Little Paper Shop Monday Challenge (and a preview)!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Thankfully I was able to get in a teeny tiny bit of R&R over the weekend. Probably not as much as I needed, but enough to keep me going for a few more days. Tom is starting to feel better. I think he is actually planning on heading back to work today for the first time in a week. This is a good thing... I really need him to go back. Not because I don't want him here, but honestly I need our life to get back to normal.
And speaking of getting back to normal, I did get a little bit of stamping time this past week. Good thing, since today is the first preview day of the October Little Paper Shop release.

The October Little Paper Shop releases are AWESOME. Actually AWESOME is an understatement. I absolute love every single one of them! Are you ready to get working on your Christmas cards? If so, this is the release for you! The new release sets will be available to purchase on Saturday Oct 3rd.
Today the design team is giving you a fabulous sneak peak at the first of 4 new sets...{Katie Caroler}. This set is totally adorable and so fun to create with!
Not only is today preview day #1, but it is also challenge day. We have a super fun sketch for you this week. We'd love for you to play along too. If you do, be sure to leave a link to your creation on the LPS blog. One lucky challenge participant this week will will {Katie Caroler). You also have a 2nd chance to win {Katie Caroler} just by leaving a comment on the LPS blog today!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

This sketch was so much fun that I made a 2nd card with it. My 2nd card uses the recently released {Jena Witch} set. I just think she is the cutest witch EVER!

For more sneak peaks of {Katie Caroler} and more sketch inspiration, be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the Little Paper Shop design team:


Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the final Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge Contest challenge!
