Bbash1042007 I copied this one right out of the catalog!!  The fun thing about this card is that I had make my own markers for the Marigold Morning and Cranberry Crisp!  All you do is take a blender pen and add some of the ink refill to the tip!!  Voila!  You have your own In Color markers!!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!!  We're off again tomorrow for another whirlwind of baseball!!  Two games tomorrow, four on Sunday, and one on Monday!!  But, I absolutely love watching the boys play, so I don't mind at all!!

Good Afternoon!

Hi everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend!!  Mine was busy--had two club meetings!  It was fun though--even with a cold!!  I'm home from work today because of the cold--it just won't go away!

My upline is having a monthly meeting this coming Sunday, and I've joined her swap.  She's in Ohio, so I don't get to attend the meeting, but I enjoy participating in the swap--these ladies are very talented!!  My card is pictured below.  I got the idea from a card I saw here.  I used the same colors, but changed it a bit.

SCS Sketch Challenge!

Tkfitescschal118_2 Hello all!!  I have been working hard on projects for my two club meetings this weekend!  But, I did manage to do a card sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers--SC118.  I was very happy with how it turned out!!

Stamp set:  Doodle This & Aida Cloth background.

Ink:  Black Stazon, Rose Red & Barely Banana.  I used So Saffron on the background stamp--it showed up a little better than Barely Banana.
