Card sketch #4

Happy Friday everyone!  Sketch N Scrap's last sketch of the month is up- YIKES! it's almost July!- so I wanted to help you start your weekend out right with some scrappy inspiration!  Here is the card sketch by me:

Here is my example using this sketch:

Supplies used: Cardstock- Stampin Up: Very Vanilla, Soft Sky & Chocolate Chip; Patterned
Paper: Stampin Up; punches: Stampin Up; Stamp: Stampin Up; ink: chocolate chip by Stampin Up;
Embossing folder: fan by Stampin Up.

I just love this sentiment stamp!  It is my favorite for birthdays!  I don't even know who I am going to give this card to yet, but it is always nice to have a bunch of birthday cards on hand, as I am terrible about remembering people's birthdays and am always needing a last minute card!   There are still 9 days left to play along with our four monthly sketches at Sketch N Scrap, so hop on over and check out what the DT did with this card sketch and get inspired to get a jump start on stockpiling some cards up for those last minute occasions!  TGIF!

Sketch N Scrap #35 & a winner!

Can you believe we are half way through June already? I can't! Before I know it the summer will be over, I need to get going on my summer bucket list!  Today we have another fun sketch for you over a Sketch N Scrap!  Here is the sketch by Brenshevia:

And here is my layout using the sketch:
Supplies Used: Patterned papers: Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl; alphabets: Paper Trunk(white & green),
Doodlebug (black), Fancy Pants (yellow); Sticker: Basic Grey Bowties line; border punch: Stampin Up.

I have had these pictures of my sweet little nephew sitting on my desk for over a year now waiting for the right inspiration for them...I finally found it in that cute little bug sticker I purchased with the Basic Grey Bowtie line over the weekend at the Great American Scrapbook Convention! Weird thing was I wanted to use up these papers from an old kit I have had since 2007 and the scraps left were perfect for this sketch and the sticker actually matched...LOVE IT when things come together like that! lol!  I am now down to scraps for this kit and hope to make a few cards t finish it up over the weekend. 

Now a moment you have all been waiting for!  Thanks to everyone who participated in my KIT SEQUEL and SKETCH WITH A TWIST birthday bash challenges for Sketch N Scrap's birthday bash!  We had a total of 14 entries!  The randomly selected winner for the Webster's pages washi tape is..........................
