Thursday's cards



I'd been scratching my head looking for inspiration for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and then all of the sudden I realized that this colored image (which had been floating around my desk for the last week waiting for cause) was perfect.  I added the WMS Frame It sentiment as a way of saying thanks to Stephanie for her fabulous blog candy I won a couple of weeks ago.



This week's Play Date Cafe colors inspired me to pull out my PTI On My Couch set (plus Cristina's fabulous card put couches on my brain).  Many thanks to a fabulous blogging pal for the Bella Blvd papers.  That's it for today, there's still time to play along with 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday....

Materials: Shirley's 2 Girls Kite Clear Stamp, WMS Frame It sentiment, water color pencils, white gel pen, Versafine black ink, Fiskars corner rounder, Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder, PTI kraft card stock


Couch Card: PTI On My Couch stamp and die, Bella Blvd Family Dynamics patterned paper, Core'dinatiosn Sugar and Spice card stock, Versafine black ink, black sharpie, white card stock

What a great idea to use that image, and it IS colored so beautifully! Love it with the layered kraft background that you made, such an adorable and cheery thank you note!

Look how clever, created and talented you are! The coloring on your first card is fabulous, and I love how it mimics the sketch but doesn't overwhelm your card. And the couch card? Perfect! I swear ever paper pieced couch you've made I want a life size version in my living room.
