I got the pleasure of working with some wonderful stamps from Our Craft Lounge, and here is a card I made using the stamps from the Pat the Dawg House set:

365 Sketch and a Sponsor

This week we have a new sponsor at 365 Cards. The ladies from Torendi generously shared some product from their October kit, so I played with a little of it for my sketch card.

From the October kit, I used Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper, and some rubons from E.A.D. Designs. Come join us this week and play along!

World Cardmaking Day!

It's nearly 9 PM as I write this, but I believe it is still technically World Cardmaking Day, so this is my celebratory card! It took me several hours to complete because I had to start and stop a bunch, but I got it done.

I was looking for some inspiration, and I really wanted to use a digital image that I created for a 365 challenge, so I hopped over to 2 Sketches 4 You to see the weekly sketch - and to my pleasant surprise they have one created especially for today and it works beautifully with my pumpkin. So here's the sketch and my card:

I think I'm definitely in the mood for Halloween, so I had fun making this card. It's been ages since I've played along with Kazan and Laura's sketches, so I was glad to pop over there and see what they've been up to.

Have a GREAT weekend!!!!
