December SFYTT!

Can you believe it? It's the last SFYTT of the year!!!! Jen has also decided to discontinue SFYTT, so it is the last sketch ever.  I spent a little more than a year on the team, and it was a blast! I'm really grateful for the opportunity I had to be a part of SFYTT. 
Our sketch for this month looks like this:
The sponsor for this month is none other than Splitcoaststampers! They are adding a year's subscription to the Fan Club Gallery to the prize pot.  The year-end prize will be going to one lucky SFYTT participant on Christmas Day, so get your December sketch linked up before then.  I can't wait to see who wins the ENORMOUS prize package!
On to my sample:
I used a Verve stamp, some PTI dies, and October Afternoon dsp in a non-traditional Christmas color scheme.
Make sure you check out Jen's blog for all the details, and let's go see what everyone made this month! Thanks for stopping by.

A Challenge With Friends

Last week, I was chatting with my friend Jackie on the phone, and we decided that we needed to start doing challenges with each other again. 
We did a whole whopping ONE before, haha! So we invited Lisa to join us, and here we go!
I issued the challenge to use either alphabet stamps or dies.  That's the only rule!  I was an overachiever just this once and made TWO cards for our challenge.
I used Vanity Plate from MFT, along with a bunch of stars and some masking and sponging.
Then I pulled out By the Letters dies (also by MFT) and made this: 
Thanks so much for stopping by, let's head out and see what my friends came up with!

Just For Fun

I got to do some stamping just for fun the other day, and this is what I made:
After I stamped the cozy, I ran my watercolor brush over each of them to blend some of the ink into the hearts.  And now that I look at this card, I should have added brads to the half circles.
And a quick little get well card:
The little bug is cut out and popped up.

September SFYTT #2

I'm back with another sample with this month's Sketch For You To Try.
Here's the sketch again:
I left the sketch alone this time, and used Fabby Flossy from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps once again.
I colored Flossy and cut her out, then colored and cut out the front layer of her pile of sweetness. I popped this layer up so it looks like she's really surrounded by her candy!

Head on over to Jen's blog for more inspiration and to link up your creation.  Thanks for stopping by!

Here's a little thank you card I made over the weekend:
I wanted to do yellows on this card, and thought an orange pumpkin wouldn't look right, so I colored it to look like one of those white-ish pumpkins.  Came out better than I was expecting!
