would be fun to try to use non-traditional colors for a Fall card--it will also fit the LNS challenge to create fall cards we are on week two of that challenge and the SU only challenge to create Harvest cards.....

Crisp Cantaloupe, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Island Indigo.  What do you think?  Too much Crisp Cantaloupe?  The stamp set is the Harvest of Thanks from the Holiday Mini and the Teeny Tiny Wishes set .  Other items used are, word window punch, ribbon, brad, scallop edge punch and the Apothecary Accents framelits.

Now for the rest of the teams samples....

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 285 (TSSC285)

Another busy week around here.  I was able to get my tutorial up and running (see my side bar if you missed it) but I did not get much else done.  So many non-stamping things going on--I know what the heck is up with that!  Right?!

Anyway it is a new week and I have a new sketch for you to try!  Here it is....

A bit different than my normal sketches but I thought it would be a fun to mix it up a bit.  I chose to create a fall card for my sample as that is the challenge for the next two week's on the Latenightstamper's group!

I used my favorite fall set--Gently Falling!  So easy to work with this set ( I have a tutorial with this set on my side bar too).  I chose to keep my card simple.  The swirls are from a retired Christmas set. And the sentiment is from the Yippee Skipee set. The colors are Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango and Cherry Cobbler.  The only extras are the candy dots on the top--quick and cute card.  Now check out what the design team has done with the sketch....









I love that they showed so many different styles and seemed to hit on a bunch of different types of cards, fall, Christmas, love Halloween--they are just so creative!  Now it is your turn to play along. --don't forget to come on back and add you sample below.
Here are some general rules of play....


  1. You have a full week to play along!
  2. Create a new card using the sketch as your inspiration.
  3. Use any products you choose.
  4. Add your card to your blog or other on-line spot and link back to this challenge.
  5. Come back here and add a direct link to your sample for the challenge and NOT you home page of your blog--people will not look for your challenge card--trust me.
  6. And this one is not really a rule but a request--get rid of that word verification!  It makes it hard for us to comment on your samples.  It is easier for you to delete the spam then for us to jump through tons of hoops to comment.  If your put your comments on moderation you do not have to worry about spam--you will have the option to delete it BEFORE it ever goes on your blog so you will ALWAYS be safe!
  7. Have fun and tell you friends to play too!

    Thanks, Mary Jo
