Another Great Sketch!

Here is another fun sketch from Skipping Stones Designs.....I'm hooked!!
The card above is my take on the sketch using their "Chick Chat" set.
Super cute!! I used the rockin' Cosmo Cricket papers, I colored my little
chick with copics, and added Petaloo flowers (center is cardstock with
Arctic Ice stickles!) and some bling (a girl's gotta have her "bling"!).

Still plan on pics from CKC.....just need to download, and stop making
cards for a minute! I've made cards for the Cutter's Creek Design
Team Blog too, so next week make sure to check it out and leave me
a comment! (it's at www(dot)cutterscreekdesignteam(dot)blogspot(dot)com).
More coming soon!

Back from CKC!!

Well, my sis and I are back from CKC, and can I just say.....if you ever get a
chance to go, take it!! We had a blast! The classes, crops, contests, everything
was beyond expectations! I even won 1st in the convention wide card contest
from Paper Crafts Magazine!! My card will be posted on the CKC blog in the
next few weeks!

Now that I'm back, I have a lot of catching up to do! First off, I just had to
make a card for the sketch challenge on the Skipping Stones Design website!
The birthday card above is my entry for sketch # ssd 32. I used the
"Gray Hares" set and the "You Know Your Gettin' Old Birthday" set.
Check out their website, the stamps are awesome!

I'll be back with more pics from my CKC adventures, just wait until you see
the rockin' pages and projects from the classes! So be sure to check back soon!!!

(PS I'm the one on the right in the photo!!)

More Chocolatey Goodness!!

Well, I'm off to CKC!!! So excited, and can't wait to share all the fun
techniques and goodies I find there!! So I won't be posting this next
week, but in the meantime, check out Skipping Stones Design's blog hop!!
They also have a sketch of the week, and this card is made using that sketch!
Skipping Stones has wonderful stamp sets, with the cutest sayings!
I stamped this card using their Chocolate #1 set, cocoa memento ink,
and then shaded the chocolate with some of this the ink. The background
behind the sentiment is Tim Holtz alcohol inks......ginger, latte, raspberry
and currant and the pearls are a beautiful raspberry camera
