Stamping At Last

Tracy's Happy Place July Sketch

Oh, it feels so good to be in my craft room again. I had a fine time this morning catching up on some challenges. The first card is for Tracy's Happy Place. Each month Tracy puts up a sketch and we create cards based on that sketch. You can see July's sketch here. This is my card.

Cardstock: Bazzill, SU Black
Patterned Paper: Pallette O'Prints
Stamp: Katiebug Rubber Stamps
Ink: Black StazOn
Accessories: Prismacolor Markers, crystals

Fresh & Fun's Weekend Sketch Challenge 11

My next card was made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge - 11 which you can see here. I broke open my new package of the In-Colors and used Blue Bayou for the base. I must admit, though, after being away for a bit, I just sat there looking at all the supplies and couldn't figure out where to start. Heaven forbid I should ever take a 3-week holiday. I don't know what would happen to my creative brain, such as it is! Anyway, it finally kicked in and this card is the result.

Cardstock: Blue Bayou
Patterned Paper: Self-Addressed Kit for July
Stamp: Polka Dots & Paisley
Ink: Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Blue Bayou ribbon, brads

OMG!!! LOL!!! That "patient" stamp is so funny!!! Where did you get that? I totally need it! We have family friends (a married couple) that are both, either recovering from surgery or getting ready to go into surgery in a few weeks. I would love to send them a card with that image!!!
