Sketch Challenge SC182

I don't do the SCS sketch challenges very often but I really liked this week's sketch (and I've seen a lot of cute cards on other people's blogs made with this week's sketch). To make the background squares a decent size I had to make this a really big card (6x6). I didn't have great lighting when I took the pictures so the colors are a bit off. The cardstock base is a chocolate chip color. The layers are Ruby Red. The DP is this delish Cosmo Cricket paper that I got at Hobby Lobby this week (sb paper is 50% off this week @ HL). The bird stamp is from the clear Inkadinkado set "Birds Galore" (Thanks Kisa!) and the sentiment is from Verve Visual. I also used Prismacolor markers and pencils along with some SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the bird. Not sure the manufacturer of the ribbon (sorry).
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!


I didn't get to stamp yesterday so I got up early this morning and headed straight for the basement. If I can't stamp during the day, I might as well get up before everyone else and stamp in peace and quiet. I got this butterfly stamp set in the mail from Kisa earlier in the week and I have been dying to play with it. I love butterfly stamps...especially ones that you can paper piece easily. There are 4 different stamps in this set and I love all of them! This is just a simple no sentiment card. I mainly just wanted to experiment with the butterflies. When I first started I made all three thinking I was going to line them up across the card except they didn't fit (after I had already glued all the mats together), oops! I decided to try the zig zag layout and thought it turned out ok. Nothing too exciting, just playing around!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Have you been wondering where I am?

Probably not, but I'll tell you anyway...nowhere. I have just been sitting at home all week accomplishing nothing. I wish I had a card or something to share but I haven't had time this week to do anything crafty. I have to babysit today which probably means no stamping time again but we'll see. I hope you are all having a great week and I hope to have something to share soon!
