ANOTHER SKETCH CARD - I AM ON A ROLL!

Hi all! Well, first I want to tell you that I had a fabulous time yesterday with my scrapbook group - what a fun bunch of gals!! Nope, did not get tons done, but boy, I sure enjoyed the social interaction! But, I do have a card to share that I did for Jen's Saturday sketch - and I totally love this sketch and will use it again! She always offers a fabulous sketch challenge on Saturdays and I try and do them as often as I can. So, for this one I decided to go monochromatic because I love the look. I used all the shades of brown I could get my hands on and stamped with my One of a Kind Stamp set - one of my favorites because I just love the sentiments it comes with! I also used my Boho Blossoms punch which fits the stamp for this set perfectly (well, it was designed to do that, teehee!) Love, love, love that punch! I made this card with a special person in mind so I hope she likes it! I will leave you with the recipe for this one since it is pretty self-explanatory and as always, if you have any questions, just drop me a line! Now, I also want to update you on some exciting news I shared with you all a few days ago in this post: remember I told you I was selected to design the July kit for Jen over at Coconuts?? Well, it is all done and it is FABULOUS if I do say so myself (well, and Jen said so too, LOL!) And, she is going to offer preorders for those interested....so I will be giving you some sneak peeks over the next few days just to get those juices flowing - just don't drool on my blog - teehee!! Seriously gals, this is a FUN kit and it is so versatile you can do TONS with it! And, if you are a big scrapper like me, you will LOVE playing with the goodies in this kit! And yep, I did include stamps....I mean, really, did you have to ask??!! So, here is the hint: the name of the Kit is "Lovin' Liberty"......and it is totally ROCKIN'! So, head on over there and tell her I sent ya! And, stay tuned for some sneak peeks over the next week or so! Toodles!
