So Sketch N Scrap is having a super fun Summer Sizzlin' Crop going on right now. I hope you have a chance to go over to the SNS Crop Page and play along.

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #101

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July here in America. We were able to watch quite a few great displays of fireworks the last couple of days and the kids loved it. 
And now I'm back today with a card sketch I designed for Sketch-N-Scrap.
I've just purchased the Concord & 9th Orange You Sweet stamp and die set and I was so ready to play with it. It's such a versatile set, I see myself using it a lot in the future for some great cards.

Sketch N Scrap 5th Birthday Bash Sketch #4

Today I have the 4th special sketch for SNS's 5th Birthday Bash.
This whole card started with the red wood grain banner. I had previously cut it out for something else that I never used it on. With the sketch in hand I was determined to make that precut banner work. I paired it with some other papers in my scrap stash. The banner is from Claudine Hellmuth and the stamp is from Sizzix.

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #98

I have a card sketch for you today designed by Lisa for Sketch-N-Scrap.
I had fun stamping a few farm animals using Studio Calico's Party Animal Stamp and Die set.  There are a few different sentiments that come with, and this one is perfect for making graduations cards.
