Hello My Friend!!

Yesterday, I was in the mood to make a card using kraft cardstock, though I was not sure why. (lol) I decided to play with the sketch from this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches (#152), so here is my card.





I did some paper piecing for the roofs, so this card fit for Ribbon Caroucel challenge 59 too.

Thank you for stopping by. Please check back here later for the final preview of this month's TSG release!:)

TSG Blog Hop Challenge Day3 -- Poultry in Motion

June 28, 2012

It's Day3 of this month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges! The stamp set we are showing today is Poultry in Motion.
When drawing up last month’s Oh Crop set, there were just TOO many cute images and sayings for one set, so we HAD to split it into two. Poultry In Motion is the companion set to Oh Crop, and includes SEVERAL new sayings, and more ADORABLE images you are sure to love! From the farmer’s wife, to several more barn yard friends, you will LOVE what you can create when these two sets combine.


Poultry in Motion is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 30 stamps and will sell for $18.00.



Funny? He he! I just thought a flock of sheep looked cuter than a lonely sheep.:)

Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #64

June 18, 2012

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down or click HERE for my TSG challenge post.

It has been long time since I played with Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge last time. Her sketches are always fabulous, but usually, they seem a bit difficult for me to work with. But this week, the sketch is so clean and simple! So I had to play with:D




I drew inspiration for the color combo from a print that I stumbled across and pinned to my Pinterest board awhile back.



Thank you for looking!!
