Getting Sketchy with Sketch Saturday

It's time, once again, to get sketchy with the team at Sketch Saturday! You can see this week's fabulous sketch on their blog. Remember, if you make something with this sketch, please link it up over there -- it could win you a $15 gift code to our shop!!!

With Independence Day (4th of July) coming up here soon in the States, Kathy and I both used a patriotic theme for our Sketch Saturday samples. I know that not all of our followers are American, but hopefully you'll still find some inspiration here. If nothing else, red-white-and-blue is always a great color combination, don't you think? ;-)


You can see more fun samples made with this sketch, and of course the sketch itself, over at Sketch Saturday. Have a terrific weekend!!!

Puppy Power!

Today is our final card from Linda at Creepin AlongLinda has been our Guest Designer for June and what a great array of cards she has shared with us!!!  Thank you, Linda, for spending the month with us and showing us your creativity!  

Here's a little bit of what Linda had to say about her offering today:  This card came about because of encouragement from Kathy D to replace the slipper with the graduation cap, so I CASEd my own card.  

Now how is that for being creative?  CASE your own card!!  What a great idea!!!!  When I asked Linda about her favorite technique she said "I really do not have a favorite technique; I love to try it all.  There are so many techniques that I still want to try and have written on my “craft bucket list”.   

Check out what Linda created for us this week:  

 Linda took the hat from Congratulations Graduate and the dog from Dad's Day Off.  The dog originally had slippers in his mouth but look what she did!  I would have NEVER thought of that...once again Linda has inspired me to go outside the box.  Amazing!!!

Be sure to stop by Linda's blog and leave her some love:  Creepin Along.

Merry & Bright

One more Christmas card done way before December....yippee for Marji and I. We both decided to play along in Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge which is Merry & Bright....however you want to interpret that!

Marji used bright Christmas Paper to accent the sweater. While I went with lights being bright...and the image was called Merry & Bright so I couldn't go wrong!! :)

If you would like to get ahead of the Christmas rush come join us and play in the challenge for a chance to win several great prizes. Deedee's Digis is offering a $15.00 gift code to the store.

Last reminder for the Digi of the Month Challenge

Linda at Creepin Along is our Guest Designer for June and she decided she would share a card with you to remind you this is the LAST WEEK to play in the Digi of the Month Challenge.

It has been fun this month to see all the different variations of water used with Diver Daniel this month. This is the perfect embossing pattern to mimic water! Love the added bubbles and how she used the sea background as an accent.
