Monday, Monday... so good to me

Good Morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  I did.  It was pretty much quiet and very low key.  It rained all weekend long so I stayed very low.

I am not certain if I am going about this application process the right way for My Time Made Easy, but I am definitely giving it a go.  Lauren and her team are doing a call for the sketch team and you all know how much I love sketches.  The call requires you to participate with each challenge for the month of October.  So here's my first card using Sketch #29.

This card features the adorable snowmen from The Greeting Farm set Warm Wishes.  It also features some really cute digi paper from My Time Made Easy.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black (Recollections), Bashful Blue
Stamps/Ink:  Warm Wishes (TGF), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics:  B000, G02, B05, BV00, BV02, C8, C10, R11, R27, R29, RV000, RV02, RV10, YR16
Tools:  Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Labels One Nesties (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug
Embellishments:  turquoise ribbon (Offray)

This second card is for Sketch #30 and for the fun of it, I added MTME's Pretty Palette challenge.  The colors are Artichoke, Celery, Melon and Daffodil.  I did as close to those colors as I could.  I think my card is really pretty.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, So Saffron
Paper:  Sugared (Basic Grey)
Stamps/Ink:  Your Friendship (SNSS), Dandelion (Memento), Always Artichoke (SU!)
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Textile emb folder, Labels Two Nesties (Spellbinders), flower punch (EK Success), leaves punch (The Punch Bunch)
Embellishments:  Rhinestones (Studio 18), satin ribbon (Offray)

I had so much fun playing along with the sketches and the color challenges.  Now to figure out how to apply!  Wish me luck.

Have a super Monday.  Oh, and if you were here to see a challenge card for Paper Pretties, there isn't one this week because today is a new release.  You've probably seen the sneak peeks, but if not... click HERE.
