Beate & the Weekend Sketch Challenges are Back!


You can find Beate’s sketch here. Make sure to check out her sample as well as those from Cambria, Charmaine, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo, and Sharon . . . . I love to check out their takes on the sketches and can’t wait to see what these talented ladies have done this week and in the weeks to come!

Stamps: Anna’s Spring Birdie from Whipper Snapper

Ink: Palette Noir, miscellaneous markers to color

Paper: Card base is shimmery white, stripes, daisy, and yellow plaid (paper pieced birdie) are all from Imaginisce’s For Peep’s Sake collection. I *love* the way this paper’s already all glittered up! I bought all of these at my local scrapbook store, and don’t know of an online source, so the links go right to Imaginisce. I also used scraps of Certainly Celery & Regal Rose.

Accessories: Martha Stewart Scalloped/Embossed punch, May Arts ribbon, Imaginisce raindrop brad.

This layout is one I’ll certainly use again. . . .like later this evening. I love not having any plans for Friday night! That means I can play . . .
