SKETCH CARD CHALLENGE AT STAMPIN' CONNECTION!

Happy Wednesday all!! I have been VERY busy stamping away this past week and have just not had the time to post - not enough hous in the day, LOL! But, I finally had time to sit down and do my sketch card for this week's challenge - the sketch is actually mine this week but my team-mates bailed me out by posting some samples for the sketch :-)  This is mine - I used a Hostess Set called Silouette Sentiments and paired it with the beautiful Greenhouse Gala designer paper.  I just love the colors in this paper, they are soooo yummy together!!! And, since I have Early Espresso now my poor Chocolate Chip has been neglected so I will need to get it back out and play with it, LOL!  I used my stampin' write markers to color my images in so that my card had a soft watercolor look and feel to it and then sponged around the bottom of my image with Pear Pizzazz ink.  The top of the card was lightly sponged with Baha Breeze ink to add some dimension. It also makes the card soft which I love :-) I kept my card simple, but I still think it is pretty.  I have a friend that this card will go to - she lost her mom this week and I know she is hurting so I wanted to send her a card and let her know I am thinking about her!  Super quick post today as I have lots to do to get ready for my big Harvest Craft Festival next weekend and some fun classes! I made a promise to myself though that I am going to take the time to share my creations here and check out what all of you have been doing - I miss blurfing!!!  I hope you all are having a fabulous week and thanks soooo much for hanging in here with me and stopping by - please leave me a comment to let me know you were here!!!! Until tomorrow, Happy Stampin'!
