SCS Sketch Challenge

I had these Thomas Kinkade images already cut ... with the blank ivory card ... all I needed was inspiration and it came today in the form of the Splitcoaststamper's Sketch Challenge!! Worked great with the size of the imges and just by either using dp or making my own dp, these cards came together very quickly! Don't they look great!!

I was actually able to use up some scraps of paper I had on my worktable and I had noticed that a had a few spools of ribbon that were nearly empty so I was able to use those scraps too!

What a fun sketch and you can use it on any size card! My cards here are a Valupack I bought at Michael's through the summer and I believe they are A-8 size. (Perfect for these larger TK images.) They were on sale ... 50 cards & envelopes for $5.99. So, I bought a pack of the ivory and a pack of the white ... couldn't pass up the price.

I'd best get going ... we are headed down to our granddaughter Morgan's concert at the high school and we're going a little early so we can share "chili" with them before hand. Yum!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Very pretty cards. They are so well colored they almost look like pictures.

I haven't forgotten your goodies, I've been carrying them around but haven't made it to the post office. I'm so sorry but I will get them in the mail this week.

What great cards! Wasn't it the best sketch for using up scraps? Hey, I finally figured out how to put a counter on my blog,(thanks to Peanutbee) and I got 12 hits already this morning. I knew people were looking cause they were mentioning my blog via through other correspondence, they just weren't leaving comments. I even got an email asking me to post a pic of the outside of my house too!
