Get Sketchy at 4 Crafty Chicks!!

So how has your week been going? Mine has been crazy so far. Tristan's Basketball team won their 3rd game 74-21 last night and Robin had a really great vocal lesson. This morning I woke up to it being so windy and the snow in our back yard is covered in nothing but spruce needles and branches that have fallen from the wind. So when I came down stairs this morning, it was directly to the computer and to my surprise I realized that my post didn't schedule last night and so it wasn't on here . Panic hit so I went to publish it and on my new lap top hit a button don't know which one and delete the whole thing *sigh*....LOL. I am trying to laugh because it could make me cry right now...*sigh*. So here is attempt number #2. The first one sounded way better *giggle*.

A huge THANK YOU goes out to the ladies who played in Lori's color and prize challenge last week. Your cards are really beautiful.

So this week at 4 Crafty Chicks we are on CHALLENGE #23. LEANNE our rockin host this week designed this awesome fabby SKETCH for us to create with. I love it and am going to make another with it. Leanne thank you so much for your awesome inspiration this week.

So with the perfect sketch this week, a perfect color combo is in order. I saw the colors at Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo's and knew instantly what cute stamp should be used. Thanks Samantha and girls for the great inspiration.

I was going to use buttons like in the sketch but when I was talking to Lori she told me that Totally Stampalicious has a really fun challenge this week of "Hello for no special reason" kind of card. No kidding, I need a card like this and have been procastinating (Even though I don't own any stamps that say hello or just because, I found the perfect one for me). Now I don't have a reason, it can go in the mail. Be sure to check out the fabby inspirations they have there too. The Paper Players challenge is ANYTHING GOES and BLOG HOP. I just want to play because I have missed the last few. Thanks ladies for another great challenge and will be blog hopping soon (love blog hops).


Recipe: Stamps: CC Designs and Verve; Paper: Old Olive, Daffoldil Delight, Marina Mist, whisper white and daffodil delight dsp; Ink: Vera Fine Black and Old Olive; Accessories: paper peircer, dimensionals, pearls, copics, SU markers, old olive ribbon, small & medium oval punches (SU), spellbinders scalloped and circle, Swiss Dots EF.

It seems that my cards have been really basic and kind of simple lately. I am not sure why, but I hope you like them anyway. My other crafty chicks have some really amazing cards this week please hop on over to their blogs and check them out and even share some love.
