SCS Sketch Challenge and Blog Candy Winnings

Boy, I hope the sun is shining where you are today ....
it is a BEAUTIFUL day here in N.E. Ohio!!!

I know you are asking yourself ... then why is she in the house and not outside ... well, I wanted to create a couple of cards to share with you all ... and THEN, I'm headed outdoors to complete my fall cleanup project!!! I'm headed to Indiana this weekend to join in on a fun GET TOGETHER with my friend Joan Fricker of Joan's Gardens has planned and I am SO EXCITED to be going. But I MUST get my chores completed first ... so I'd better be quick about it!!!

My first card was created for the Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. I recently purchased this sleigh image which was created by a local Ohio artist (StacyStamps) and thought it was perfect for today's layout.

Here are the deets on this creation:

Papers: Basic Grey dp, DCWV dp, Whisper White cs
Inks: Versafine black
Accessories: Prismacolor Markers, Gold Pilot Marker, Prima flowers & leaves, Creative Imaginations brad, metal ruler, craft knife

The other creation I would like to share with you today uses this adorable The Character Cafe image that I was lucky enough to win on Angie Cortes Designs Blog a short while back! Isn't he just the cutest little thing!!! His name is Christmas Scamp and it sure looks like he's in for trouble!!!

Here are the deets:

Stamps: Hero Arts (sentiment)
Papers: Christmas Red, Whisper White, DCWV Indian Summer Glitter dp (gift from Vicki Parsons - thanks lady!)
Inks: computer ink, Versafine black
Accessories: Prismacolor Markers, Fiskars decal scissors, JoAnn's organdy ribbon, Liquid Applique, Ranger embossing tinsel

Thanks so much for stopping by today ... now I'm headed outside to enjoy this lovely fall day and get some work done!! Hope you are having a wonderful day whereever you are and whatever you are doing!! Happy Stamping!!!
