I know its not Saturday anymore – well not here at least – but I did have one of the cards done – just didnt get time to upload it!

Its been a busy week with hubby’s 50th Birthday, a Stamp A Stack, a Demonstration and yesterday was Emily’s 10th birthday and party at one of the local Ten Pin Bowling alley! Man those places are noisy – especially when there are 13 10 year olds running and squealing around the place!! Its one place I’m glad I dont work at!

sketch43Here is this week’s sketch for the Utah Divas Sketch Challenge.

First response by me was ‘oh no more circles!’  Once I got past that then I had a couple of ideas in my head (not much room for too many more!!)

Here is my first card …

I couldnt help myself here – I had to ‘adjust’ the sketch just so that Carol knows I’m ok!


This is a very easy card to do and I’m quite impressed with the outcome.

The set I’ve used is Snow Swirled and its a recent purchase for this years’ Christmas Card and Stamp A Stacks. The only images I’ve used here are the sentiment and the two snow flakes that I’ve stamped in White Craft Ink and clear embossed.

The main panel of the card is using patterned papers from the new Ski Slope Designer Series Paper pack available in the Spring Mini Catalogue.  Super easy card that anyone can make and I’ll prove it if you invite me over for a demonstration!!

Now for the second card ….

I figured I should make two cards considering I am late with posting – hopefully that will smooth things with the sketch coordinator 😉

I also wanted to use a different colour combination than my usual and chose this one that I found on the Stampin Up Demonstrator site – they always give us a colour combination chart for the current In Colours and I really liked this combo – mind you its not that different from my blue/brown combo I love.


DSC43-BajaChocSaffronRustSilhouettesI’ve adjusted the circles and made them ‘elongated‘ circles – or commonly known as Ovals 😉

I love this little Pocket Silhouettes set and really should use it more!

I’ve stamped the stems int he main panel in So Saffron onto Vanilla and layered that onto chocolate chip and then Really Rust. The sentiment is stamped in Baja Breeze and the other stem is stamped in really rust. I’ve used my oval punches to punch the images out and layer them.

Hope you like today’s challenge cards … now its time to prepare for tomorrow’s Stamp A Stack and finish off a new Christmas Card
