As I've stated in my Tidbit Tuesday Newsletter (sign up now, ladies!) I've used the Sketch Challenge SC205 from Splitcoaststampers as my Inspiration Layout.  I posted the first and my favorite, ok tied with the Santa card shown here, the other day.  I find I sometimes in a gentle nudge or a boost up to get started with my stamping.  Layouts or Sketches are the perfect route to go.  Here's two more from the Sketch Challenge as stated in my newsletter.


This card uses the Kind Thoughts set that's on the Retiring List and thus at a 10% discount.  The colors are fun but it needs a bit more.  I think I may need a little Dazzling Diamonds to jazz it up a bit.

  • CS:  Sahara Sand, Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy

Ok, here's my other favorite.


  • CS:  White, Glorious Green, Real Red
  • Inks:  Real Red (touched the cheeks with my finger dipped in ink), Basic Black

  • Punches:  Scallop Circle, Three For You, Word Window, Square Scallop, 1/4" Circle Punch

  • Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.

That's it for today.  Enjoy!
