Divas Sketch Challenge #186

Good morning!  Can you believe it's the weekend!!  So happy!  My Dad came in yesterday, and we have all kinds of stuff to do today!  Tennis and Baseball for the most part! LOL!

Here's the sketch this morning--I hope you'll play along!


and my card:


Talk about simple!!  I used the Summer Smooches Designer Paper and Tangerine Tango ink and cardstock!  The sentiment is from the Three Little Words stamp set, and the tag used the Clearly For You stamp set!  Both of these are retiring--be sure to get them before May 31!!

Be sure to check out the other design team creations on the UDI Blog!!

Saturday Sketch Challenge #253

Good afternoon!  We're off to tennis today, then more tomorrow, plus a double-header tomorrow!!  Then, my husband and I are off to Disney World, for 6 days of sun and fun--all compliments of Stampin' Up!  Yes, thanks to my wonderful group and my awesome customers, I earned the Disney incentive trip!  We are beyond excited!  Can't wait!!

But, for now, please enjoy today's sketch:


This is a fun sketch to work with--so many possibilities!!  Here's what I came up with:


I'm trying to use all my retiring stamp sets--I'll miss so many of them!  (but, am excited about all new stuff!)  This set is from "On Your Birthday".  It's one of my most used sets!  I stamped the sentiment in Black Stazon ink onto a piece of Twitterpated Designer Paper.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory!  I know--I am the queen of simple!  LOL!  I really try to do more complicated cards, but they just don't turn out!

Supplies used:

On Your Birthday Stamp Set

Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Baja Breeze cardstock;  Twitterpated Designer Paper

Black Stazon Ink

Blushing Bride Pleated Ribbon

For all the measurements, as well as some BEAUTIFUL cards, please check out the Stamping 411 Blog!

Have a GREAT week!

Yes, they came in this book--all very pretty!!  I love the way Stampin' Up! makes us all feel so special!


This is our "agenda"--it contains all the details of our trip!  and my name tag--again, so pretty!
