Hey Gang! It’s another sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This was a fun one to work with.  I wrestled with my color combo but finally came up with this number. Naturally, there is some pink involved. Ha!


This is a Strawberry Slush and Basic Gray duo. I used the Hardwood background stamp on the gray with Craft Stampin’ Ink and topped it with the In Colors DSP. I want us all to have a moment of silence… in hopes that Strawberry Slush will be continued! Oh my, I LOVE it!


The stamps sets I used are Crazy About You and For Being You. I used the Banner Punch and trimmed it with the Paper Snips. The Pansy punched DSP is topped with a Basic Metal Button and Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

I hope you’ll play along with us this week! It is certain to get your creative mojo flowing! Click here to join in the fun!


So Negative…



Yep! So very negative with this card. 😉 I was cutting out pieces using the Banners Framelits Dies and really liked the left over paper and decided to use it. I used the Perfect Pennants stamp set and embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder. For an embellishment I used the new Basic Metal Buttons (which I happen to love dearly!).

I think it may be hard to tell in the picture but I mounted the negative with dimensionals to… well… give it some dimension! 😉

School and work are finally back this week and it is quiet around the house and I can get stuff done! YES!!!

I hope you all have a very blessed day!
